Victoria Beckham Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW – NYFW

While many years have passed since Victoria Beckham was Posh Spice and walking around in corsets, the idea of an hourglass figure has always remained in her psyche. Using that understanding of the beautiful figure, our favorite designer, the lady Victoria, has come back with a rather interesting combination of designs, leaving shoulders bare for the fall and winter, surprisingly. It appears that while the colors of the Victoria Beckham fall 2016 RTW collection are subdued and of a darker essence, the pieces themselves show off quite a few strapless and spaghetti strapped ideals, playing with the lines and really working on showing off the bodies underneath.

She plays as her own muse here, wearing a thick ribbed turtleneck sweater with cropped pants and sneakers to her post show appearance. “It’s an evolution of my personal style,” she said during a preview. “I have created wardrobe pieces that feel fresh and are what I think women want.” For one thing, we have always thought that Beckham catered to what women want. It is just how she naturally works.

We often expect chic, sexy and sophisticated lines from Victoria Beckham, something that she aptly delivers, but with a growing need to relax her pieces, pulling it away from the body and allowing the material to fall in a manner that we might not have seen a few years back. She brings in the feminine of course, and defines the figure, but uses bold riffs on haberdashery fabrics for the effects, all coming in with earthy palettes.

For those with a special love for the corset dresses, Beckham brought in slits and dangling strings under the bust, with fuller volume skirts and off-kilter paneling for an artsy but rather wonderful effect. The new look seems to be created from a lean dropped torso and bubble skirt while has a beguiling charm to it, even if it is not exactly what we are used to from her.

Beckham has looked into her own wardrobe and reworked things so that the styles stay fresh but the looks flatter the body with ease. The bustier was made appropriate for the daytime with one of her tartan inspired looks, while we notice spongy houndstooth jacquard and lots of checks and stripes throughout the collection.

For the curvy effect, Beckham layered on the body-con ribbed knit pieces, particularly since the fabrics themselves are not meant to hug a woman’s body like that. Cling was balanced out with volume and we got a whole lot of outerwear that was just too perfect, considering the Prince of Wales checks utilized underneath. Clutch coats with fringe detailing appear, softly structured and made to wear with the more sharply defined pieces underneath. You cannot help but love the line as a whole, particularly the all in black pieces that redefine sexy while sophisticated on a night spent out.
