New York: Posh and pretty frocks with a seriously polished look took the runway at the Victoria Victoria Beckham show, set to a soundtrack by LL Cool J, “Going Back to Cali”. California street style has been a key inspiration for this line, giving it a sense of nonchalance and fresh feminine attitude. This season, along with all of the leggy bell-shaped minis, it was refreshing to see some structured knee-length skirts and dresses. A sense of humor came in with fluffy bud prints, bird motifs and heart-shaped details, while safari-inspired styles in crisp cotton defined a sportier approach to the collection. There were also several cute photo-printed shift dresses and guipure lace retro styles. Oversized plexiglass bangles added a much-needed edge to the collection, as did Walter Steiger platform shoes. — Celia Ingesson
