On Wednesday I also saw Victoria Beckham’s Fall 2011 dress, denim and sunglasses collection during the press day.
Victoria’s Fall 2010 is still my favourite collection of the six she’s produced so far, but this Fall 2011 collection runs a very close second.
I loved the loose silhouettes which makes many of the pieces more wearable for those – like me – who don’t attend fabulous cocktail parties every week.
If I’m going to spend money a VB look I would like to wear it more than once, and this collection will allow me to do that.
I loved the mixing of rich colours from the mustard yellows, burgundy’s, khaki, stone and reds.
From my pictures you will see that a few looks weren’t shown during the presentation like the two tone A-line dress and the black and white embellished gowns.
Those of you – like Katherine Jenkins – who love VBs body conscious dresses, you’ll be pleased to see two classic strapless VB fitted dresses within the mix for Fall. One of the tweed dresses has a beautiful silver metallic finish.
An interesting fact from this collection is that it holds the 100th dress made by VB.
It’s the yellow wrap dress above, which also comes in a khaki colour which I saw on the day. I’m sure many didn’t think VB would have a second season let alone make 100 dresses. But VB is used to proving people wrong.
I don’t think I’ve seen so many sunglasses in one place. Not even in the Sunglasses Hunt.
For a woman who’s hardly seen without sunglasses, it’s not surprising she produced such an extensive collection. New additions include rose gold and platinum shades. The collection also showcased fun colourful frames plus Victoria’s favourite butterfly glasses, which sell out the second they hit Net-A-Porter.
The denim’s have come a long way from their earlier ‘dvb’ days. They came in a variety of colours, lengths and washes with zippers as accents.
Favourites: Cashmere knot fitted dress, Cap sleeve pleat mini dress and the Halterneck pleat skirt dress
