One word seemed to emerge from Victoria Beckham’s Fall/Winter fashion show, unveiled during New York Fashion Week. “Bounce”, said the British designer, but do it the slightest and classiest way. Indeed, that’s what it takes to make of an oxymoron out of a collection.
When one model walked along the catwalk with daydream skirts above the knee, the following set was made of evening black and white maxi dresses. Whilst one was wearing a light opened pale ensemble, therefore the following model was all about sombre long-sleeved turtlenecks or avant-garde oversized and minimalistic coats. Playing with opposites fabrics and contrary silhouettes, Beckham made of her Fall/Winter fashion show a playground where a yellow mustard can easily consort a long greyish tailored coat.
With her “back to basics” mind-set, Beckham tries to to find the right balance between high-class minimalism and the precise minutiae of pretty large buttons. And halfway between deep dark shades and pastel clear colors, the Fall/Winter 2015 fashion show eventually illustrates Beckham’s desire to design the modern elegant woman. Mission accomplished, Victoria.
