While we all admire Victoria Beckham’s gorgeous body and iconic style, not all of us can sport the body-conscious dresses that so much flatter the hourglass shape of body. This is one of the reasons why the singer turned designer, Victoria Beckham, decided to develop her designs and bring forth some looser, more forgiving separates for the Victoria Beckham spring/summer 2013 collection, demonstrated at New York Fashion Week. The line was all about simplicity, practicality, elegance and perfectly polished outfits that could be easily adapted from day to night looks.
“This season I wanted to show how the design criteria that is inherent to the Victoria Beckham brand can be applied in new ways while still staying true to my aesthetic and purpose. Quality and luxury have always been the essence of the ready-to-wear and those remain the cornerstone of the collection while a new notion of versatility, modernity and ease have been introduced,” Mrs. Beckham stated during a preview.
The Victoria Beckham spring/summer 2013 collection brought chic and perfectly tailored separates, instead of dresses and stylish suits that she has gotten us used to seeing. The line revolved around a simple color palette, consisting of blacks, whites and reddish orange tones, and there was no room for prints. There were bias-cut midi skirts, cotton blouses, slim pants, crisp shirts, bra tops, bell-shaped mini skirts worn with waist cut blazers, blouses that used some lace insertion, bodycon mini dresses and skirts with a flared ruffle. The looks were finished off with masculine inspired shoes, flip flop-gladiator sandals and peep-toe ankle booties.
Backstage, she shared her vision with Vogue stating that, “there’s not one single thing out there that I would not wear myself. I always design what I want to wear, and I want to wear more than a dress”, and obviously her signature style was reflected in every piece in the collection.
Victoria Beckham also teared up, as she showed up on the runway. “It was just such an emotional collection for me,” the designer said backstage, according to Elle UK.
