With the Bryant Park tent drawing jeers for its disorganization this season, it’s a relief to attend a show that’s not only hassle free but starts on time. Victoria Beckham did just that and more. Instead of opting for an extravagant runway show, Beckham hosted a series of salon-like presentations for a small number of editors, where she personaly talked though her spring/summer ’09 collection.
Celebrity lines can rarely contend with top designers in the upper echelon of fashion, but Beckham managed to dispel that myth too, presenting a serious collections showcasing her skill at making a woman’s natural curves all the more sensual. There were washed gazar dresses that had strong shoulders and accentuated the waist, a yellow corset power mesh dress with an origami fold on the front that Beckham calls a “folded petal effect,” and a silk floor length gown with geometric cut-outs and panels to accentuate the body. Apart from accentuating womens’ curves, Beckham also considered recessionary demands with a sexy black lace dress, which also comes with a tube dress. Worn together it’s sensual, but if you’re in a risque mood then you can wear them separately. Now that’s bang for your buck.
