London Fashion Week kicked off on Friday, where esteemed British designers are currently showing their Fall 2019 collections. This is always an opportune time for us to bookmark the trends we'll be shopping for our Autumn/Winter wardrobes, as local retail stores have already packed a few of their A/W items on the rails. 

Because as we've said before; winter wardrobes are made in summer.

That said, a ready-to-wear runway show that caught our attention and sparked a need to shop it, is Victoria Beckham's "An A-Z of a woman's life" collection.

With a lot of vibrant colours - mainly red - adding personality and spicing up the VB woman's style this season, Posh Becks describes this woman as one who's "a lady, but she’s not ladylike. She’s proper, but she’s not prim.”

This description makes for a "relatable content" kind of collection, and adding to this is the observation Vogue made about how VB played with the subliminal psychology of colours.

Amid all the gloomy greys and brooding browns, the fashion bible notes how "zingy scarlet stretch-leather spike-heeled boot [were] an instant mood-lifter."

Not to mention that the colours we wear do sometimes communicate something about our personalities and VB made sure to incorporate a hue for everyone.

I guess this means we didn't really leave colour-blocking in 2012 then, so this pair of yellow court heels is well worth your pennies.
