The notion that delicacy can be strong rang about the magnificent Cunard Line Building venue ahead of Victoria Beckham’s Spring/Summer 2018 runway presentation, the designer having stated the fact in her show notes. Low and behold, she’d go onto prove it, the first look – a buttoned-up, oversized utility shirt tucked into a sheer, dusty pink stretch-organza pencil skirt, finished with lilac heels – exiting to the sudden guitar shrill of The White Stripes Icky Thump.
"Soft, strong, honest, easy – this collection reflects the many powers of femininity," Beckham shared, alluding to an evolution of her long-standing commitment to making clothes she wants to wear. For hers is naturally the wardrobe of a multi-faceted woman, and with business meeting-ready tailoring (boxy blazers balanced by slim trousers), side-pleated midi skirts perfect for parents evening, desk-to-drinks dresses as well as those that deserve to be reserved for the weekend (little red dress in light-as-a-feather silk and plunging neckline, we’re looking at you), Beckham affirmed she’s her own best muse.
Colour felt more experimentational, though, with aqua, lilac and terracotta joining the roster. And glitter, too, via the drool-worthy Dorothy heels and Harper slippers – after all, however many sides you may have, there’s no place like home.
