How Posh! Victoria Beckham Debuts New Line of Handbags at Runway Show

Victoria Beckham may have been anxious before her Spring 2011 presentation during New York Fashion Week on Sunday, Tweeting, “About to go!!!! Excited!!! Nervous!!!! X VB x” but the designer had nothing to worry about, pulling off the N.Y.C. show with her signature polish–and proving why she’s quickly becoming one of the hottest tickets in town. “What’s alluring for me this season are the curves of a women’s figure–sensual volume and a defined silhouette that allows for a freedom of movement,” Victoria told InStyle.com. Along with the elegant wearable dresses that were sent down the runway—sure to be coveted by existing A-list fans like Cameron Diaz and Gwyneth Paltrow—guests were also treated to a first look at her brand new line of handbags, which, if Victoria has any say in it, will rival even those of luxe label Hermes. “A Beckham can replace your Birkin,” Posh was overheard saying to a guest, according to InStyle.com. And in addition to her must-have “Victoria Satchel,” what is one of Posh’s favorite items from the collection? A travel tote that she designed for husband David! Said Beckham: “I had to put a bag in the collection that David would use.” To see more of Victoria’s spring 2011 collection, visit InStyle.com. –Gillian Koenig

I love this woman-Everything she wears is elegant-simple and classy looking-Kind of a young Jackie O look if she was alive today- I bet Princess Diana would have gone crazy over Beckhams line of clothes and bags-I would purchase a Beckham over a Birkin and I loved her new dresses….Charming and sophisticated

Jade on

I love her line of clothes, but unfortunately I am a plus size. I like her Purse / Hand bag lines.

elsa caceres on

for somebody who is not so talented…she has done well…when you have a famous husband…it does help…it reminds me of Katie Holmes…they are lucky who they are married to…and it is bovious they both want the fame …dentermination has won!

Lena on

Nothing has replaced the Birkin or have come even close. I don’t think that any woman that can afford a Birkin will replace it with a Beckham. I like Victoria, but she has gone a step too far. Let’s face facts. Posh has a great design team.

Leslie on

Well Victoria, until each of your bags is 100% handmade by a craftsman and takes 6 months to arrive because of the workmanship and because they must be specially ordered, and cannot be found at even stores like Bloomingdales or Harrods, then you can say they are as good as the only last true luxury bag company in the world. And for those of you who think LV is a luxury brand, do your research before posting about their bags that are simply canvas!

Susie on

Too bad the celebs get the design credits- espeacially when others do the work.

julie on

Really Leslie??? You’re dismissive and patronzing that someone thinks Louis Vuitton is a luxury brand….get a M*****R F*****G LIFE!!!Why don’t you save your outrage for a genocide…or at least a upper class tax hike.

Swag on

So will Vicky B give up her Hermes bag?

Megan T on

What does a waif know about “curves of a woman’s body???”

najwa almarfadi on

she so fascinating

Lotzadoggies on

Who cares? And:… Who cares?

steve on

A photo of Victoria Beckham smiling, by a paparazzi would be worth thousands. Come on guys.

katie on

good for her!

Katherine on

Megan T, I’m with you. She talks about the sensual curves of a woman’s body and then the article goes on to reference Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz, who have teenage boy figures, not curvy woman figures.

Bella on

She has the most unique style and her collection so far is really stylish and chic. It is almost as if all celeb women are currently following her style sense wearing the figure defining dresses and the louboutin heels. Go Victoria!

Mimi on

It looks like an imitation of a Hermes. I’m disappointed it’s not more original.

Donna on

Sure I can just see a man carrying this handbag as a travel bag, especially a rough and tough soccer player, dream on honey, don’t think so. Anything he’d carry you’d fit into! Gain some weight, your bones are not attractive even if some of your dresses are, you need things that cover your shoulders and arms and most of your legs to look attractive

Heather on

Is it just me, or do several of those bags seem reminiscent of the Kate Spade “Sam” bag? Anyone have any idea what her price points are like on them?

Laura on

Victoria has successfully established herself in the fashion world. I LOVE her designs! She is classy and seems like a nice, caring, sweet person! I personally wish her all the best with her beautiful new line of bags! :)

Sky on

LOL…. search ” Ec4bag ” on google to get the same designer bags with Karolina. ” Ec4bag ” is just for fashion ladies, wow! Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Fendi, Coach, Miu Miu, Dior, Hermes, Chloe, Dolce & Gabbana

Julie on

I love this photo of her — she looks more beautiful here than I’ve ever seen her! I think it’s how natural she looks.

Nina on

I love that pink purse!!

Michael Fenelon on

Doesn’t she EVER smile? Is she depressed or chronically angry?

Victoria needs to eat something because she is delusional. The bag pictured here is a classic style in what looks to be alligator, but she is way out to lunch to say that “her bags will be as good as the Birkin”. Hermes has the best craftsmanship, that only Bottega Veneta can compete with (according to Hermes). Also, Hermes has been around since 1837, a large part of why they make amazing quality and pricey products that for some items have a cult following…the Birkin.

To Jade: you wrote unfortunately you are plus size. you are beautiful no matter what size. its the designers who are unfortunate and too retarded to realize that we come in all sizes, not just the toothpick size that they design for.

Jon on

That’s nice to all hear & see!

She has such great style and the bag is BEAUTIFUL! I just really wish that it would be a line that the majority of people could afford.

Me on

Wow…I wish her well. She is classy and always put together. I hope her line is affordable.

Why the hate…perhaps they are ‘as good as a birkin’ without the overhead…she should know, she has more than a few :) Perhaps she just meant for the average consumer who can’t afford a birkin…that crowd is larger than those that can :)

Tess on

Why does everyone have to hate? She is a great designer and an incredible dresser. I have to admit that I’m jealous of her, but I’m not going to diss her.

Tess on

And I love, love ,love exposed zippers. So cute!

Moon on

What a great comment, Me of September 13! At least you have brains and use it well unlike VB’s haters here! She doesn’t say that her bag will overturned the Birkins, but like Me said, her bag will be much, much more affordable than the Birkins and they are AS GOOD AS a Birkin! And please..this is NOT THE FIRST TIME THAT SHE HAS DESIGNED HANDBAGS..you all should see her collection for Samantha Thavasa (Japanaese company) – they are so cool!!

Victoria’s bags are great and she is a beautiful, talented, and extremely smart business woman. OK people if you didn’t know, she was popular BEFORE david….for all u idiots who think shes big because of him. It’s more the other way around. They are both good together now. And she has always had great style since forever. It’s not her design team…its HER who comes up with the ideas and yes her team WORKS together, but its not like she doesn’t do anything and simply stamps her name on it. Ugh so annoying to read things like this from idiots who dont know anything.

Carlucci on

What a striking post! I am just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well – resources like this blog are quite helpful. As our company is based in the US, it’s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is beneficial in that case.

Appreciate it for this grand post, I am glad I found this internet site on yahoo.

dota 2 heroes on

Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Opera. Superb Blog!
