Dispatches from New York: Victoria Beckham Making her customers happy
By Rebecca Lowthorpe Posted 15 Sun February
You’ve got to hand it to Victoria Beckham. All she wants to do is make her customers happy by providing wardrobe solutions for busy lives. It’s with this mantra in mind that she designed her latest autumn/winter 2015 collection, which had all the VB hallmarks that have come to personify her brand: sophisticated, uncomplicated, super-flattering, fashion-relevant clothes. In short, VB nailed what she said she was going to do on the tin: make runway clothes that could walk straight off the catwalk and into your closet.
‘The runway looks are the first things to go in the store,’ she explained backstage, driving home the point by looking down at her own outfit. ‘I just grabbed this and threw it on this morning,’ she said of the pieces she was wearing: an oversized black wool sweater and slim long black skirt with her trademark heels.

Victoria Beckham A/W 15
Victoria Beckham’s signature dress grows up and loosens up for A/W 15
By Avril Mair 15 February 2015
“I wanted to start with the dress,” said Victoria Beckham, surrounded by family backstage after presenting her A/W 15 show in New York. It’s been a career-changing few months for the designer, who won Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards in December shortly after opening her first stand-alone store, and she seems to have found the confidence to feel completely comfortable in asserting her vision. So that dress – the foundation of her collection, once form-fitting and primary-coloured – is now navy, black or cream and cut to the calf in thick felted wool or a nubbly knit. Like her, it’s loosened up – and is all the better for it. There’s no doubt that being hands on in her store has given Victoria an insight into what her customer wants and it’s increasingly sophisticated; the dresses were accompanied by some brilliant coats, swooping round the body and wrapped at the waist with a bow, or cut wide and boxy then cropped mid-thigh, worn with a chunky boot and bare legs. Corduroy culottes and thick jumpers were also completely convincing. Though in the end it might have been more about the coat than the dress – there’s good reason to consider Victoria Beckham as the new go-to coat brand – this was a cool, confident collection that will look wonderful instore. Though the way things are going, it won’t stay there for long.

Victoria Beckham unveils sexier collection in New York
Designer plays with twists, volume and asymmetry to bring a much less uptight look to the catwalk
Victoria Beckham’s autumn 2015 New York fashion week collection officially began at 10am on Sunday morning inside Cipriani’s in downtown Manhattan. Mint teas on silver trays greeted guests escaping the frigidly cold minus nine degree celsius outside, and family Beckham – coiffed and in monochrome – snapped selfies on the front row.
But, in reality, the show started a few days earlier when the designer was photographed by paparazzi at JFK airport slinking through the arrivals lounge wearing camel trousers with a belted side detail and a leopard holdall. A dog whistle to those looking for early clues as to her collection.
Beckham is no fool. She has long since worked out how to utilise that particular privacy intrusion in the lead up to fashion week. So inextricably linked is the personal style of the industry’s most notable musician-turned-designer and her catwalk designs, that these pictures act as the unofficial preamble to the show. Backstage after Sunday’s show, between soliciting reviews from her three-year-old daughter Harper, Beckham reiterated that it was so important for her clothes to be flattering so that they could go “straight from the catwalk on to one of my ladies” Or indeed (as went unsaid) herself.

Victoria Beckham Makes it Sexy
“I’m ready to get sexy dresses back on!”, said Victoria Beckham, although she took her bow at the end of the show covered up (albeit with a flirty drape at the hip of the skirt).
But bringing back sexy – a slither of flesh at the waist or a jigsaw of fabrics forming five shades of black – was only a sidebar to the main story: Victoria Beckham has made it as a designer.
I can’t think of another celebrity who has been willing and able to create a unique style. For Victoria, it is of course personal: tailoring and incisive cutting to make her kind of coat twirling a compass around shoulders and waist.
Then are her accent colours – mustard for a pair of culottes or a tailored coat – and also her own tidy way of playing with deconstruction so that the white satin dress at the close of the show was all flowery bows undone to show flashes of flesh.

For Victoria Beckham, it all started with a dress. You know the one: sexy yet strict hourglass fit, suggestive zip up the back, otherwise covered up. In the years since she launched her namesake label, she has explored other avenues. Last season found her in very foreign territory; the boxy shapes of her masculine, military-influenced jackets didn’t necessarily feel true to the VB brand. So she went back to the beginning for Fall ’15. Said Beckham, “We started with dresses; we listened to what people said.

Victoria Beckham knows what women want for autumn/winter 15
The British designer gives i-D the low-down on women, trends, and yes, her family, backstage after her stunning autumn collection.
Let’s get it out of the way: the entire Beckham clan looked impeccable this morning at the Victoria Beckham autumn/winter 15 show, with David and the boys in dark suits, Harper in a very Victoria black dress with white cuffs, and Posh herself in a cropped black top and skirt from the collection. “I love having them here, they’re so supportive of what I do,” said the designer after the show. “We all support each other. I stand on a football pitch, freezing cold for hours on end watching the boys. I go to watch Harper dance, and they look forward to coming to New York to see my show.”
As do many of the editors who braved this morning’s sub-zero weather to take in the gorgeously wearable, modern outing. From perfectly structured wool coats cut close to the body, to conservatively sexy apron dresses, the pieces felt classic without being boring (no small feat). “I don’t really follow trends,” said Victoria, and thank goodness for that. Black mock-necks and mid-calf skirts could go straight off the runway into a woman’s everyday wardrobe, which is definitely the idea here.

Victoria Beckham Fall 2015 Collection: Bounce It Like Beckham
By Tina Craig on February 15, 2015 2:30 pm
While some designers apply broad themes or specific muses to catalyze their collections, Victoria Beckham tends to get inspired by a certain word that carries her through the season. For Fall ’15, the word is bounce. It’s apparent in the buoyancy of the fabrics, the innate movement of the silhouettes, and the attitude of each and every garment. And the adjectives that ring through this fantastic collection? Sexy and liberating. Backstage, Victoria explained it’s very important to her that her clothes can be taken right off the runway and worn by women in the real world, no adjustments required. She is making it as easy as can be for us to get dressed – and look pristine and polished in the process.
