Who: Her pop-star past has been eclipsed by the success of Beckham's womenswear line.
Why now: The SS13 collection marked her fourth year with a move to softer silhouettes.
The hot pieces: Button-down silk blouses and pillar-box red maxi skirts for day. Lace-insert sheath dresses and second-skin pants are after-dark show stoppers.
The designer’s take: “I wanted to challenge myself with tailoring, exploring how a woman connects emotionally with clothes.”
