New York Fashion Week Series: 4. Victoria Beckham SS13

Fresh and feminine body conscious dresses, block colour simplicity, a little lingerie inspiration and the introduction of separates (bias cut skirts and short shorts). I have to give it to Victoria Beckham I really like how she is evolving as a designer.

I had expected to see another collection of fitted dress after fitted shift dress but I liked the new separates and had a surprising amount of affection for the A line skirts – styles that usually terrify me as they remind me of badly fitted school uniform days*.  A little sporty perhaps and very aesthetically pleasing with the geometric influences running throughout (I like that kind of structure) – Victoria Beckham SS13 was a hit with me.

Beckham still included dresses within the collection; my favourite was a nude dress with bodice detail (image top) like a second skin against the body.  Another favourite (image below) – a crisp white dress with broderie anglaise cotton sections cut around the chest.  Because of the simplicity in the designs this season, I felt Beckham was a wearable collection indeed.

*Mum if you are reading this, this is not your fault. I merely blame my school for their choices, especially those awful blazers.

    I have to say, as far as designers are concerned, Victoria Beckham has really surprised me… particularly this season. When she first made the leap from Spice Girl to the design world, I admit that I was extremely skeptical, but she has proven to be quite astute – and I really can’t argue with her colour palette :)
    xox,
    Cee

    I have to admit too that she is impressing me… there is that “Beckham Look” in the skin tight numbers but she is showing growth of range which is so encouraging.

    When I first heard Posh was launching a clothing line, I’ll admit I was dismissive but wow has she changed my mind. Her collections are getting more and more impressive, and I’m with you on that nude dress – absolutely amazing.
