London, Feb 13 (ANI): Victoria Beckham, who has proved that she can win over the toughest of fashion critics, delivered a crowd-pleasing military-inspired collection at the New York Fashion Week.
As a well-established member of the industry and a British Fashion Award-winner no less, the 37-year-old former 'Spice Girls' member's latest offering felt like her most confident to date.
Aware that she does not need to reinvent the wheel to be successful, footballer David Beckham's wife delivered a crowd-pleasing collection of form-fitting dresses at her New York Fashion Week Show on Sunday.
Gone were the draped numbers that she favoured during her pregnancy, and the sportswear themes of last season.
Instead, her signature body-conscious shifts, falling demurely just below the knee, lent themselves perfectly to the military look so many other labels have been also championing.
The theme ensured that there was nothing boring or repetitive about the dress shape.
A palette of muddy greens, taupe and the occasional shock of red against a constant of black set the scene, while epaulettes, square pockets and crisp, pointed collars injected precision into each one.
Black leather belts, double-wrapped around waists and harness-detail backs, completed the look.
A utilitarian shade of blue was something of a palate-cleanser that appeared in a couple of garments. A different dress shape, with a shorter, more flared hem, continued the uniform theme, albeit with more of a schoolgirl vibe than a military one.
According to the Daily telegraph, she said that the models' peaked beanies, designed by veteran milliner Stephen Jones, were inspired by the type worn by her husband.
If the tailoring of some of the dresses feels reminiscent of a baseball kit, she explained that it was inspired by the shirts her eldest son Brooklyn favours.
The most significant influence, though, was that of her seven-month-old daughter, Harper, who was honoured in the form of a new handbag.
The only thing that Posh couldn't be imagined embracing next season was the legwear - woolly socks worn with chunky, often flat biker boots by Christian Louboutin.
While the designer could be seen wearing one of the new dresses when she made her appearance at the end, her feet were still clad in those familiar platform courts.
She said in her show notes that she wanted "to explore how clothes can make women feel when they put them on and how to create an emotional attachment between the garment and the wearer."
"The idea of how the body can connect to the clothes through their construction and detail fascinates me," the Daily Mail quoted here as saying.
Her show was a part of New York Fashion Week, which is in its fourth day. Later today will see shows from Diane von Furstenberg and Zac Posen take place, with Carolina Herrera and Donna Karan showing on Monday. (ANI)
