Spice up your life..
Whilst watching Victoria Beckham's Difusion line at NY fashion week (streamed on her site) it appeared to me that Victoria Becham, whilst being a guilty pleasure, has seriously become someone to look to when referencing new seasons. You have to admire someone who dives headfirst in to something as fickle and tight knit as fashion and comes out smelling of gold trimmed military jackets. Victoria's SS12 line showcased clean silhouettes and military inspiration- which is inkeeping with Victoria's brand. There was a definate monochrome feel to the collection, not just with traditional black and white, with navy and tangerine also and it would seem the more relaxed sporty-luxe vibe has finally won her over- Stephen Jones army hats donned the heads of models like Arizona Muse and Shoes by Louboutin complete with spats lined their feet. Softer pallets of pastels and blushed nudes appear for the height of summer with extreme plazzo pants and maxis. Perfectly structured bags and hardwear zips accompany the pieces, which seemed to be a refreshing addition to the otherwise impeccibly minimalistic dresses. The oversized totes make. me. die. So perfectly put together. There is a lot to be said for a designer who you can imagine wearing every single piece of their clothing and Victorias is just that. The runway show was intimate and industrial whilst maintaining an air eclectic chic with outstanding Music by Zombay.
