Victoria Beckham Spring Summer 2013 Review

Victoria Beckham is out to prove she can design and run a successful brand. She’s doing that by presenting immaculately tailored clothes and this season is no exception. For spring Beckham introduced separates with silk shirts that were giving me 90’s Tom Ford Gucci flashbacks. Things started out causally with a series of loose fitting blouse/shirt/pant combos then moved on to more structured territory with sharply layered skirts and a beautifully cut boyfriend jacket in vermilion that skimmed the thigh. Beckham then showed her signature body hugging dresses, this time with sexy bra straps on show. All the shoes were flats. There was a derby shoe and a gladiator style. The outer-wear touches and the graphic cut on the final dress shows Beckham is slowly becoming more confident with her design skills. In previous collections all she ever talked about was the construction of her dresses and the thoughtfulness that went in to them which on its own is something to be admired but now that she’s got those solid foundations in place she’s giving herself room to start playing with design. Overall a strong collection.
