Victoria Beckham Fall 2009
Victoria Beckham's Fall 2009 collection has been revealed on WWD.com.
As I have a subscription to the online fashion magazine site, I am able to bring you the pictures and the interview.
View the collection above and let me know your favourites. Mine are 5, 9, 11, 17, 18, 22.
This is a nice collection, but comparing the two, I much preferred the first one. That was more classic Victoria.
I love the use of more colours in this collection though.
Update: Style.com has posted the whole collection with one more than WWD.com, this new one is 24.
Here is her cute interview:
"Madonna — you can’t do better than that!" Victoria Beckham joked when asked to identify her emerging customer base. (An early group of her spring dresses hit Bergdorf Goodman and Selfridges weeks ago.) She was referring to the current W photo shoot in which Madonna makes steamy stuff of one look.
In fact, Beckham has a broader base in mind. Though too early to tell a mere two collections into her second career, judging from the controlled lineup she showed on Sunday, it seems that she may indeed be no lightweight. (Figuratively, that is. Formerly Posh is still a slip of a girl.) Beckham’s focus remains on curvy, sensual dresses that won’t date easily. Such was her launch raison d’être, which now, one very bizarre season later, seems ever so savvy. For fall, she added shorter, more relaxed looks and conversely, more demonstrative flourishes such as a glam fold to the bodice of a cocktail dress inspired by her wedding gown. There were also “capes,” actually swing-back affairs with zip-up sleeves, and sultry evening gowns — some with long sleeves! — with a Forties siren feel. As for helping a gal suck it all in, Beckham removed the inner “obi” construction featured in numerous spring designs, in favor of offering a single, separate corset, retailing for $590. "That helps keep the price of the dresses down," she said. Might it also signal an innerwear collection in the near feature? "Why," Beckham mused, "that’s a very good idea."
