A New Kind of Sexy at Victoria Beckham

A New Kind of Sexy at Victoria Beckham

The evolution of Victoria Beckham's eponymous fashion label coincides with the founder's own perspective on womanhood. "There is always a duality in women, moving between different ideas, different moods," she said in a statement, describing her thinking process this season.

Indeed, what started more than 10 years ago was a design sensibility that echoed Beckham's own signature look in the late aughts: form-fitting, hourglass sheath dresses in solid colors. Since then, the brand has developed gradually by incorporating softer, feminine silhouettes, statement accessories, and exuberant prints, while still remaining utterly wearable for a wide audience of women.

For Spring 2020, Beckham doubled down on notions of lightness, easiness and freedom, concepts most noticeable in floating, soft dresses and romantic ruffled frocks in prints she's never done before. And of course, her four children and husband were all in the front row proudly cheering on mom. Here's everything else you need to know about the collection.

Suit Up

Beckham experimented with masculine, precise tailoring this season. Contrast was a big theme, and she presented these menswear-inspired pieces alongside her feminine, softer looks to create a dual tension throughout the collection.

New Prints

Beckham said that the prints she utilized are unlike anything they've ever done before. Spring elements such as birds, branches and flowers pop against the dark background and neutral palettes.

Floaty Dresses

This season's dress silhouette is a floating, roomy shape that's suspended from the body with tiny straps. The asymmetrical shapes and loose shapes conjure a new kind of sexy for the brand, in which the women feel comfortable and sensual underneath these feminine frocks.

Dancing Ruffles

Long, flowy dresses with no waist definition in bright greens, whites and tans are rendered in strategically placed ruffles that dance as you walk. Beckham's focus on "ease" this season in most evident in these languid frocks.

Neck Please

Whether it was long, fluid scarves or fitted turtleneck detailing, '70s references played a big part in this collection thanks to various neck styling elements.
