Victoria Beckham created the collection around separates as a response to her customer: “It’s what she wants — to buy into looks, pants, shirting and outerwear, and put her own twist on it,” she said. “She wants to have fun, but still feel sophisticated and cool.”
Texture was major, as was pattern, as in a black flower print on a velvet suit, slouchy striped silk pajama pants and swans printed onto shirts, done in spongy lace for tops, or gliding over tapestry bombers. Texture came in the form of coats made from 3-D-patterned velvet that resembled astrakhan, and dark corduroy patches on coats.
Volume was a prominent theme — and one that Beckham, in her floor-grazing flared trousers and chunky sweater — embodied. She’s put a new spin on VVB tailored denim trousers, and is doing a slimmer take on her best-selling flared ones. Volume also came in the form of patchwork cotton shirtdresses, as well as airy blouses with knot details. There was even an oversized sweater inspired by a Mondrian painting. “VVB is a lot about color,” she said.
