It’s no secret that the Victoria Beckham Collection designs are celebrity favorites. The line’s sleek pencil dresses, chic trousers and slinky silk blouses are on heavy rotation in some of our favorite style stars’ closets – and it doesn’t hurt that Posh Spice herself loves serving as her label’s best advertisement. Season after season, we drool from afar as Jennifer Hudson, Eva Mendes and Kate Winslet strut their perfectly polished selves down red carpets across the globe, all wearing pieces from the Victoria Beckham Collection. But according to some breaking fashion industry news, we won’t have to longingly admire Posh’s amazing designs from a distance anymore, because she’s set to launch a brand new, lower-priced label based on her wildly successful (and chic!) high-end line.
Called Victoria by Victoria Beckham, the more affordable line of dresses is set to launch in Spring 2012, and will encompass simple, comfortable silhouettes that are perfect for casual summer days or Fridays at the office. Victoria spoke to Woman’s Wear Daily about the exciting project and said she focused on creating, “the perfect little summer dress, something fun, something girly, something easy to wear, something that would take you from day through the night.” Based on the preview promotional photos we’ve seen, her new styles do exactly that, and will be flattering on a much wider range of body types than her original Victoria Beckham Collection pieces.
After taking a look at her preliminary designs, we’re totally psyched for Victoria’s latest project, but don’t expect to see her lower-priced styles at your local Target or Macy’s. In fact, rumor is that prices will begin at around $500 – which seems steep, but is a steal compared to the price point of her original line. We think these new, slightly-more-affordable frocks will be great special occasion dresses, and even make great gifts for your most stylish best friends. What do you think of Posh’s latest designs? Will you consider buying a lower-priced Victoria Beckham creation when the line hits stores?
