Speaking to The Guardian Beckham said: “I don’t wear a lot of print, so I was excited by working on it. It’s been a tough week but this is a very liberating collection. We took the print, we disrupted it, we chopped it up. It’s flattering, it’s not overly challenging, so I’m absolutely going to be wearing that.”
Victoria Beckham debuted her spring/summer 16 collection at New York Fashion Week on Sunday morning.
Beckham is known for her killer heels and fitted silhouettes, so it was a surprise to see the collection instead had a more laid-back, sportier style, with floral and surfer inspired prints alongside fluid, relaxed shapes paired with platform or flat shoes.
The collection mixed flowing slip dresses with two pieces and cool bomber jackets presented in a care free, effortless way.
The looks were matched with white leather slip-ons or platform open-toed sandals.
Prominent looks were a mixture of plaids, oversized florals and surfing prints, accompanied by midi and long length hemlines with a flowing finish.
Labelled the “half moon” due to the shape, a popular piece from the collection was an oversized crescent shaped bag Beckham debuted on Instagram giving fans who weren’t lucky enough to see the show a sneak peek.
It seems Beckham has taken inspiration from her recent charity work in Africa, stepping away from her usual neat, minimalistic style, using bursts of colour to match the summer-like prints. However, there were neater, all white looks were shown for a less relaxed, polished look.
