The look Victoria Beckham has flourished into a fully fledged designer this season. She has now produced six collections, enough for her to develop a credible design signature , and the confidence gained from fashion press approval has allowed her to evolve her signature shape and colour.
Key pieces The ridged Roland Mouret-esque silhouette was referenced in the cap sleeves and close-cut tailoring on some dresses, but there was more fluidity in Beckham’s designs for autumn 11 via super-long maxis, and even cocoon coats. Where there was structure it was bold, such as an asymmetric dress with a fanned Grecian-inspired shoulder.
Commercial appeal Some elegant draping had commercial appeal while sweet skater skirts with roll necks were highly wearable, as was the palette.
