Victoria Beckham AW17

Not many women may live like Victoria Beckham but she certainly has sussed out what they want to be wearing right now: a sophisticated wardrobe minus the maintenance. This season she delivered just that – a collection that was high on femininity but fused with menswear-inspired pieces that provided the effortlessness women so envy in a man's wardrobe. On top, pale blue starched shirts were worn buttoned-up under V-neck cashmere jumpers and structured blazers but down below came romantic chiffon midi skirts and chic pleated skirts – just what the fashion crowd wanted to slip into on a cold and wet day in NYC. In a collegiate palette of elegant navy and rich burgundy with the odd shot of dark green and cream, it was befitting winter but a welcome change from basic black.

Curve-shoulder sweaters continue to be a VB mainstay, this time worn with elbow-length leather gloves and structured mini box bags (called the Vanity) to elevate them further. Panelled jersey dresses were, in Beckham's words, "not body-con but conscious of the body". Trousers came wide and relaxed and topped with equally-generous overcoats for a contemporary silhouette.

Even in her shy exit, donning a fluted polo neck with her hair tucked in, the designer was channelling the look of a million women everywhere – high-flying business women, fashion lovers, mums and everyone in between. "These are clothes for reality, and a real woman's life," she said.
