With a focus on a "midcentury silhouette" and structure, Victoria Beckham previewed her 10-look collection to WWD. Fabrications include "basket-weave cotton, fine gazar and georgette silks" with "touches of Indian embroidery and hand-sewn beading." Beckham made a point to note that the collection was made to work for women bigger than a size 0: In addition to corsetry, she told the pub, "there are finer grosgrain belts that are incorporated into the line of the softer constructed dresses to give this effect in a more subtle way, thus enabling women of all sizes to wear my dresses to create a magnificent silhouette." If the models are any indication, you might look as taut and severe as Posh with one of these numbers on.
Only a segment of women will be able to afford the line however, ranging from $600-$1,400 wholesale (double that and then some for retail). The luxe collection is being previewed at private appointments during NY Fashion Week, and will be distributed under the "Victoria Beckham and dVb" label (whatever that means) at upscale departments store and specialty boutiques.
