Shot outdoors in the sumptuous topiary- and-statuary-laden grounds of Chiswick House, one of the classical delights of west London, the Victoria Beckham Resort 2020 collection was classic featuring a combination of what she wants to wear herself and the response from customers.
“For pre-spring 2020 I wanted to continue building off the notion of curating a sophisticated wardrobe for women possessing a sense of grown-up playfulness,” said Beckham.
For Resort, Beckham carried on from her applauded Fall show with A-line midis, belted coats, silk dresses, leg-elongating trousers, tuckable shirts and form-fitting sweaters.
The color palette was unexpected with rich kelly green and electric turquoise sitting alongside equally charged hues, lipstick red, zesty tangerine, and titan white. Tweeds are revisited for the season on midi skirting, shrunken blazers and scarf-silhouetted dresses. Abstract, geometric patterns bring in graphic pop-art cues which are infused with a touch of the traditional through equestrian motifs. Throughout, there is a joyfulness rooted in the eclectic mashup.
While there are allusions to the louche attitude and energy of the 1970s, it’s brought together into my modern feminine alphabet of dressing for now through lightness and accessibility.
