From ballet simplicity and complexity. Probably this could be an answer to the Spring Summer 2024 Women’s collection for Victoria Beckham Fashion House.
The 40 looks displayed along the runway show explore inside the construction ballet’s emotional and somatic impressions on clothes and the way the body carries them.
An apparent simplicity appears in the complexity of the volumes and combinations. The colors are mainly delicate and allow femininity to be present without exceeding the presence. A business woman, traveler with goals to pursue, casual but also sensual in her transparencies and short cuts.
As a distinctive motif of the collection, a revisited halter neckline tending towards the navel to give liveliness to the suit and the silhouette. Jackets, trousers, sweaters and shirts and elements taken from lingerie are interspersed in the various looks proposed. A sinuous geometric print appears in long dresses giving additional presence.
Victoria Beckham’s collection offers intimate femininity within a global concept. Between business, free time and privacy alone or in company, the volumes and silhouette play and move like in a ballet.
