Victoria Beckham has explored the tension between “refinement and rebellion” for her fall/winter 2020 collection.
The British designer unveiled her latest line at The Banqueting House as part of London Fashion Week on Sunday, with the presentation attracting the likes of Anna Wintour, Samantha Ronson, Alexa Chung, Karen Elson, and Sinead Burke, as well as Victoria’s husband David Beckham and their four children.
Regarding her inspiration for the range, the fashion star explained that she wanted to add a bit of edge to her go-to feminine silhouettes.
“This season, I was thinking about the tension between refinement and rebellion. I was inspired by different ideas of women – different characters, different moments, and different attitudes – but with no restrictions. The overriding sentiment was that we don’t have to follow the rules. We can follow our instincts. Be spirited,” she wrote in the show notes. “The silhouette has evolved with a newness, a freshness. Shorter abbreviated proportions feel different and right for now. I wanted to explore how to honour tradition but challenge convention. To be subversive, yet still sophisticated. The collection is about staying true to ourselves and our woman, but still surprising her, and us. Twisting our codes. This is what I call my gentle rebellion.”
To open, a model walked the runway in a black velvet dress with plunging neckline and black leather boots. The outfit was given a touch of sparkle via the addition of crystal drop earrings.
A number of black ensembles followed, many of which were accessorised with belts featuring interlocking hand designs.
Victoria also introduced a line-up of plaid separates, brightly coloured knitwear, and cosy coats, before concluding the show by having models parade the runway in winter-ready dresses with voluminous sleeves.
