Victoria Beckham Resort 2016

With flourishes of cut, specifically asymmetric draping and folds, Victoria Beckham gave her resort lineup a panache that swung to the easy side of arty.

With three pre-collections behind her, Victoria Beckham finally felt comfortable enough with resort to show it to press. She approached it not as a season with a major theme, but one that answers the diverse wardrobe needs of her customers. “I really feel like I understand my customer. I understand what she wants and what she needs out of her wardrobe,” Beckham said. “It’s been great having the store at Dover Street to really get to know her more and more, so now feels like the right time to do this.”

 

What the customer wants: a balance between signature (read: sexy, body-con dresses) and fashion. Surrounded by racks integrating the two, Beckham highlighted the latter. She’s recently become interested in flourishes of cut, specifically asymmetric draping and folds. For resort, this gave the clothes a panache that swung to the easy side of arty. A fringed cape was cut on a slant over cropped, cuffed pants; the hem of a breezy white lace kilt dipped in faux-haphazard mien. A side-draped dress and tunic took sharper, geometric drops, each side-fastened with a white floral brooch, a small, delightful detail that carried through the collection. Yet as Beckham noted, her customer has multiple needs, and December is a time for all-out glamour. While the designer obliged with alluring gowns, her most interesting proposal was an oh-so-light black sequined jacket tucked into cropped trousers. A smoking of the cool sort.
