Victoria Beckham has unveiled a “modern mix” of silhouettes for her spring/summer 2020 collection.
The British designer presented her latest line as part of London Fashion Week on Sunday, with the likes of U.S. Vogue’s Anna Wintour, Kim Jones, British Vogue’s Edward Enninful, and Helen Mirren all perched on the front row, while her husband David Beckham and their four children were also in the audience.
Regarding the inspiration for the range, Beckham explained in a post on her Instagram page that she was influenced by a variety of sources and was determined for all of the garments to be comfortable for her customers.
“We took a melting pot of references and inspiration from past decades, then looked to our brand DNA and put everything together into a blender, to make a new, modern mix,” she commented, adding: “Lightness, easiness, freedom. Those are the ideas I was thinking of for this collection. There is always a duality in women, moving between different ideas, different moods. I want clothes that move with a woman, that move with her life.”
The show opened with a model wearing a black and white chequered suit, burnt orange shirt, and off-white coat, followed by a number of ensembles featuring neutral separates.
Rather than the figure-hugging dresses Beckham has built up a reputation for in previous years, this time she opted for a flowing silhouette, with standouts including a violet dress with ruffled neckline and floral applique on one shoulder, a lemon-yellow number with plunging neckline, as well as shirts and dresses featuring a scribble print.
Other highlights included ’70s-inspired suits, a bright green number, and a bright purple dress with off-the-shoulder neckline. The show concluded with a trio of swishy black dresses, a sharp white suit, and a beautiful white dress with ruching at the waist.
London Fashion Week continues on Monday with presentations from Roksanda, Erdem, and Burberry.
