New York Fashion Week Series: 4. Victoria Beckham SS13
2nd October 2012
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.
