When it comes to mastering Nineties-inspired creations, Victoria Beckham is never a disappointment. Former Posh Spice took Nineties references and translated them to the contemporary Victoria Beckham spring/summer 2017 collection, presented at New York Fashion Week a few hour ago.
Polished in every single detail to the nines, the Victoria Beckham spring 2017 runway line-up also blended in the mix a few athleisure-inspired motifs, drawing the collection to a close with unconventionally conceptual patterns that might even come as a surprise for those who are used to Beckham’s signature style.
The British designer’s evolution towards a more contemporary style was overall well received both among her aficionados as well as relatives, with both husband David Beckham and son Brooklyn supporting Victoria from the runway show’s front row. Brooklyn even captioned his feelings regarding the collection on Twitter, congratulating her on the success of the collection. “What an amazing show. Well done, mum,” he captioned.
Deconstructed and architectural, the Victoria Beckham spring/summer 2017 collection took New York by surprise indeed, proclaiming (at least) three future major trends. Beckham’s warmer seasons include tons of velvet fabrics, the richness and elegance of which helped the architectural bra tops and loungewear trousers gently wrap up the bodies, exuding Beckham’s savoir-faire and girl power attitude from the Nineties.
While velvet appears to be Beckham’s must-have fabric, the designer’s spring 2017 must-have silhouette is unapologetically curve-hugging, with clingy mini and midi dresses dominating the scene. Lastly (and this time around unsurprisingly), Beckham’s ultimate trend includes two Nineties-inspired revisited hair and makeup styles, sported by Beckham when the Spice Girls were still in formation.
All of the models were channeling not only middle-parted hair styled with a super flat effect, but also ultra-Nineties-inspired bright blue eyeliner, courtesy of Estée Lauder (Beckham has partnered with the French brand for an upcoming beauty collection).
Aside from the overall Nineties-inspired ensembles, the Victoria Beckham spring/summer 2017 collection treated us to hipster-approved proposals that are just perfect from day to night. Divided in three sections, the line-up mixes the first ones with one another (namely the more Nineties and the athleisure-inspired ones) just to create a third more conceptual kind of section, dominated by floral embroideries, kimono oversized shirts and deconstructed knit dresses and jackets.
Stripes play a huge role within the collection’s finale too, veering most of the line-up’s pieces to a sort of revisited cosmopolitan loungewear style. This style is surely emphasized by Beckham’s ample usage of velvet fabrics, although the velvet proposals tend to fluctuate to a more urban warrior sort of style rather than to a merely Nineties-inspired look in this specific case.
We can firmly state that Beckham’s woman exudes confidence and sex appeal for sure, and will fiercely walk her way through the next spring/summer season one slip dress at a time.
