Sleek 70’s safari at Victoria Beckham

New York: For spring/summer 2015 Victoria Beckham redefined sleek 70’s safari with a feminine twist on utility details. Trench coats had ruffled collars, utility dresses had cutout shoulders, and 70’s style suiting had playful prints, which offset the otherwise serious tone throughout. Between the midi wrap skirts, knitwear jumpsuits, and platform shoes, Victoria Beckham created looks for the modern, sophisticated, powerful woman with style that surpasses the decades.    Jaclyn Jones
