Velvet is having its big comeback in fashion, and we’ve seen it in various forms throughout the last few seasons. Spring-summer 2017 is into velvet, too, and Victoria Beckham‘s brilliant collection is a clear evidence for us. Just look at the flowing velvet dresses kept in this fascinating, crushed effect. The silhouettes, kept in aquamarine-blue, lilac-purple and snow-white shades, were liquid-like, nearly dripping down the models’ bodies. But velvet wasn’t the only hot topic during Beckham’s outing. A play with proportions has been visible – Victoria’s high-fashion wellies looked so unnaturally big when styled with slim, ribbed-knit dresses or pencil skirts. A boxy top in floral print over a pleated, turquoise skirt: the volumes were utterly disturbed, and the look is far from banal. But that’s the spark of this collection – it’s intriguingly sophisticated, and nothing seems to be there by coincidence. I might even say that it’s the designers’ most challenging and somewhat uncommercial collection to date. A big thumb up.
