When Victoria Beckham started her namesake brand 10 years ago, it was about designing and fitting the female form. From this, her signature form-fitting power sheath dress was born.  More recently, Beckham has evolved to embrace a more relaxed luxury in her designs and her fall line continues this trend by incorporating feminine suiting with romantic details. Blazers are accented with gold grommets and waist-cinching belts, worn over flowy, full-length satin skirts with pleats. Beckham’s color palette was mainly muted, fall-weather colors like navy blue and slate gray mixed with pops of bright colors in the oversized bags. But some of her standout pieces incorporated a rich, leopard-print textile to really amp-up the luxe factor. This fall, Victoria Beckham very poignantly highlights the fact that she clearly has cornered the market on feminine power suiting, and she does so with a renewed sense of confidence, grace and ease in her designs.

This season Lak seems to have captured a flair for the dramatic, which is a stark contrast from his slightly more subdued spring 2018 collection. This fall, we gain more of a lucid color-play complete with ombré colors and vibrant silhouettes against sheer overlays draped over satin. We see a pleated satin dress in burnt orange hues and a dusty rose-colored, satin, drapey suit that is pulled together with a light blue ombré button up. This ethereal dreamlike state that Lak creates in his designs truly conveys something special in every piece that we see in this collection.  After five seasons Sies Marjan continues to evolve and amaze.
