    35 dream summer looks, ½ a new IT bag and one posh portaloo. Let’s crunch the VB numbers, shall we?

    1 New VB Staff Member
    Team Victoria Beckham has a new recruit! Well, she’s hired a rising star artist, Brooklyn Beckham, anyway, after he declared his passion for fashion photography. First assignment? Mum’s SS16 lookbook, it seems. Black and white snaps seem to be Brooklyn’s signature style – could their secret pre-show project be coming to a billboard near you soon? ‘Another amazing show. Well done mum your boss?

    35 Flippy Sporty Looks
    SS16 will be one big picnic if VB’s got anything to say about it. We love her gingham spliced, summer-ready dresses and relaxed but athletic outerwear options. Working with mega-stylist Joe McKenna, she’s created an easy breezy silhouette that’s already got us dreaming of a balmy SS16. ‘I want women to feel like the best version of themselves,’ Mrs B said backstage. In this lot, it would be hard not to.

    ½ A New IT Bag
    Meet the Half Moon, Victoria’s SS16 ‘bag of the season.’ Things you could fit into this whopping piece of arm candy? ALL your paperwork, six regular sized saddle bags, half a large pepperoni pizza…

    1 Private Portaloo
    But of course VB’s got her own private show loo. This was definitely one of our best backstage finds…

    22 Packets Of Sweets
    We know VB loves a pre-show sugar rush (last year it was all about the Dunkin’ Donuts) and SS16 was sweeter than ever. Packets and packets of M&Ms and gummy bears were delivered to the venue, along with a full buffet spread by exclusive NY restaurant Cipriani. Yum. 

    500 Guests
    An intimate affair (by NYFW standards, anyway) VB chose to invite her top 500 fashion insiders to yesterday’s unveiling. On the front row? Just David and Brooklyn out to support, of course. Who needs a FROW full of Kardashians when you’re a Beckham anyway, right?
