From sharp tailoring to feminine fabrics, a vibrant yet gentle colour palette and accessories you can’t not have, Victoria Beckham is a label after our own hearts.
When Posh Spice–former pop sensation entered into the world of fashion with a denim line–it was assumed her need to expand into the sartorial world would die down like many other celebrities who had walked down the same path. Just when critics were willing to write off her debut at New York Fashion Week, right after the Beckhams moved to the States, Victoria Beckham surprised everyone with a presentation sans fanfare and much gumption. Now a watched-out for show in the circuits, Victoria Beckham’s label is known for its elevated staples, her handbags dictate the changing shapes of ‘it-accessories’ and is shockingly colour-friendly.
As Le Mill brings the label to your favourite shopping haunt, here are 5 reasons–as if you needed any–to show Victoria Beckham some love.
When the label first launched, Beckham was partial to body hugging sheaths. As her personal style evolved, she made room for wider cuts, soft tailoring and lighter fabrics. Despite the heavy influence of her personal style in the ‘90s, Beckham’s dedication to learning the ropes of design is what really made critics turn to her side.
Beckham makes clothes for women to feel beautiful and sensual without necessarily baring their bodies. The deliberate use of layering, usage of fabrics, seeking styling inspiration in other fashion icons is what makes the label–which has never engaged in media tactics stand out.
It’s normal for the whole Beckham clan to turn up on the fashion week circuit and be sat next to fashion editors front row. In fact you can see the kids practically grow up in front of your eyes season after season. Who needs celebrities in seats when the family will do?
Victoria Beckham who is actually fairly self conscious often avoids making eye contact with paparazzi giving off a cold persona. One fine day she walked out in a cheeky t-shirt that read ‘Fashion Stole my Smile’ reminding her critics that she does after all have a funny bone in her body.
She recorded this iconic video for British Vogue, titled ‘A Decade of Elegance’ that parodies on her image as a glamazon. From catsuits, to a pickup truck filled with thrones, this hilarious video shot to celebrate 10 years of her brand is nothing short of hilarious. Edward Enninful and Charlotte Tilbury have cameos in this gem.
