Never for a moment have I ever doubt that Victoria Beckham will rise as a positive force in fashion industry. A very successful, serious fashion icon and creator. No, not because of her massive fortune that can support her hobby (look at those heirs), but instead, looking at her growth through the years, one cannot deny she is dead serious, and somehow very talented in fashion.
Since the start of brand Victoria Beckham in 2011, Victoria has been creating impressive collection season after season, maturing from one stage to another. Everyone knows Victoria Beckham is a smart woman in business; building her way through whatever industry she sets foot on. So you know she ain’t going to just sell her name to some dodgy companies and make ugly bags out of it. Look at her track record and you know, she is going to knock you out of the door with her work. (Not so sure for the singing part)
She was able to evolve through her fashion how-to over the years, and emerged as one of the most well-dressed women of our time. Classy and edgy. This smart lady has been building her network and learning from the masters, for example: looping in Manolo Blahnik to collaborate on footwear for her collections.
Victoria Beckham FW2014 showed at New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week just 10 days ago, and it was a great show of class. Pure British class of Victoria Beckham. She has been consistent in creating clothes within the classy style and sharp edge tailoring, bringing simplicity through quality.
Staying true to her love of mono-tone, calf length skirts, and well-cut structural looks, the FW14 collection is minimalist at its best. Natural faces with small leather goods along with Manolo’s creation. All perfectly balanced without losing the feminine touch that is unique to brand Victoria Beckham, and the creator herself.
As Mark Holgate wrote on Vogue.com:
“Brand Victoria Beckham has become rather brilliant at giving us clothes able to do that trickiest of things, which is this: combining conceptual design and a cool attitude, yet are always supremely wearable. Clothes that are not only on the money, but look the money.”
How true. Clothes that are not only on the money, but look the money. Chances are if you are over 25 years old with some sort of class in dressing, you will pick straight up from Victoria Beckham line over some funky Rock Is Not Dead sequined t-shirts, if they costs the same. Even if you are a bold dresser, there is always a need to have classic pieces, for layering, or for emergency. A piece of investment, that is what Victoria set out to create. Clothes she wears and will appeal to other women. Clothes with style and enhance silhouette with feminism touch.
The best part is, if brand Victoria Beckham is not designed and named after Victoria Beckham, I bet the classy fashionistas will buy and love the pieces from the label regardless. That is the real meaning of true, good fashion.
Indeed, I’m a fan of brand Victoria Beckham.
