Technically, these previews are for spring, but an ivory floral neoprene skirt, Hawaiian-flower jumpsuit and knit T that says "Out Mon Cherie" are headed straight to the beach.
The white eyelet and black organza dresses are for a more luxurious European holiday, one with the trappings of luxury from a century ago.
The mint-colored iridescent lace skirt with an aloha crew-neck shirt brought those two worlds together. There was one outfit with blue stripes on a white-based sailor shirt, paired with a snakeskin jacket in the reverse color scheme.
"The key inspiration is duality of each life: The California coast ... tied in with beach life of the Italian coast," said Tom Mora, head of women's design for the brand, in a pre-show interview. "There are delicate pieces with bold, surf-inspired pieces that have kind of a Malibu style."
VICTORIA, VICTORIA BECKHAM
Fresh from presenting her signature collection, Beckham showed her contemporary line by appointment.
She said she also likes to meet with customers. "I do a lot of in-store events, and this is the shape women want," Beckham said of a burnt-orange T-shirt dress.
Beckham wore the most daring silhouette: a quilted, pouffy sky blue dress with a black grosgrain-ribbon hemline and crinoline underneath. It was an unexpected look for a woman who is typically photographed in clean, lean looks.
"There are two sides of my wardrobe, for both sides of my suitcase, one is collection and one is this," she said.
