Victoria BeckhamSpring Summer 2015 New York

Runway Review
9/7/2014 Faith Cummings/fashionwirepress.com

Though Victoria Beckham just debuted her Spring 2015 collection, her eponymous label is having a pretty big moment in real time. The brand is opening its first store on London's Dover Street this month, coinciding with London Fashion Week, as well as having opened a showroom and office in the Big Apple. Her latest lineup felt markedly Manhattan, with a subdued palette (save for a splash of pink floral), clean lines, and an undeniable spirit of confidence and power.

Long and easy beige coats were layered over relaxed white silk dresses, while black strappy wedges and pointed-toe ankle-length boots anchored the looks in even more effortlessness. Like so many other lineups this season, stripes injected a sense of classic Americana on a long-sleeve shift, belted trench, simple knee-length skirts, and a fitted long-sleeve knit maxi dress that was as cozy as Beckham intended to get.

A utilitarian-inspired leather belt accented most of the looks including an off-the-shoulder dress made even more functional with oversized cargo pockets, a tunic with the same compartments perfect for wear with both destructed denim or office-ready trousers, a retro-inspired coat that will work seamlessly for the Winter to Spring transition, and a high-waist skirt with a front slit for a sultry sliver of leg.

Florals were an unexpected yet jovial vignette splattered across on-trend pairs of culottes, a hard-to-miss suit, and a collared dress that felt just a bit Mod: flower power indeed. Beckham is the best brand ambassador and is rarely seen in prints, but her being snapped in these pieces would certainly put a smile on the faces of many in the industry.

Minimalism was the takeaway here with designs that would have an immediate place in the modern-day woman's wardrobe. No look felt too formal and though the brand is high-fashion and luxury to the bone, everything felt accessible - fast fashion brands will be imitating these looks in 3...2...1...
