NY Fashion Week SS09 Wrap Up I

Who knew Victoria Beckham had a dress collection showing at Fashion Week? Where does the women get the time between her reality TV show, pedicures, designing jeans and sunglasses, whipping up a perfume and being a wife and a mom? But anyway, back to the collection. Despite her having graced Blackwell's Worst Dressed List many times and indeed having a questionable sense of style on occasions, I am still very much want to like her collection. At the back of my mind, I guess my love for the Spice Girl era still lingers, making me want to love everything about them. And Posh has always been my favourite Spice.

However, despite my best efforts to want to be wow-ed, I was not blown away. It was a small and simple collection, to put it nicely. The entire collection could be summed up by a few looks. It was basically a collection that contained a few versions of the same dresses. They were all slimming pencil skirts of the same slightly longer length (which I think is great for more sophistication and class). It was definitely cohesive!
There was the simple round neck dress in blue. The clean cut strapless dress in black (perhaps a reminiscent of the little black Gucci dress? Turns out it wasn't even by Gucci!). I believe they also showed this dress in white on the runway.There was the crochet (I think?) topped dress. They also have this in white. Then the dress shirt dress, which we've been seeing in the stores a lot lately. She has this in black with chiffon and silk, and of course, in white and black.
Finally there was this silhouette, which is my favourite. I think this silhouette is very clever and very flattering to the female body. It curves at all the right places. I can totally see Victoria in it. This was possibly the most inspiring thing about the whole collection and of course she has this silhouette in many different styles. In black, in white, a casual less emphatic version and a more dressed up version.
Although personally I'm not sure it'll look very good on me, since I'm shorter (and definitely not as lithe as the models!), so the skirt will probably cut my legs exactly where it shouldn't!

All in all, it was not a very inspiring (besides that shape of course) nor wow-ing collection. To give Victoria her credit though, it was indeed a very simple and classic collection. They are definitely not dated, which was her aim. And I'm sure they are very well made and tailored given the $1500-$3600 price range. Plus, at 15 looks, she did not try to overdo the collection with more unnecessary looks. It is always quality over quantity after all. Though I think 4 looks would've suffice to get the creative message across. But then, that wouldn't be a very good show, would it?

they are simple but you are not, not very inspiring. it's basically the same shilhouette with different details.

Do these garments really warrant that price tag?

They are stylish, and to the point. And while I love that about the collection, those prices IMO are ghastly and disproportionate.

Riding on a celebrity all the way to the bank and insulting our intelligence along the way is soooo House of Dereon.

Yikes.

I totally thought "wow those look like Victoria Beckham dresses" when I saw those! Ha, I had no idea she had a line of dresses. I badly want a pair of her dvb jeans, but they are over the moon expensive. Down the line, thats what ebay is for I guess!

To start, I will say the dresses are super cute. That siad, BORING. Not to mention overpriced.

You don't need to spend that kind of money for dresses for that look. It's everywhere for less because they are not fashion forward. It's a way cute version of what has already been done...

Victoria's hair and husband - impressive. Her fashion sense - not so much.

The top couple of dresses are too basic to be a part of a high fashion line. They look too Banana Republic. The white is interesting but maybe not at that price-point. Her haircut was really cute though :)

I have to admire her for her dedication and pure motivation she must have to do all the things she does while looking after her kids. WOW, the clothes look great!
