Victoria, Victoria Beckham Autumn/Winter 2018

From her music career in the ‘90s, Victoria Beckham was (/is/always will be) an “It girl” on the fashion scene; now, her Autumn/Winter 2018 collection makes the “VVB girl” (the personification of her label Victoria, Victoria Beckham) accessible to us.  The collection is a jumble of themes, all of which could stand on their own as a line’s primary focus.  But in this recent collection, Beckham manages to balance them all so that in conjunction, they create a certain je ne sais quoi — the trademark of an “It girl.”   

 

 

Who is the VVB girl?  Well this season, she “immerses herself in the subculture scene of Downtown 1980s New York, riffing on the urban energy of an era where the worlds of fashion, film, photography, painting, punk, graffiti and hip-hop collided.”  The official press release goes on to describe masculine, simple, and even cowgirl-esque themes in the collection.  But at its core, it embodies a “youthful and irreverent attitude.”

 

 

I’m always fascinated by designers that manage to wrangle juxtaposing concepts into a cohesive collection.  It is a courageous endeavor and when successful, a powerful one.  Victoria Beckham’s Victoria, Victoria Beckham Autumn/Winter collection stood out this season as one that did just that.  It focuses largely on bold motifs of the ‘80s, but molds them for modern consumption without sacrificing the era’s integrity.  If this collection is any indication of what’s to come, Beckham won’t be giving up her “It girl” status anytime soon.
