Striking Colours and Feminine Silhouettes
The Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 collection featured an important landmark for Victoria Beckham and her namesake fashion label – the 100th dress she has designed, which was a fitted saffron dress with the signature Victoria Beckham exposed zip snaking an elegant path down the spine. The collection was a departure from Victoria’s usual bodycon designs, with the lady herself explaining “As I’ve become more confident in my own skin, I realised I wanted to give women the freedom to be more comfortable” – the silhouette for winter 2011-2012 was looser and slightly more relaxed than previous collections, yet maintained a certain structural elements and femininity.
The collection was mostly made up of an elegant plethora of dresses in a range of vibrant block colours – saffron, sunflower yellow, scarlet, Bordeaux, taupe, grey and teal. Coming in a variety of lengths and silhouettes, stand out dresses included a tight to the hip magenta gown with a pleated floor length A-line skirt; a slim-line kimono-influenced dress in striking sunflower; a Bordeaux tube dress with high neck and asymmetric shoulder detail; a beautiful jacquard cocoon dress; and a pleated floor-length scale print number with bandage mid-section.
The collection also featured an impressive selection of separates and outerwear, including a chic taupe mac with interesting fold over detail and a black coat with dropped waist and pleated skirt. The garments were accessorised with knee-high boots and shoes, designed in collaboration with Christian Louboutin an a smattering of stunning over-sized leather bags and clutches.
With the effortless chic of her collection – produced in partnership with showbiz entrepreneur, Simon Fuller – it isn’t hard to see why her Victoria’s designs have become a firm favourite of the Hollywood elite, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Blake Lively, Drew Barrymore, Elle Macpherson and Trudie Styler.
So without further ado, we present the Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 collection from Victoria Beckham…Enjoy!
