Victoria Beckham has been feeling the creative urge to readdress her aesthetic signature now that she has a store of her own in London. Indeed, the designer approached spring a lot like a retailer, with staple items — a shirt, a sweater, a coat — that may have hinted at a few directions but were united by Beckham with polish and commercial appeal. These included the uniform-inspired jute looks, such as the elongated coat with subtle military details like soft epaulets and workwear pockets. The knits and graphic stripes made a bolder statement, though she kept the lineup’s surprise for the finale of bright florals that were screen-printed on voluminous woven raffia skirts and shown with white cotton shirts. It may have been a sharp turn from the rest, but Beckham saw a romance in these looks. As she put it, they were “the perfume to the collection.”
