Victoria Beckham's designs are always easy on the eye and her Pre-AW14 beauties are no different. The designer has just dropped off a sneak preview of her latest creations before the full collection launches on victoriabeckham.com tomorrow and they ooze everything we love about VB's very own style. Take a look...
This is Victoria's second Pre-Collection, following the success of the Pre-SS14 designs, but this time, she's focused on a simple yet sharp vibe. So expect a range of timeless essentials from a tuxedo jacket to a cigarette trouser as well as soft blouses and fitted dresses. As for the colour palette, we adore the bold electric blue for a pop of colour and there's sunny tangerines and deep aubergines too as well as the signature muted nudes and monochromes.
Yes, VB's style signatures are in there too - as ever, the dresses are ideal for sculpting and skimming a woman's shape and those rose gold zips at the back are firmly in place. But the signature styles have been updated a tad with sheer panels and contrasting textures. There are breezy blouses with layered organza stripes, wool coats featuring graphic layered lines of felt, and short-sleeved shift dresses with multiple layers at the hem.
As for the tailoring, there's a relaxed, mannish approach this time round. The new trouser shape – the Cigarette Trouser – features a satin waist band and matching piping while the double-breasted shirt features brass closures at the cuff and collar.
Finally, we have a dollop of old school glamour courtesy of the floorlength dresses, with strapless, sweeping column creations in classic white or black. And yes, that is the no-fuss number VB wore to the Met Ball earlier this month. We can expect to see the lady herself showcasing more of the best bits in weeks to come...
