The Beckham family is definitely proud of mommy, who managed to build up a breathtaking outfit repertoire of the cold season. The Victoria Beckham Fall 2012 ready-to-wear collection presented during New York Fashion Week reflects the personal style of the designer who revealed that, “There isn’t one thing in the collection I wouldn’t wear myself. I want to wear everything!” Casual chic ensembles were suppressed by a statement and more luxurious set of fashion compositions which reveal the aspirations of Mrs. Beckham towards achieving perfection and a new level in design techniques.
No wonder the style godmother has won the Designer Brand Award at the British Fashion Awards in 2011. This is the perfect moment to show off her talent to strengthen her reputation as a real fashion force. Sticking to the golden middle road between casual and evening wear we’ll have the privilege to witness the birth of an original clothing style which relies on sharp and military chic details with a tint of sensuality and elegance.
Victoria reveals to Graziadaily that, “ I’ve been able to focus on the ready to wear in a different way and reinvent my signature. It’s all about construction and quality. The hardware and military influence is coming from the handbags. I am so excited about the new Harper bag. I am designing what I want myself. And I can’t wait to wear it.” There are also additional utilitarian chic elements which were inspired by the lifestyle and the daily routine of the Beckham family. We have beanie hats, boyfriend jackets along with ribbed socks which all make reference to the sporty chic outfits of David Beckham. VB confessed that, “And the baseball stripes and jersey cuffs came about when I was standing in kitchen and Romeo runs in wearing a baseball kit and I thought that’s it. It looks so cool.”
Floor-sweeping gowns are completely eliminated from the collection as the designer works only with a small team and they are unable to provide celebs with scene-stealing evening dresses yet. Instead, we have a diverse parade of shirt-dresses, some of them tinted with a block color, in black or offered in a two-tone design. The chromatic scale is moderate in order to adapt to the hottest color trends of the fall/winter 2012 season. Complementing the voguish ensembles with skinny belts and knee-high Christian Louboutin boots is again oh-so-characteristic of the groundbreaking style ambitions of Victoria Beckham.
Whether you consider yourself a classy-chic fan or an ultra-confident trendsetter, these apparel ideas will definitely make your pulse race. Horizontal bands and chunky color blocks when embedded into the design of stylish dresses will definitely help us juggle with our proportions and shift the attention to feminine curves. The shirt-collar gives a preppy allure to all these high-street dresses drenched in khaki, red or grey tones. Selecting only luxurious and first class fabrics is the key to ultimate success especially among style fans who value quality and sophistication.
