Victoria Beckham returned to her ‘Spice Girls’ days with her trademark, iconic corset at her fall 2016 runway show. Beckham’s idea was to make the bustier appropriate for day. By this, the bustier didn’t necessarily cling on skin with luxurious evening wear fabrics. Instead, Beckham designed the fitted tops in Prince of Wales checks, houndstooth jacquards and dark block colours, with cutouts sliced below the bustline.
There were a plethora of body-con ribbed knit pieces that came in solids and stripes; layered over each other to create a curvy effect. Two-piece trousers and cut-out tops were also strong. Beckham experimented with volume: bubble skirts and airy A-lines that flared generously to below the knee over flat, pointy shoes. Asymmetric pencil skirts also worked with fitted bustier tops. Different coloured checks and stripes were mashed up together and worn as shirts with skirts.
Standout outerwear was key in houndstooth and tartan with heavy red stitching that frayed to the ends. There were soft structured clutch coats with fringe detailing at the hem mixed and sharp tailored numbers in menswear checks.
