Proving she is not just a one off wonder in the fashion industry, Victoria Beckham released details of her new Spring & Summer ’14 collection today, and she has come back with some stunningly simple yet complex designs. Featuring some wonderfully creative new cuts, gorgeous prints and beautifully flattering silhouettes, we have to say we are really impressed with how Victoria continues to come up with innovative and fresh ideas, season after season.
Her new collection includes several different styles of dress, from midi to T-shirt minis, and diverse fabrics such as silk and crepe de chine. There are fitted dresses, similar to the bodycon frocks she showcased in her first two collections, dresses featuring dropped waists, striking flared skirt dresses and floating midis. We particularly love the assortment of patterns, from simple colour blocking to intricate checks and bold flower designs. Our only concern is that the oversized blanket dress is back, albeit in different colours, we still don’t get how this design made it into Victoria’s winter season, let alone make a come back for spring and summer.
Despite this, we are positively glowing about all the others and here are our favourites.
Top of our wish list is this silk tee mini dress in yellow checker print, and costing £635.00. The dress is designed to look like a two-piece of a skirt and top, and is constructed using a super soft jacquard cotton. We are in love with the pink checked print skirt, which contrasts beautifully with the geometric kaleidoscope pattern. And it’s available in two colour combinations.
Next up is this full skirt dress in printed cotton featuring a fabulously over the top skirt. The attention to detail on this dress is spot on, and really flattering with full-length sleeves and a fitted bodice perfectly complimenting the exaggerated skirt. Priced at £775.00, expect to see this on celebrities here and across the pond.
This bonded flower tunic is only available in monochrome but all the attention is on the detail. With 3D flower embellishment, there are contrasting silk cuffs on the raglan sleeves, and the laser cut floral design really stands out on this tunic shaped dress costing £620.00.
A perfect dress for spring and summer, which features a colour blocking pleats in gorgeous sherbet pastels. The hand-pleated panels are crafted using individual coloured silk panels that hang from the waistband. Priced at £1150.00.
This pleated panel midi is similar to the above dress in style and cut and is wonderfully flattering with a high neck and nipped in at the bust and waist. The tangerine shades are complimented with the soft salmon hues, and the delicate silk is the perfect fabric to bring this frock together. Priced at £795.00.
A different and more relaxed cut to this v-neck dropped waist dress at £625.00. Crafted from crepe de chine and coloured in a pale yellow, this features a dropped waist and a loose v-neck. The finishing touches include a black trim on the tee shirt sleeves.
