Graceful girls get ready-to-party in deconstructed silhouettes, stripes and swinging hems
While the soundtrack, Chinawoman’s “Party Girl”, suggested that the VB girl is a wild one – you wouldn’t be able to tell at first glance. As always, she was very polished, sophisticated, and well… very Victoria Beckham. The song’s lyrics summed up the designer’s approach to the ready-to-party look: “can’t you see I’m a natural?”
The black and white stripes:
A palette of blacks, navys and winter whites – with a pop of bright orange – decorated high-necked frocks and slim-fit tailored coats adorned with big buttons. Cosy, twisted knits were paired with cropped trousers and wrap skirts. Evidence of Beckham designing with a party in mind was shown in the subtle swinging movement of the skirts’ asymmetrical hemlines. The bold black and white striped frock and matching skirt also felt adventurous in comparison to the majority of monochrome looks. This was never going to be your average party though, right?
While discussing her AW15 pieces, Beckham said: “I began with the dress and looked at evolving and transitioning it.” Specifically, the designer cited a focus on deconstructionism and payed close attention to fabrics, seams and hemlines – creating the silhouettes that moved effortlessly down the runway.
