Same Ol' Vicky ... Victoria Beckham F/W 09-10 Collection

Victoria Beckham will always be Victoria Beckham, and ditto her own fashion atelier with the same name. Not to mention, anything that’s inspired from the bygone eras also sell.

After swooning well-heeled ladies with her ultra glamorous spring/summer 2009 ready-to-wear collection, she is back for a sophomore set. However, do not expect the new line to be different from the previous one because the lady of the manor (or the palace since she lives in one called Beckingham) is retaining her sense of style as point of reference, either you like it or not.

The new collection, which was shown to the press, buyers and some lucky fans of hers in a by-appointment-only showcase in New York, sports the same feature just like the current spring/summer collection.

Everything is made to fit your svelte body perfectly, sharply cut and darted. Colour palette for the season ranges from regal hue of lavender, shades of red, and the inevitable black and white, as well as classical shimmering gold.

Albeit her iconic sense of dressing has always been the point of reference for this collection, it seems that Mrs. Beckham too had looked to another style icon – former supermodel Twiggy – and her contagious style for ideas as well. The result is a line of sixties-inspired pieces like an immaculately tailored jacket in lavender sateen with two front pockets, zippered long sleeves and paired with a simple pair of black leggings. Best of all, the ensemble was worn by Malaysian model Amber Chia!

Other noteworthy pieces that a sophisticated woman (not her die-hard fans, please) should stock for the upcoming fall/winter season are gold sheath with knee-length hem, peplumed A-line dress, body-conforming black long dress with long sleeves and wide neck, and the classic capped sleeve long dress in traditional black and white combo, which has always been part of Mrs. Beckham’s iconic picks.

The Victoria Beckham FW 09/10 ready-to-wear collection will be available at selected retailers worldwide early fall this year.
