Victoria Beckham A/W 2016
Softly boned bustiers, seductive cut-outs and skinny strapped dresses mingle with crisp button down shirts and oversized jackets for a boy meets girl look
Scene setting: Presented under the painted fresco ceilings of what was previously Cipriani Wall Street in the 1921 Cunard Building, Victoria Beckham transformed her regular show venue with tastefully checkered carpet - a precursor to the myriad of graphic prints that would appear in her latest collection.
Sound bite: In a statement included in her show notes, Beckham said, ‘This collection is a statement of the continuing evolution of my personal style and design ethos. I set out to refine key wardrobe pieces in new proportions developed from my signature silhouettes, techniques and fabrications.’
Mood board: The label’s signature long-line silhouette was alive in full force, this time with softly boned bustiers, seductive cut-outs and skinny shoulder-strapped dresses mingling with balloon skirts, crisp button down shirts and oversized jackets for a boy meets girl look. Inspired print combinations, ranging from houndstooth, gingham, diamond jacquard and stripes, also made the collection feel as fresh and desirable as ever
