It’s been more than a decade since Victoria Beckham‘s Spice Girls days. In fact, we hardly associate her as the black-minidress-wearing Posh Spice anymore. To us, she’s the designerknown for her expertly tailored outerwear pieces and structured silhouettes.
In the April issue of InStyle, Victoria told the magazine how she’s come a long way since her days as a pop star and how the fashion community has accepted her. “I’m really proud of what I achieved with the Spice Girls, but I’m also proud of everything I have done with my brand. So that meant a lot to me, you know? That’s Tom Ford saying, ‘We look at you as a credible designer,’ which was very cool.”
Victoria discussed what it was like debuting her eponymous brand in 2008 vs. today, when she’s got a viral Target collaboration in the works. Her very first RTW collection won over critics who tried to write her off as just another celebrity starting a clothing line. “They could have said, ‘We thought it was going to be rubbish, and it is.’ Instead, they thought it was really good, and I look at that as a positive,” Victoria said.
With just one scroll through her Instagram account, you can tell that Victoria has a very close relationship with her four children, Brooklyn, Cruz, Romeo, and Harper, so it should come as no surprise that she drew inspiration from Harper for her Target collection. “You really get a sense of the relationship between Harper and me. This is fun, easy, cute, all of those things. Very honest. Very me,” she said.
Keep your eye out for the collection, dropping April 9. In the meantime, check out some of the adorable images of Victoria with a bunch of kids trying the collection on for size in InStyle‘s issue.
