The much awaited, new Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection debuts its resort collection. Fashion queen Victoria Beckham has merged her Victoria Beckham Denim line into the Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection. The gorgeous 41-year-old mother of four speaks to WWD about Victoria, Victoria Beckham Pre Spring Summer 16, “I’m really excited about this collection — it’s exactly what I want in my wardrobe, these are things that I want to wear, and I think these are things that my customer wants to wear.” The lady goes on to explain that the new collection comprises of designer clothes, slightly less expensive, but without compromising with regards to design or fabric.
The new Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection has taken inspiration from the circus, for its “fun, colorful attitude.” It can be seen in form of an elephant and big-top motifs on dresses and an acrobat-and-dancing horses print on a yellow silk pantsuit. On the whole, the collection for resort has a bold, youthful spirit, with strong yet feminine silhouettes, in a palette that contrasts striking reds and deep yellows with black, white and pastel blue.
The creations include the likes of a white cotton piqué dress with cape sleeves embroidered with dancing elephants, a black wool gabardine minidress with detachable vinyl flowers at the hem, short-sleeved blouses in crisp cotton with full, fluted sleeves, and jeans that run from wide-leg denim culottes to skinny, faded jeans patched with vinyl flowers. The collection will also include the denim line’s core fits, alongside the more fashion-led designs.
Though the Victoria, Victoria Beckham line was launched primarily as a dress collection in 2012, the fusion of the two lines happened quite naturally. “It’s something that we wanted to do as a team for a long time. We’d been focusing on dresses, so it’s been great to be able to have jeans and shirting, [too],”added Beckham.
Zach Duane, chief executive officer of Victoria Beckham, said while both the VVB collection and Victoria Beckham Denim line performed “with strong sell-through and overall seasonal growth,” he believes that by presenting the lines as one collection “the…impact to the business will be greater.”
Prices for the collection run from $215 for a jersey kick-sleeve T-shirt through to $1,895 for a leather jacket with appliquéd flowers.
