A quieter and more sophisticated lens is applied to functional sportswear this season – ease and adaptability are key themes for Drop Six. The high-performing wardrobe comprises the most essential activewear, executed in its purest form and remaining closely connected to the sporting and fashion worlds.
“At the beginning of the design process I always start with one key piece that references a particular sport. Last season was all about the tennis dress whereas this Drop sees the introduction of a wide-leg basketball warm-up trouser inspired by my travels to the US. My vintage wardrobe also plays a big part in the look and feel of each capsule, the Reebok M65 Parka nods to one of my favourite jackets – we’ve cropped it, cut it to the waist and fitted it with wide pockets so it can be worn all day long.” Victoria Beckham, Creative Director
Feminine proportions are revised and silhouettes are cropped and boxy, consciously flattering the waist. Yarns in the seamless series are woven tighter for a more compact texture, twisting to allow for movement of the body while sculpting and providing support. The VB Cropped Hoody is also updated with the addition of a jersey lining, promising comfort and warmth during recovery.
Colours are grounded in earthy tones of clay and seaspray green, reminiscent of the year of staycations in the British Isles and punctuated with solar yellow, found in the embroidery of the iconic VB Cowl Neck Jumper and impactful vector taping. A matte finish brings an element of subtle sophistication to the range. To contrast the simplicity, the logos are bigger and bolder, exuding energy and confidence.
Footwear makes a statement, the VB Zig Kinetica features in a striking neon sonar yellow while the iconic and minimalist VB Club C, with embossed logo detailing, includes classic graphic iterations of contrasting black and white, as well as a subtle coral glow.
