At the Victoria Beckham Spring 2012 press day, I was really glad I got to see the mainline collection up close because there were many commercial pieces on display which we didn’t see on the runway.

The dresses, which I’m sure we will see on many celebs, were mostly signature fitted dresses in bright summery colours.

These dresses didn’t have the same edgy downtown feel as the runway collection, so the ladies who lunch uptown will still have a wide range of dresses to choose from when this collection goes on sale.

There were also loose fitted, cocoon shaped dresses in fruity lemon, refreshing aqua blue colour. I also saw a white dress with a printed hemline and pockets (above), plus a similar style dress in the runway orange and navy colours.

I also saw simple gowns with signature exposed zippers and a range of light-weight coats with 3/4 length sleeves.

Victoria Beckham’s denim collection will be expanding into sporty apparel. I loved the mix of colours on the colour-block and striped pieces.

This collection is perfect for the gym or as lounge wear.

Rachel Bilson and Kate Bosworth who enjoy sun 365 days of the year in California will love this collection.
