LONDON (AP) – Victoria Beckham does not need celebrities at her fashion shows – her family A-List provides more than enough energy.
The designer's husband, retired football superstar David Beckham, and the couple's four children were invited on Sunday to support his London Fashion Week parade. The old Spice Girl was one of the big names on the British scene, alongside Vivienne Westwood, Burberry and Roland Mouret.
Take a look at the highlights of Sunday:
FAMILY AFFAIRS IN VICTORIA BECKHAM
The first line of the Victoria Beckham parade is of a younger average age than the VIP seats of the other salons. Harper, the youngest creator, was 7 years old and sat on her father's lap. He chatted kindly with American Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
Like everyone else, members of the Beckham family in the public whipped the smartphones to take a picture of Victoria Beckham when she came to take a bow at the end of the screen.
The designer said she wanted to channel "modern femininity" and cinematic drama for the collection and had in mind a particular image of the woman wearing her clothes.
"She's okay but she's certainly not primitive," Beckham writes in her show notes.
The result has been a mix of feminine classics – tailored checkered blazers, tweeds, diamond jumpers, silky blouses perfectly arranged in pencil skirts – with eye-catching and eye-catching details like sock-open boots at the lips, lipsticks or leopard, shiny satin stilettos with citrus fruit, brilliant fuchsia and chartreuse.
The bell pants, a style that the designer has adopted as a signature, has made its appearance. It was the same for the trend of checks, which seems to always go strong. One set includes a wide coat, trousers and tote bag in the same brown plaid pattern.
ADAPTED AND BENEFICIARY TO ROLAND MOURET
Roland Mouret, the creator once better known for his tight bandage dress, has moved on. For the coming autumn and winter seasons, her clothes are all made up of oversized shapes and male costumes.
Mouret, who counts among her fans Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is said to be interested in the proportions and style of the pieces without considering the traditional divisions between the sexes.
There is a cream-white double-breasted pantsuit and wide, loose blazers worn over silky, flowing dresses. A loose-fitting plaid suit with drawstring trousers is paired with a lurex top.
For those looking for an oversized garment, Mouret offers a huge shaggy fur coat that will certainly make the party, wherever.
There are still many traditionally sweet and feminine things. Asymmetrical handkerchief skirts caress the calves and move beautifully with the movement. Strategically draped bodices sneakily reveal a shoulder and collarbone. The shimmering metallic lurex adds luxury and the final look of the show, a pale blush dress worn under a matching faux fur coat, is crafted in a fabric so light that it floats like clouds.
