NEW YORK --
The look:Linear, disciplined. Menswear-inspired modern, beginning with the first look--a beautiful, straight line blue check coat. Coats were the stars of this collection, including a bright yellow sleeveless topper with a waist side tie, Simple, modular shift dresses were color and fabric blocked, with the skirts slit on a diagonal across the front. A black fur front turtleneck sweater was a major piece, as was a creamy white blouse with soft shawl collar tucked into a pencil skirt with graphic patent leather piping in the kick pleats. Beckham ended with a couple of riffs on the tuxedo, including a short tuxedo cape with deep satin lapels, worn with boxy cropped pants.
The inspiration: Texture and simplicity. Combining enhanced volumes and restrained outlines.
The verdict:Like a latter day Calvin Klein, Beckham offered a stunning wardrobe for women who are serious about clothes and purity of design.
