Since she started her brand, Victoria Beckham’s collection has always been an extension of her ideal wardrobe. That said, she is particularly fond of pre-collections because “it’s really about what I desire and what I want to wear,” she said during a preview of resort. Presumably she meant that without having to ramp things up for runway drama, she can focus on purely reality-based clothes. In that sense, the collection was stocked with beautiful everyday gear for a woman with a taste for refined, modernist femininity.

The pieces felt cool and easy but also quite special. For example, a tailored tan coat had delicate chain details draped across the front on one side. A similar detail dangled from the hem of a navy dress. A wool blazer had a soft, fluid back. Sharp black leather pants had red rear pockets and a matching waistband. Some of the plaid she featured on her fall runway carried over in warmer, brighter colors — green, pink, orange, blue — that were accented nicely on both ends of the spectrum with rich neutrals and neon shoes and bags. Beckham noted that she had slimmed her silhouette with nice body-skimming dresses, liquid tops and trousers that fell into a slight flair. The palette and weights — ranging from cashmere to crepe — were light enough to be layered. The clothes made “trans-seasonal,” that made up pre-collection buzzword, feel legitimate.
