Victoria Beckham has steadily been loosening up over the years. Body hugging professional wear and fitted cocktail dresses have given way to breezy, yet still very polished separates. It’s a lovely evolution, and one that has felt natural, never forced. The S/S 18 show continued this development.

Beckham said she was looking for power in delicacy this season. The opening look - an orange Sherbet check shirt paired with a sheer pale pink just above the knee skirt and violet pumps - was an exercise in controlled femininity. The collection was restrained: crisp midi-length skirting, often in gingham and Easter tones, sat along side elongated shirting and relaxed slack combos. The dresses that did emerge were relatively conservative and soft in tone; easy for a woman above a certain age to sport with confidence. A cherry red shirtdress - falling well below the knee - stood out especially for its vibrant tone. So did the tailored looks: Beckham is the consummate professional, and so is her client. 

This collection (not without its small fun moments) is accessible, but not just that - it’s desirable, and comfortable, as well.
