Victoria by Victoria Beckham Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW – LFW
Victoria Beckham has long been one of the most respected designers on the celebrity lists and with good reason. The woman is not only married to a star, but has made a place for herself as well, moving away from the girl band persona into the world of fashion that is as full of wonder and crazy fun creativity as the music was. We have been following the gorgeous artist for a long while now, watching what she wears when she is pregnant especially, for there is no way Victoria Beckham would be caught without style. She can look great in a paper bag for all we know, but this princess has yet to be forced into that scenario and we thank the Heavens for that.
While Beckham has had her first line for a long time now, her secondary brand known as Victoria by Victoria Beckham has been growing year on year, giving Beckham the grounds to make fun of herself as well since she’s been growing older with it. It was always the fun collection, but now it has more of a chic and sophisticated cut to it. It is getting stronger by the year as well, which shows just how well the skills and expertise of the woman behind it all is honing of late.
The Victoria by Victoria Beckham fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear collection shown off at the London Fashion Week is quite appealing with its outdoorsy patterns and the intensity of the colors used. There are 21 outfits to the line-up that include everything from bits of colored raffia worked in through flower shapes, black single shoulder mini dresses, spongy 3D patterning, some mint green coloring and so much more. There is even a dress depicting a forest scene, complete with the river, sky and trees, using shades of salmon, mint, blue and grey.
It was the natural world that seems to have inspired the motifs used throughout and that is commendable really, for too few have been veering towards that path these days, designers opting more for culture than what we see all around us within our environment. However, the colors are far from the natural we see otherwise, bringing us the artificial hues that we might have forgotten about as well, most particularly that mint.
There was a florescent pink coat to be found in the line-up, some interesting purples and orange looks with some really artificial peach, almost looking like a colored energy drink or Cool-Aid refresher. There is even a teal shearling jacket lined with mint colored fur that we are dying to get our hands on. There was even some denim included, in the form of a sleeveless dress that depicts a forest scene, appearing on pretty skirts and navy blue paneled jeans as well.
