Runway Report: Victoria Beckham SS19

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the brand Victoria Beckham, Beckham took the show home and showcased her iconic collection next door to her Dover Street store, in London. Filling up the gallery space with her monochrome signature, feminine wearability, and clean lines, Victoria turned to art as her inspiration for her Summer range.

“I stumbled upon a few pieces of her work,” Beckham commented when asked about her artist muse, Nicola Tyson. It was the painters, Blue Knickers piece from 2008 that the Brit drew her palette from, and what a palatable palette it was. It was reminiscent of an artist’s hand plate, primary colors, mixed together in the middle to create unique hues. There was a rich equestrian green, royal blue, monarch red, proud whites and strong blacks.

A steel grey and red-fleck long boyfriend blazer was styled with a white tee, and an iridescent, indigo, green and white tulle pleated skirt. The perfect ensemble for a day in town, while the asymmetrical lace-underlay almond hued camisole with pleat-wrap front and tomato piping would make for a beautiful day-to-night top. Victoria chose to close her show with a strong, androgynous silhouette, that felt like it had plucked out of her own wardrobe. A navy, long a-lined trench coat, with matching wide-leg trousers and the high-neck laced tee was very much a crowd pleaser, and an outfit we could wear to channel our inner Beckham – after all, her clothing is meant to empower you to be great, and who is greater than she.
