The feeling of duality truly stood out in Victoria Beckham’s show at London Fashion Week. Extremely dignified and modern young women in proper tailoring making their way through the marble grandeur of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office within Whitehall, the heart of British government accompanied by heavy metal riffing off elegant jazz. At every turn, there was contrast.
In other words, each look played out as a set of dualities. There was a strange color mix, a strong vibrant color selection. All the strange neutrals like pecans and various shades of taupe and tan being punctuated with tiny pops of bright purples and greens, and citrine yellow. All of it felt so fresh because the pairings are a little strange.
There was also a contrast in the vigorous dialogue between the masculine, neutrally toned coats, jackets and pants and flagrantly feminine cascades of ruffles that seems to dance around the women as they walked. This season also showed a look for every mood and a subtle, sophisticated dynamic, compounded in a single outfit. For example, navy pinstripes and ice pink ruffles, or the oversized ivory tux with a spill of matching silk at the throat.
In addition, there was intense colors and bold prints pit against haute bourgeois restraint and discretion, in very British tailoring. This is something that we are all coming to understand as quintessential for the VB brand.
Above all, it felt like a very complete collection. Perhaps, the most complete Beckham has offered to-date since the brand launched almost a decade ago in 2008. Everyone loves a good mix, a juxtaposition, and a fresh vibe and there was plenty of it at Beckham’s show this London Fashion Week.
