New York Fashion Week Spring 2013: Victoria Beckham Channels Sporty Spice With New Collection (GALLERY)
Looking pretty stylish himself in a brown suit, David Beckham was there to catch his wife’s much-anticipated collection. Joining Becks were Kate Moss’ ex Jefferson Hack and tennis star Maria Sharapova, but overall, the star power was relatively subdued this morning, considering Mrs. Becks counts Hollywood heavyweights like Katie Holmes among her closest friends.
Perhaps, the former Spice girl was hoping to save more seats for fashion’s big names. An indication that Beckham has secured herself a spot among fashion’s top designers, Vogue editrix Anna Wintour and legendary fashion critic Suzy Menkes were on-hand to view the former pop stars spring collection.
So how did Beckham respond to the pressure of her new “it” designer status?
Ms. Beckham hit a home home, embracing a sporty feel centered on minimalistic black and white pieces infused with bold pops of red for her spring collection.
While Beckham continued her strong focus on tailoring, she took a more dare we say, laidback approach this season, with looser silhouettes joining her signature body-skimming silhouettes.
Flirty skirts that looked like they could go from the runway to the tennis courts and were even paired with (gasp!) flats seemed made for Sharapova, who sat front row. But there were also plenty of styles for the red carpet, with Beckham seeming to draw inspiration from the literary influence of the season, 50 Shades of Grey, with sexy bondage-inspired styles and sheer cutouts adding subtle sex appeal.
And judging from the excited response from the audience, we can expect to see plenty of Beckham’s Spring 2013 collection on the red carpet this spring.
