In the lead up to the World-Wide Fashion Week’s, who better to focus our attention on than British Fashion Award-Winning designer Victoria Beckham, who is set to launch her new collection of dresses labelled ‘Icon’ this month.
Added to my ever growing fashion wish-list, the dresses are revamped versions of seven of the most iconic dresses from Victoria’s collections archive. Due to be launched online, the new line is set to tie in with the eagerly- awaited re-launch of victoriabackham.com, with the first tightly edited piece being a reworked version of a dress from the spring 2012 collection.
Of the vast array of dresses that Victoria has designed, I can’t say this would be my first choice of her iconic dresses to edit, would it be yours? I would personally like to see a rework of the grey strapless dress that she wore to last year’s Vanity Fair Oscars party!
“Together with my personal edit of the spring/summer 2013 collections, I wanted to be able to offer an exclusive product on the site that was in keeping with the signature aesthetic that’s very special to me,” said Beckham.
“I introduced Icon in response to requests for designs from as far back as my first collection from customers, and I wanted to find a way to offer them key dresses from the archive, but in newly-reworked colours and fabrics.”
The collection is due to evolve with new styles added throughout the year, although with prices starting at £1,000 I perhaps should have started saving sooner.
In addition to the Icon collection, her new site will offer accessories, eyewear, denim and the newest line’ Victoria, Victoria Beckham’, which she will showcase at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this month.
Whilst it does seem rather early on in her fashion career to be bringing out what most would see as a ‘greatest hits’ collection, I am sure this will be better received than a’ greatest hits’ from her music career!
