It's #NYFW: Victoria Beckham Fall 2017

“I’ve never really worn a blazer with a skirt,” Victoria Beckham said in the midst of fittings a day before her show. For a designer searching for a creative spark, that’s just about the best reason to try something—you simply haven’t done it before—and it proved a worthwhile exercise for Beckham this season. She paired her structured, slightly oversize blazers and sheer chiffon skirts with slouchy, knee-high leather boots. The look was a world away from where she started eight and half years ago—pulled together, yet relaxed, with versatility built in. Sometimes the billowy skirt came with a generously proportioned turtleneck sweater. Other times she put a full pantsuit together, but she retained the easy attitude with full, hip-slung trousers and martingales that pulled the jackets partially back, as if the models had just encountered a strong breeze. In counterpoint to the ease of the tailoring and dresses, her new season bags are quite structured. The square styles the models clutched to their hips were modeled after a vanity case, inspired, she said, by her Estée Lauder partnership. Beckham’s power women would probably prefer something that will fit an iPad; she has those, too." -
