Victoria Beckham at home

by Kenya Hunt |

As the nation prepared for a festive season to be spent largely at home, Victoria Beckham quietly rolled out a limited- edition collection of homeware – no bells, no marketing, no whistles. Her first foray into the category, it’s a tightly edited capsule of chic, colour-blocked mohair cushions, blankets and scarves dyed in unexpected colour stories (tangerine, fuchsia, strawberry red and mustard yellow for one, burnt orange, cobalt blue, milk and black for the other). It’s both a very Fashion In 2020 and quintessentially Victoria Beckham kind of launch in that it epitomises the relaxed, easy luxury that both have become known for.

But she’s careful to point out that the one-off collection (there are only 50 pieces per style) isn’t necessarily a pivot. ‘This isn’t full homeware launch; I just felt that as part of our holiday offering for customers it made sense to have items that evoked a feeling of comfort and warmth, especially since we’ll be spending most of our time at home this year.’ Her collection centres on those hard-working winter style staples that mix fashion and function. ‘The blanket and cushion are both super-versatile, statement pieces that work in any room, and who doesn’t love a cosy colourful scarf in winter?”

The move makes business sense. We’ve all been nesting this year – a time in which the cashmere hoodie and luxe blanket are two of fashion’s biggest stories of the autumn/winter season. And we’ve reached a point on the corona-coaster in which the luxe blanket or designer slipper is the purchase most likely to spark instant gratification, rather than a statement dress or going-out shoe. ‘It just feels so right for now,’ she says of the luxe blanket’s comeback. ‘There is a sense of bringing those home comforts into our wardrobes.’

And like most of us, Victoria has had to adjust to remote working, producing her women’s collections from her dining table, rather than her atelier. ‘It’s certainly been a different year for Victoria Beckham,’ she says in an interview a week before Christmas. ‘Developing collections at the kitchen table and in the garden and communicating via Zoom definitely tested us at times but, overall, I found some freedom in the restrictions.’

Victoria says the best thing about being at home is all the time she’s been able to spend with her family. ‘We are often travelling or in different places so it was lovely to be together for a prolonged period of time – particularly once Brooklyn and Nicola [Peltz] came to the UK,’ she says of her son and his fiancée.

‘A happy home is about being together, being present for each other and making time to have fun,’ she says. ‘We love spending time together playing games, watching movies or going for a walk.’ When they’re indoors, she likes to dial up a feeling of warmth through lighting. ‘I always have candles burning to create atmosphere.’ And she styles out her interiors as she does her clothing. ‘From both a fashion and home perspective, I like things to be classic and chic, but I also like to inject something humorous or unexpected. And I love a bold colour for both.’
