“Delicacy can be strong”, Victoria Beckham stated a day before her New York Fashion Week show. Come springtime, the spice girl wants to see us to spice it up with standout shades of pink, lavender, yellow, lilac and, naturally, black and white. One might say that the new collection is a writeup, a deja-vu of what the designer previously presented. However, she keeps reinventing her signature style and offers recognizable silhouettes with an interesting twist. This collection’s highlights include a pink-on-pink blouse and pants ensemble, a sexy black spaghetti strap midi, and statement checkered coats. Also, pay attention to the two-toned sky high stilettos: contrast-colored pumps in lavender and seafoam.
“Recently I’ve been wearing much more color myself”, Beckham told the Telegraph. “It’s finding a new take on color, and that’s why I love these, whether you call them Play-doh, sherbet, ice cream colors- but they’re not sugary, not too sweet.”

It’s an ode to femininity, to put it in short. It fits perfectly in this New York season, with transparencies and soft colors as key trends. For Spring 2018, Beckham introduced prints- one of which reproduced a moiré pattern and another that was a photo print of assorted striped fabrics. There was a noticeable whimsical charm throughout the show, seen best in the crushed ruffles of Pierrot collars, in a silver anklet dangling a charm, and in the red glitter mules that accompanied salmon-color pants. She put an elegant twist to the pajama look, elevating her matching sets in a subtle but substantial floral jacquard. The biggest surprise in the collection were the almost-to-the-ankle-length skirts tailored at the waist like trousers, paired in many shades with statement leather high-vamp stilettos that punctuated the looks. Victoria Beckham might still be considered a young designer, but she’s certainly the most authoritative young designer out there.
