Victoria Beckham’s latest show introduced the idea of a “modern feminine alphabet”, with a colourful collection that spoke of what women want to wear now.
The designer’s family attended and sat front row – David Beckham arrived holding hands with daughter Harper (who debuted a very chic fringed bob), while Brooklyn was joined by his model girlfriend Hana Cross. Cruz and Romeo sat in between their big brother and little sister. The family took pictures of the show looks as they hit the catwalk.
For autumn/winter 2019, Beckham stayed to her signature silhouettes – wide-leg trousers, midi dresses and skirts and roll necks – but added a sense of softness. As ever with Beckham, these were clothes you could imagine wearing immediately.
“She’s proper, but definitely not prim,” said Beckham of her AW19 woman in the show notes. “You can feel a sense of life through the clothes she wears.”
The vibrant colour palette spanned lipstick red and absinthe green, along with lilacs, dusty ink and pale teal. Texture was also key, with tweeds, wools and silks artfully mismatched. Beckham also took inspiration from the 70s, most specifically in a chain pattern that adorned the jumper the designer wore to take her bow. What Beckham wears at the show finale tends to sell out fast in stores, so expect those wide-leg trousers and roll-neck to go fast.
