Victoria Beckham presented her Spring 2011 ready-to-wear line yesterday morning in New York and we must say: the girl done good. Victoria has rarely put a wrong Brian Atwood-clad foot forward during her young career as a designer, turning out dresses that are classy, sophisticated and very popular with celebrities.
In addition to dresses and eye-wear, Mrs. B debuted a line of handbags with her collection. All were highly structured and took inspiration from some of her favourite handbag designers, including Hermes and Loewe.
Also of note were the custom-made Brian Atwood heels each of her models sported. Victoria tweeted yesterday that their rose gold colour was inspired by her favourite Rolex. Don’t we all have shoes inspired by our favourite Rolex? Next season may we suggest shoe colour inspired by Jesus Navas’ eyes?
Join us after the jump as we rank five looks (in footy terms, natch) from VB’s latest offering.
Hattrick – We would do just about anything to float away in this gorgeous cloud of a dress. If that meant never looking at Zlatan’s thighs again then so be it. That’s a serious sacrifice, no?
Penalty Kick – Just like a PK should be, this dress is almost a sure thing. We love the dusty pink colour and the little pleated skirt. The one cause for concern – much like a patch of slippery grass or a damn good keeper, is the questionable nipple situation. Remind us to ask Michael Ballack for pointers on keeping them under control.
Free Kick – Like a free kick, this dress could go either way. The cheery marigold colour should sail right over the defensive wall, but those suspended-in-time drapes could easily have you fizzing right over the goal into row Z. We love this dress, but can’t help to think that it looks perpetually caught in a wind storm.
Offside – So close yet so far. Aside from having to posses the body of, er, a model to wear this dress, the shiny fabric won’t do you any favours in the ‘slightly wobbly bits’ department. Luckily, after your goal is called back you can make good with this little number. Same iridescent fabric, but much more flattering.
Own Goal – There is no way back from this. This is most certainly the equivalent of a terrible miss where you’ve just embarrassed yourself, your team and your mama and there are thousands of angry pissed-up fans hurling abuse at you.
We don’t get the pleats on the full skirt and it the whole thing resembles a bed sheet wrap dress one quickly fashions to answer the door. You know, if all of your clothes had been stolen and you had no other choice. Sigh. If only she had done it with a short skirt….
