Runway Report: Victoria Beckham Fall 2015

She’s the queen of sleek, so it was little wonder much of her collection was fitted, but Victoria Beckham ventured in a new take on clean this season. With a subtle military theme – two large black buttons on coats and dresses – she delivered a gathering of garments with a barely-there feel. The mannish, charcoal grey, sleeveless high neck, perfectly executed, draped just so on the model’s torso, the beige v-neck dress, offering structure and organic vibes. There were dresses with a little too much material gathering below the waist in a crossover-front that still felt light, just-so. There were swishier dresses that fell with gravity, rather than hanging on tenter hooks, the slinkier numbers, monochrome striped and full of flare. To give the looks her signature VB sturdiness, every model wore calf-length boots, either in black or tan – the kind of footwear you can imagine the designer herself sporting. In the last few looks VB pulled out some reflective silk and chenille, motifs that felt feminine to juxtapose the majority of her strong, unwavering items, and the models’ hair pulled back tight.
