Victoria Beckham debuted her line of luxury handbags at her spring-summer 2011 show this weekend—and true to her label aesthetic, they are posh. "A Beckham can replace your Birkin," Beckham told In Style. Clothes-wise, the reviews of her new collection were overwhelmingly positive. Hilary Alexander at the Telegraph writes: "Her new collection zeroed-in on voluptuous short dresses in parachute silk, in vivid shades of ultraviolet, mandarin orange, blush and metallics, with high-waists and sinuous seaming to emphasise and flatter the body. Others came in a colour she described as "Cadillac Pink" - "there's a few references to cars, now I'm working for Range Rover," she said." [Stylewatch]
