This Is How Victoria Beckham Wants Us to Dress in 2021

This week London Fashion Week has been reimagined, with small in-person presentations and most shows and collections being shown digitally. Victoria Beckham was planning to host a small salon show for 15 people, however, she canceled this at the last minute saying that it no longer felt appropriate, instead sharing a video and images of the spring/summer 2021 collection on her Instagram account today. 

This collection was designed during the lockdown, and is a tighter edit, with a total of twenty outfits, compared to the forty-something shown last season. This streamlining has meant there is a focus on the core elements of the Victoria Beckham brand—throw-on beautiful dresses, elegant, classic tailoring, and oversized shirts. Color is used to add vibrancy, with pockets of lilacs, soft lemons, and punchy greens, breaking up the classic color palette of black, white, camel, and navy. Victoria Beckham’s color palette is apparently inspired by her own lockdown diet, as she told The Guardian that “a lot of the references are food-related because David’s been doing so much cooking”—these colors include “banana,” “creme brulee,” and “hollandaise.”

What Beckham chooses to wear to take her bow on the runway has been just as documented as her collections over the years, and despite the lack of audience, we still have a glimpse of VB. She shared a picture of her only audience this year—David Beckham and her children. In the picture she is wearing a pair of flared high-waisted jeans which skim the floor, hiding the height of her heels beneath.
