She herself is pure sartorial perfection

Another fashion week and another Victoria Beckham showcase. She herself is pure sartorial perfection so we expect nothing less from her collections. Fortunately from a retailer’s perspective ‘perfection’ sells, or at least the desire to be anywhere near as polished and put together as VB herself.
The latest offering for Spring, Summer 14 was a mix of Victoria’s signature fitted style and an unexpected injection of volume and proportions.The palette was minimal and began with monochrome separates which bled into pastel blue, fuchsia pink and maroon which kept a sharp edge for season. 

Trousers feature heavily in the collection mainly cut-off style with luxurious blouses under cropped jumpers and cocoon jackets. Her blouse and ruffled skirt combinations gave femininity to an otherwise masculine offering. Accessories were boxy and neutral not to take away from the polished simplistic collection. I enjoyed her black on black and white on white pairing. I wonder if her day at Wimbledon this year was of any influence. The simplicity of her designs and beautiful styling acts as great inspiration for high street retailers to emulate. The collection doesn’t restrict on age or size as there is something that could be adapted for most women.
