NY Fashion Week: Victoria Beckham Fall 2013
The opening look at Victoria Beckham's show was a windowpane plaid coat. She also incorporated more sweaters and knits into her collection, with a nod to mod with some geometric, colourblocked shift dresses. The most unexpected looks were the flashes of bright yellow, including a sleeveless trench; the techno shine she added to pleated skirts that the audience could only see as the models walked; and the long cape-style tuxedo coat. One of the important evolutions for autumn is the softer shoulder, which she used to tweak one of her popular zip-back, slim-fit dress silhouettes. For shoes, she put models in lower kitten heels, made in collaboration with Manolo Blahnik, which was a bit of a surprise for a woman known for skyscraper stilettos.
