Victoria Beckham’s clothes at London Fashion Week are the new poster of freedom and lightness formed Spring Summer 2020
There was Victoria Beckham’s family in full on the front row of the fashion show of the designer’s PE 2020 collection: Brooklyn (20 years), Romeo (17), Cruz (14) and little Harper (8), on the lap of dad David and as always sitting next to Anna Wintour.
For the brand launched in 2008 this is the third fashion show in Victoria’s hometown, which previously presented its collections in New York.
Last Saturday, the first Victoria Beckham Beauty make-up collection was also launched.
We have a new (and definitive) obsession: it’s the Victoria Beckham dresses from the Spring Summer 2020 collection that have walked the runway at London Fashion Week and will illuminate the trends of the coming season. We are not talking about a single dress, but of all the clothes – from the first to the last – that gradually materialized on the models: with their quick pace they entered the large hall of the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, sparking each time looks of admiration and Consents. And a wooow effect, which with a very quick tam tam has spread from the location of the fashion show to the feeds and stories of Instagram.
A fashion electrocution that says a lot about the perfection of this collection and the stylistic maturity of Victoria Beckham, who from that distant 2008 has come a long way, conquering the credibility and authority that few would have imagined could have imagined reach the former Posh Spice. And instead hers is a hugely won bet, applauded and supported by Anna Wintour in front row as a family next to little Harper and all the inseparable Beckham crew! And these dresses are the new must have clothes that we would like to wear already now.
Her first purple dress, followed by a wonderful bright green floating dress, and then by the wide yellow petticoat, and then again by a series of black or black dresses, feminine and delicate, are the jackpot that each of us would like to take home in our own Wardrobe.
So if his trouser suits, for this Spring Summer 2020 collection, have made a twist in the Seventies confirming once again must have, it is the highly sought-after use of color – so much to remind us almost of the chromatic lyricism of Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino – to create an incredible glance (and an inevitable lightning strike) that puts on top of all the wishlists of next season these floated dresses in color block and the entire collection.
“Lightness, ease, freedom. These were the ideas I was thinking about for this collection. They’re contemporary, dynamic women on the move,” says Victoria Beckham. A movement that is emphasized by the silhouettes of wide dresses that do not mark the waist, descend soft and take volume as the air makes them sway free. The Victoria Beckham Spring Summer 2020 collection thus becomes a modern and contemporary mix that combines the masculine and precise tailoring of jackets and trousers with the soft part of the dresses that “emancipate” the body from any compulsion whatsoever, a fusion perfect between the brand’s DNA, the 70s references and the sophisticated aesthetic of VB that has always loved contrasts.
And it is not only the solid clothing palette that makes them safe must-haves, but also the delicate games of ruffles and ruffles, sewn in a shaft, vertically, as profiles of deep V-necks or resting on the geometric edges of the spaghetti strap petticoat creating almost an e “I’m not going to do that,” he said. And then there are the silk models printed with floral patterns from the 70s flair or italic lettering. They are super feminine and romantic dresses, sexy but delicate, representing an unusual and innovative aesthetic compared to the classic silhouettes plated VB and that tell the feeling of safety and freedom of the woman who wears them. Chapeau Victoria, you’re right!
