Yesterday, in an intimate drawing room on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Victoria Beckham presented her final Fall/Winter 2018 collection during New York Fashion Week. After 10 successful years showing in the states, the British designer has decided to take her collections across the pond to join the London Fashion Week roster starting next season.
Beckham’s trendy, yet almost solemn, designs are exactly what we would like to be stepping out in as the warmth of summer merges into the fall/winter season. There were sumptuous belted coats that envelope the body, providing the perfect canvas for layering. Shades of grey and steel blue cast a spell for colder weather and longer nights. The genius of Beckham’s designs are that they are never overworked. Everything she puts out has an effortless ease about it, creating a wardrobe for the modern woman that is equal parts sexy and functional.
The moody color palette was broken in places with vibrant feather prints, colorful oversized shoulder bags with their gaping mouths hanging open, and the current on-trend use of animal print (already being seen in shows throughout NYFW).
As our eyes worked their way down the models’ ensembles, women’s feet around the world could be heard cheering over the sweet relief that comes with Beckham’s stylish, but oh-so-comfy looking flats with oversized buckles that will have you making a statement without breaking leg.
It was a very successful showing for the radiant 43-year-old former Spice Girl and mother of four. It was also an emotional one as the usually steel faced Beckham broke from character in a not often seen display of public affection with her family, ending her grand event by giving her husband and children (3 out of the 4 kids were seen in appearance) each a kiss and hug after accepting her applause from the crowd. This September will be the label’s 10th anniversary from its launch, and suffice it to say, Victoria Beckham has made quite the name for herself in the fashion industry the last decade, and she has a lot of celebration heading her way.
