Victoria Beckham has unveiled her new clothing line, which combines the Victoria Beckham Denim line with the Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection. Inspired by the circus, the designer has infused a heavy dose of fun and color into her pre Spring/Summer 2016 collection, also known as the Resort 2016 collection.
Beckham drew inspiration from the frivolity of the circus and came up with “striking color combinations and graphic motifs of fairground iconography” as her starting point. Shapes are more fluid, with flowing maxis, billowing sleeves, slouchy capes, fluted chiffon skirts and wide-leg culottes, and will be available in stores before Christmas. The classic black she loves is omnipresent but the star has added splashes of color and print to her circus-inspired collection, according to Vogue.
The 41-year-old has brightened things up with splashes of tangerine and eye-catching floral embellishment. The graphic motifs include fairground rides, prints of animals including horses and elephants, and even a few patterns of performers and acrobats.
The new collection is very different from the designer’s trademark monochrome clothing. One floral print was even inspired by her trip to China earlier this year, when Victoria came across a flower that she liked and decided to feature it on one mini dress in yellow, blue and red. Since then, she has designed for every woman, working on fewer loud and bold ensembles, with some pieces focusing on just one color or pattern, or containing very subtle motifs.
Fluidity and loose shapes still remain a priority in her collection. “I’m really excited about this collection -- it’s exactly what I want in my wardrobe. These are things that I want to wear, and I think these are things that my customer wants to wear,” said the former Spice Girl, describing her new circus-inspired numbers.
The mom of four went on to describe her typical client as someone who is a fan of her mainline collection but also has “the other side to her wardrobe.” Beckham said she was proud of the sense of fun and inclusiveness created with the sister brand since its launch. She added that it was now time to take the VVB fans on further adventures -- beyond the parties and cocktails and into the workplace and the everyday.
