For spring/summer 2021, Victoria Beckham states it is all about freedom,
“to explore, to dress up, to be yourself,” as she shares her hyper-edit of
just 20 looks, nearly half down on what the designer produces for a normal
Beckham, who was going to have a series of salon shows, scaled back her
presentation after the government announced the ‘rule of six’ just days
before London Fashion Week kicked off. Instead, the designer held a small
number of private appointments and released a catwalk video with a personal
In the video, Beckham described the very wearable collection as “rooted
in reality – in life, and living” in a quest to create the “true wardrobe”
filled with pieces inspired by the Seventies with high-waisted elongated
trousers and a white tailored suit.
Commenting on the design process behind the collection, Victoria Beckham
said: “Limitations can be liberating. Working remotely, for this collection
we reacted spontaneously. We were instinctive. We asked ourselves what has
changed? Who do we want to be? What will we desire?
“This collection is rooted in our true DNA, our language; strong
tailoring, sharp colour, modernity. And dressing women.”

As you would expect from a Beckham collection there are a lot of
dresses, from a purple halterneck dress with black lace to an open back
lace detailed floor-length silk black gown, a ruched neckline dress in a
rose nude shade and a black triangle cut-out jersey dress silhouette.
The noticeable difference on last season is the hemlines, for
autumn/winter 2020 Beckham flirted with shorter skirts, for spring/summer
2021, Beckham is back to her trademark long hemlines.
There is also a strong selection of tailoring from split hem straight
leg trousers in bold colours such as lime green, tan and check print,
alongside single-breasted fitted blazers, a white tuxedo suit, and a
Parisian-style trenchcoat, which are perfectly styled with silk and knit
Beckham also touches on the need for lockdown loungewear with a taupe,
light Nappa leather blouson, with a sporty white stripe down the side,
poppers at the neckline and elastic at the waist. It was given a
contemporary feel paired with very long, wide bootcut trouser in the same
Other highlights included a selection of denim, from worn-in patchwork
flares to split hem straight leg jeans, a quilted padded gilet and
statement, oversized chunky brushed gold jewellery.
On the inspiration, Beckham added: “Eclectic is a word I keep returning
to this season – it really encapsulates the woman, her attitude, her
nonchalance. There are different silhouettes, different facets of dressing
– coats, fluid dresses, denim and elongated trousers.
“Hemlines are longer, fits are easier, there’s a fluidity and ease.
Really, it’s about a true wardrobe.”
