Victoria Beckham’s triumphant return to London is more than worth the wait.
Victoria Beckham wooed London Fashion Week with aplomb this morning, as she returned to the capital to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her self-named brand.
Beckham’s first London show was live-streamed on the billboards at Piccadilly Circus from a gallery in nearby Mayfair.
The designer’s entire family turned out for the event, along with models Stella Tennant, Edie Campbell and Liya Kebede on the catwalk.
Beckham admitted to reporters afterwards that planning the homecoming had been “stressful” but declared herself “excited” to be back on UK turf after choosing New York Fashion Week as her showcase for the past decade.
The ready-to-wear collection is an ode to the 21st Century woman; “not just the Victoria Beckham woman, but all women”.
In meeting this brief, Beckham created a stylish and practical edit featuring everything from flattering cape-style jackets to free-fitting dresses and a statement white suit (as modelled by Tennant).
Bold, structural outlines and vibrant pops of colour added an extra touch of dynamism.
Stylist’s fashion director Arabella Green, watching the show, was stuck by the great tailoring, as well as a distinct retro edge.
“It’s great to have Victoria Beckham back in London for the season,” she says. “I noticed a nod to the early 90s with both the music and the feel of the collection.
“There was lots of layering, low-slung trousers, knit dresses and slips. It was chic, cool and very Victoria Beckham.”
