mod men

Last of Bryant Park, Victoria Beckham.

Posted in fashion week., new york city. by modman on February 18, 2010

Again, this isnt a collection that I got a chance to see but my love for VB and her career and designs are just too great for me to overlook her Fall Collection. As style.com reported, Victoria personally greeted each of the guests at the town house where she presented her Fall Collection and she also narrated the story as each piece walked down the runway. How amazing it would have been for me to have been in that showroom!

VBs cuts are the most flattering and sell-able quality about her dresses and I believe she has a strong understanding of what looks flattering on a woman. She first began to wear her designs and I remember critics accused that an “average” woman couldnt fit into her dresses. Since then, the popularity of her dresses, especially in the entertainment/music business, has skyrocketed and her designs sell out quickly once they hit net-a-porter.

Style.com also did state, “there wasn’t one bad dress in the bunch”.

As much as I would love to agree that I loved all the pieces, there were a few of them that didnt really work for me. But VB did explain that this collection was about comfort (to some degree) and the draping and loose-fitting pieces were not a complete departure from her aesthetic. I love that there is color throughout the collection (although I was fine with her greys and blacks) and although I was a bit disappointed at first, at least VB is venturing off and growing her brand by “winning her a whole new class of fans”.

My favorites of the collection include:

After reading over this post, I cant believe I initially questioned VBs collection.. but I’m glad that I was able to voice my instant thoughts and really focus on what it was that I didnt find as appealing as her last collection. Maybe I just need VB to try on all the pieces. Just as important as the dress is, the person wearing the dress has to embody the VB look. Not everyone can pull off VB dresses as well as she can.. not even the models. Come on now.

I realized that so many people in fashion fall so much in love with a designer or his/her past collections that they automatically come to “love” every collection thereafter by the designer. I’m not saying that someone cant have a favorite designer/s and love the aesthetic, but I think its important to have an objective view as well. Just some thoughts that I’ve been having after a chat with Carine, who did say “I love everything that Diane does!”

Does she really? was the question I had in my head at the time.
