In celebration of Victoria and David Beckham’s new daughter, I thought I’d write yet another post about how much they annoy me. By the way, who gives their daughter the middle name Seven?
In addition to the tight dresses, overpriced handbags, men’s underwear, sunglasses, jeans, and a ridiculous number of perfumes, the Beckham empire has decided to grace us with yet another tasteless fashion product: a line of “affordable” dresses, under the label Victoria by Victoria Beckham. Most designers (although Victoria Beckham is NOT a designer) would decide to put both loose and tight clothing in the same collection, but not this Spice Girl. She has decided to start a NEW line of clothing, which will be lower priced with less body conscious pieces, so that her signature line can still be all tight dresses copied from Roland Mouret’s Galaxy dress.
I guess she decided that skintight column dresses don’t work on a pregnant woman (I can agree with that) so she decided to launch a new line to suit a rounder figure. But this is absurd! Just because one is in the “mood” for a new silhouette, doesn’t mean we start a new fashion collection. Usually, we incorporate this new shape into our existing collection. It is called TRENDS. And DESIGN. Two things that Victoria knows nothing about. Her main line is obviously not going to evolve at all, so she’s just adding a new collection to sell a different shape. I guess we can look forward to a brand new collection when she decides to wear trousers and shorts. Perhaps that will be called Legs by Victoria Beckham.
The dresses, unsurprisingly, are nothing special. They have been inspired by Emily the Strange (a reference point that will not last more than a season or two… what will she do next?) And their price range is $550-$900, which is less expensive than her main line, but still ridiculously expensive. The dresses look like high street, and therefore are not worth paying more than $100 for. The sad thing is, I am sure this rubbish will sell because there are people out there who buy her stuff. Sob!
p.s. How long before we have to stomach a collection of dresses for little girls? I am taking bets.
