Victoria Beckham says her latest collection was inspired by her move back to Britain.
The fashion designer – who, along with husband David and their four children, left Los Angeles last year to live in London – showcased her autumn/winter 2013-14 range at New York Fashion Week yesterday (10.02.13) and the tailored cashmere coats, elegant tuxedo suits and graphic intarsia knits paid homage to her new life.
She said: “I am spending a lot more time in England now.
“And yes, I have become a bit of a material nerd. I’ve spent a lot of time in Europe, but it is about fabric, texture, British heritage tweeds and knitwear from Scotland – and I took a lot of inspiration from men’s clothes.
“I prefer the word mannish. I wanted to translate those shapes into a feminine silhouette, so there is volume in the coats and that tuxedo shape, but turned into a gilet.”
Posh Spice once again won over the critics with her collection, which also features A-line skirts, sophisticated dresses and two new handbags.
Among those in the front row were husband David – who was seen looking after their 19-month-old daughter Harper backstage – and US Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
After New York, London Fashion Week is up next, starting on Friday 15 February and strutting its stuff until Tuesday 19.
