London, UK – 18th February 2019.
Yesterday, Victoria Beckham launched her Autumn Winter 2019 collection at Tate Britain as a part of London Fashion Week.
Victoria says: “For Autumn Winter 2019 I have been thinking about what women want, about modern femininity and about how to curate those ideas into a collection for today.
Our woman tells a story through each of the looks. She embraces our signature silhouettes, both fitted and softer, clothes that are wearable but still have the ability to let us dream. There’s almost a cinematic mood, an elevation, a character embedded within a narrative. She’s proper but she’s definitely not prim. You can feel a sense of her life through the clothes that she wears.
There’s lots of colour, lots of pattern. The palette is strong, with jolts of absinthe and lipstick red alongside waxy colours, lilac, dusty pink, pale teal. Texture abounds in tweeds, wools and silks – matched and mismatched. Boots are high-heeled, to the knee or thigh, closed or open toed. A ‘70’s archive-inspired chain pattern features both literally and in the abstract. And throughout, there is a celebration of the inherent femininity of dresses – ideas of their past, and proposals for the future.
There are touches of retro, pinches of the ‘70’s. Yet it’s all brought together into something encapsulating what we call the modern feminine alphabet. It’s a vocabulary of dressing for now.”
