Victoria Beckham S/S 2020 London Fashion Week Women’s

Victoria Beckham S/S 2020 London Fashion Week Women’s

Mood board: ‘What excited me about this collection is the strange mix of colours, which is something we touched on last season but has really now become part of the DNA of Victoria Beckham,’ said the designer backstage. A riot of colour cavorted down her S/S 2020 catwalk at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in Westminster, from spearmint to violet, candyfloss to caramel. Silhouettes were presented in contrast, from sleek bourgeois tailoring – like houndstooth suits with a trenchcoat thrown atop and slashed knee length skirts with chain belts – to easy, loose dresses with romantic ruffles, corsage details and a daring amount of décolleté. ‘There is a strangeness to the colours that really works,’ Beckham added. ‘A lot of people are afraid of those tones.’

Best in show: Beckham celebrated her 10th anniversary last season (A/W 2019 also marked the launch of her YouTube channel, S/S 2020 aligns with the anticipated release of her beauty line). At its launch a decade ago, Beckham’s brand was synonymous with slinky, skintight dresses. For spring, the silhouette skimming silhouettes marked a new seductive nonchalance. ‘They’re sexy without being tight and constricting,’ she said. ‘The ruffles on the dresses dance around girls’ bodies and are so light.’

Finishing touches: An abstract scribble print emphasised the ease behind the collection, corsages had a splash of 1970s romanticism, and suede Mary Janes were imagined in Beckham’s bold colour palette. §
