When you think of Victoria Beckham, you probably picture her wearing a form-fitting black dress and a scowl. And although the artist formerly known as Posh Spice undoubtedly still appreciates the power of a good LBD, she has since branched out from her alter ego's monochrome sense of style into the world of bright colors and playful prints.
In an interview with The Telegraph on Tuesday night at Mark's Club in London, where she presented the Spring 2018 collection of her Victoria Victoria Beckham line, the designer and former pop star discussed her new approach to fashion. "I used to wear a lot of black, so I would never understand why certain people used to say, 'You need to wear color.' I just thought black was great but now I really enjoy wearing color. When I see pictures of myself in color it feels fresh and more useful," she said, referring to the youth-bestowing powers of a bright hue. "I'm in a great position because I can see pictures of myself and learn from what I see."
Beckham, 43, who has recently posted pictures of herself on Instagram wearing out-of-character pieces like bright red and orange dresses, burnt orange wide-leg trousers and a white shirtdress covered in wavy navy stripes, said that she's switched up her wardrobe as a response to the world around her. "There’s enough bad stuff going on in the world so we need to look at clothes and feel energized and happy," she told the British newspaper. And husband David Beckham apparently approves of his wife's new look. "A few months ago I was wearing blue trousers and a simple red jumper. David never really comments on pictures of me but he said, 'Those pictures look really great, it's great to see you in color.'"
But Beckham hasn't only infused her new love of color into her closet. Her latest Victoria Victoria Beckham collection is also full of splashy prints and tropical colors: Tuesday night's presentation featured a pink pinstriped suit, a bright turquoise turtleneck with matching pants, bubblegum pink pajama-inspired silk separates covered in amoeba-like splotches, a mustard yellow suede minidress, and a bright orange silk jumpsuit.
