Like many other designers this season, Victoria Beckham staged her SS21 show virtually. Filming took place at Victoria Miro, the East London contemporary art gallery which is reportedly her favourite one in the city. With the number of looks reduced to 20 from the usual 45, the collection has been described as “hyper-edited” by British Vogue’s Ellie Pithers and the pieces “wearable but dreamy” by Posh herself.
Designed for the post-pandemic fashion landscape, the collection highlighted Beckham’s own wardrobe staples during the lockdown months, and what she imagines women would want to wear stepping out of the pandemic. Waistlines, high. Heels, high. Dresses, fluid. Trouser lengths, long. So long, they appear to “puddle on the floor.” Fabrics were sensual and liberating, comfortable against the skin rather than constricting, as seen in the collection’s many silk shirts, and as worn by Beckham on the set.
Selecting a cream silk blouse secured at the neck with a thin black bow, paired with long, dark blue, high-waisted jeans from her pre-collection, she kept hair and make-up to a minimum. Just nude shades all over, with light pink nails, suggesting she’d much rather not steal the thunder away from her own show, which as we can all imagine is very much a possibility.
Nonetheless, there was no need to remind Victoria Beckham about the importance of accessories, as she finished her look with a classic tan Birkin bag (complete with the requisite silk carré), her engagement ring which she’s never seen without, and Tiffany T1 jewellery. Notably, Beckham had worn the T1 rings and bracelet in yellow gold, which were dropped just days before her show.
Indeed, she was already sporting the pieces one day prior at the presentation rehearsal, as shared on Instagram. This time the designer dressed down in a knit sweater tucked into high-waisted denim jeans, and her hair loosely tied in a relaxed ponytail, demonstrating the delightful versatility of the Tiffany T1 pieces.
One of a kind
Launched in April 2020, the Tiffany T1 is designed for everyday wear and builds on the House’s beloved ‘T’ motif, featured in its creations since the 1980s. This latest interpretation is the brainchild of Tiffany & Co.’s chief artistic officer Reed Krakoff, and debuted with nine 18K rose gold pieces ranging from rings to bracelets, including one exceptional high jewellery necklace.
Combining clean lines and graphic forms, angular yet feminine proportions, the T1 is a resolutely modern interpretation of the iconic motif, and a celebration of strength, success, and independence.
Now, the American jeweller extends the collection with white and yellow gold variations, along with selected pieces set with Tiffany diamonds. Mix and match different styles and metals to create a look that’s distinctively yours.
