British invasion yet again!
Just about a week after signing her perfume deal with Harvey Nichols, the always robotic stylish Victoria Beckham is launching her dress collection for her label dVb. After the jeans and sunglasses, it’s about time some dresses come out. Although we often question her taste of stiff-looking getups, we can’t say we hate the preview of her new line.

The dresses are tailored to the body and embrace the use of basket-weave cotton, fine gazar and georgette silks, touched by Indian embroidery and lots of hand-sewn beading. Victoria, a lover of structured dresses, stated:
“I like to focus on the posture of a woman and how she holds herself, which led me to incorporate features such as modern corsetry and grosgrain details,” she said. “All corsetry is made for comfort and support with the finest materials, and, in addition, there are finer grosgrain belts that are incorporated into the line of the softer constructed dresses to give this effect in a more subtle way, thus enabling women of all sizes to wear my dresses to create a magnificent silhouette.”
And we think women of all sizes need structured corsets to fit in her collections. But Vic said don’t sweat it, as they come with built-in corsets! Whoa.
“Structure is an important word to use when discussing my collection. The corsets and belts that have been incorporated into my dresses have been made in such a way that they are comfortable and supportive. My clothes are designed for women from a woman’s perspective.”
Turns out that anything is Posh-ible.
Is she revealing her own secrets there? We don’t care. We want the built-in corsets! But we’ll have to wait until next week, as the collection will be unveiled in a private viewing. Victoria Beckham’s dresses will hit upscale department stores soon and will be displayed under the Victoria Beckham and dVb.
