Editorial

A graphic, understated collection from Victoria Beckham, who said she had looked into her own wardrobe and reworked it. The idea was to make the bustier appropriate for daywear, using masculine fabrics such as Prince of Wales frayed at the edges and hems or a spongy houndstooth in eye-catching shades such as black and khaki or blue, white and orange. The result was linear dresses, and slip dresses, some of which had cut-outs over the abdomen, with midi length skirts that were never too fitted to the body, flared or made of overlapping panels. The corset shape was picked out in a contrast on knits, while the outerwear returned to check patterns with straight tailored lines or softer, oversize shapes.
