the brits are taking over: victoria beckham's marc new gyrl + topshop in soho next september + jonathan saunders moves to ny fash week
WWD began the shooting this breeze a few months back. But we should know that WWD is all business; and in fact, photographer Juergen Teller has shot V. Beckham for Marc Jacobs Spring '08 ads. The deluded camaraderie I share with Posh Spice—ignoring (painfully) her questionable skin color and inability to smile, ever!!—stems from the fact that she's 'Posh!!' Seriously, if you can take up a name like that, you're it!! That, and the fact that I love her naturally chic sense of style, and our mutual hubby, David Beckham, oh heavenly gorgeousness!! And the hat (everyone hated, but I secretly coveted) that she wore to (annoying) Tom and Katie's wedding. So Brit haute. This merger between V and Marc confirms three key details:
~ Posh is the epitome of cool!! At least for now. This is just as well because I love her. It's the well-honed bitchiness look.
~ Posh's skin color and, perhaps her hair, may be taking up new colors and patterns in the near future!! I mean you never can tell What Marc Jacobs may decide. LOL.
~ Marckie Marc's (LOL) interest in more refined women confirms his growth and self-assuredness as he explores titillating notions of sex and self-identity in his clothes. And just in Ms. Beckham's honor, here aresome of my fave pics of her:
And in more Brit intelligence news: Topshop is coming to Soho NY next September; can't wait!! And Jonathan Saunders—whom I adore for his succinctly refined, yet, very much avant-garde collections—is joining the flock of Brit designers who've left LFW and will be showing at NY fashion week.
Joy to the world!!
