Victoria Beckham usually takes a ‘gang’s all here’ approach to fashion week - and this season proved no different. Taking pride of place on today’s front row were David, Romeo, Cruz and Harper - only Brooklyn missed mum's show - who had their camera phones dutifully trained on the catwalk.

The show itself was a musing on refinement and rebellion. As the notes explained, ‘I was inspired by different ideas of women - different characters, different movements and different attitudes - but with no restrictions. The overriding sentiment that we don’t have to follow rules. We can follow our instincts’

This idea of being ‘spirited’ was threaded throughout the collection. A series of LBDs opened the show, but had a distinct point of difference, with fluid sleeves and waists that came cinched with bourgeoise leather belts.

‘I think it was a strong statement opening with these black dresses,’ Victoria told Grazia backstage, ‘I don’t like anything to look overly designed.’ She also said she was feeling a shorter hemline, with pleated knee-length culottes and a kilt-esque skirt, complete with braces slung around in the hips, in saturated red being particularly delicious examples.

One of the big takeaways was that the designer has clearly fallen back in love with heels, choosing stacked-heeled boots that came scrunched to their wearers’ legs.

In terms of what your typical fashion editor will be adding to her basket for autumn, the scarf-printed dress with elongated leg-of-mutton sleeves and a keyhole cut-out at the reverse will be coveted, and ditto the tent-shaped trenches, Like their maker, who did the briefest bow and wave to Harper for today's finale, they're guaranteed to be a safe bet next season.
