Victoria Beckham A/W 2017
The designer imagines a sculptural and graphic collection inspired by the painter Paul Nash
Mood board: A visit to the Tate Britain to see an exhibition by the artist Paul Nash inspired the graphic prints that appeared on several dresses. The tailored blazers paired with flowing, billowy skirts made for a balance of masculine and feminine, in a sense empowering the female form.
Best in show: Victoria Beckham’s entire collection looked comfortabl yet chic, but the graphic abstract print inspired by Nash on a long-sleeved, navy dress made for a striking, visual work of art. The minimal wool coats with a curved, sculptural sleeve made for a fresh approach to a classic wardrobe staple.
Finishing touches: A rectangle of fabric topped with two buttons, wrapped just below the elbow gave a plaid blazer a little extra depth at the sleeves. Chic, slouchy leather gloves seamlessly completed a number of the looks, like on a short-sleeved navy dress with translucent sleeves, and a loose suit.
