“She’s growing up with me,” said Victoria Beckham, referring to her second line Victoria, Victoria Beckham during a walk-through at her store on London’s Dover Street. “It’s still fun but more chic, sophisticated and grown-up.” The lineup was a strong one, full of flattering shapes, outdoorsy patterns and eye-searing, intense colors.
Beckham worked bits of colored raffia into flower shapes across a black one-shoulder mididress and matching sweatshirt top and whipped up a spongy 3-D flower pattern around the bottom of a mint green A-line dress. Another dress had a forest scene — river, sky and trees — rendered in different textures of fabric and in shades of salmon, mint, blue and gray.
While the motifs may have been inspired by the natural world, the color palette could not have been more artificial — in the best possible way. A fluorescent pink coat was paved with 3-D fabric flowers in orange and rose; a teal shearling biker jacket was lined with mint-colored fur, and another topper came in deep purple, with a shiny black plastic toggle at the front.
Denim, now a part of this collection, came as a sleeveless dress screen-printed with the forest scene, and sweet skirts and jeans edged with panels of navy blue felt.
