Victoria Beckham Spring/Summer 16 NYFW Show Is Full Of Surprises

Victoria Beckham stuck to a tried-and-tested favourite of a sleek black dress as she took to the catwalk to present her Spring/Summer 16 collection at New York Fashion Week.

But the fashion designer's safe choice of outfit belied the fact that her latest collection was a departure from form, which featured jewel tones, ginghams, oversized florals and surfer prints.

"I don’t wear a lot of print," Beckham told The Guardian. "So I was excited by working on it. It’s been a tough week but this is a very liberating collection.

"We took the print, we disrupted it, we chopped it up. It’s flattering, it’s not overly challenging, so I’m absolutely going to be wearing that."

One of the stand out prints from the collection featured an "urban surf" theme, and while this may seem an unusual choice for the former Spice Girl known for her love of plain outfits, Beckham told the Financial Times she took inspiration from her own life when choosing the graphic print.

"I’ve done a lot of travelling this year," she said.

Another departure from Beckham's signature style could be found in the choice of footwear on show. Gone were the sky-high stilettos and in their place were relaxed flat shoes and platform sandals.

One of our favourite pieces from the collection was the oversized "half moon bag".

Beckham was supported at the show by her husband David Beckham and their eldest son Brooklyn, who sat in the FROW alongside Anna Wintour.
