Victoria and David Beckham are no strangers to Los Angeles. The two once called it home, and in many ways, the private dinner at Freds in Los Angeles on Tuesday night celebrating her debut spring 2015 season with Barneys New York was an inauguration of the designer’s influence over the fashion landscape, well beyond L.A. As people took their seats among the long tables adorned with white linens and blooms, Victoria raised a glass thanking her dinner guests, who included close friends and supporters, and familiar faces, many of whom were fellow Brits, including Burberry’s Christopher Bailey, Kate Beckinsale, and the most recent L.A. transplants, James Corden with his wife, Julia Carey. The dinner, which was a decidedly spring fare of heirloom tomatoes, halibut with fresh local corn, and truffle fries, took place outside on the terrace. Other guests such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Eva Longoria, Rose Byrne, Irene Neuwirth, Rachel Zoe and Rodger Berman, Lisa Love, and Cassandra Grey, enjoyed conversations outside in the rather mild April weather. LA Galaxy soccer player Robbie Rogers also caught up with former player, David, about the season (soccer that is).
Victoria, dressed in a white long-sleeved sheath from her own collection, of course, has solidified her point of view and aesthetic as a mixture of sophistication and timelessness with attention to construction and quality. She fondly recalled one of her first ever shopping memories at Barneys when she came to Los Angeles with the Spice Girls. “One of the first trips that Virgin Records ever took us on was to Los Angeles and it was just five girls, we had never been here; they gave us money, a styling budget, and they sent us out to Barneys to go shopping.” Needless to say her trip has stuck with her over the years, and perhaps there is no better way to celebrate her long history and personal connection with Barneys than selling the Victoria Beckham Collection right here in the very store where she got her very first taste of the L.A. shopping experience.
