That long weekend of non-stop Jubilee fun has left us Graziettes feeling pretty patriotic. The red, white and blue palette has certainly rubbed off on our wardrobes and even Kate Middleton's fondness for lace has infiltrated our office attire, our love for Prince Harry has grown ten-fold (did anyone else feel sorry for his third-wheel-ness?) and even our grotty weather is getting Karl Lagerfeld's seal of approval.
To add to our buoyant Blighty spirit, we've been treated to a video of Victoria Beckham trilling about the benefits of being British. From home-grown talent such as Burberry, Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen to the buzzing energy of London town, VB clearly loves her GB. 'I remember when I was younger, I used to love going to Camden Market on a Sunday,' she says although we can't picture her tackling those cobbles in her Louboutins. 'It's really multi-cultural and that is more inspiring that anything.'
So although Lady Becks is based in LA and shows her collections during New York Fashion Week, she reveals her form-fitting designs are created in our fair city. 'I want to make women feel good about themselves and for me to be able to achieve the quality I want to give my customer, I have to do that in London,' she reveals. 'My brand is British, my team are all British.' *waves Union Jack*
Of course, VB reserves a special mention for the Queen and praises her 'appropriate' but 'chic' wardrobe. Quite right too. AND she reminds the fash pack that Anna Wintour, the editor of US Vogue, is another of England's national treasures. In fact, 'she's probably THE most respected person in the fashion industry ever.' Ooh, could Beckham and Wintour be the new besties of Fash Land?
You'll remember the powerhouse pair were last seen striking a pose on the world's most fashionable train platform EVER as international ambassadors for Britain’s GREAT campaign - and this video is the latest component for that initiative, which aims to help promote the best of Britain around the world. Victoria is playing a leading role in the 'Fashion is GREAT' element in a bid to highlight the UK as the top place in which to visit, study and invest and considering the designer's fashion empire is going from strength to strength, we reckon she's the perfect lady for the job.
