David Beckham might have picked Miami as the home for his new Major League Soccer franchise team, but his famous wife doesn’t seem sold on the city.
Speaking to the Associated Press Sunday after her New York Fashion Week runway show,Victoria Beckham, once known as a Spice Girl, made it clear Miami is not her next home.
“Just because David has a club in Miami doesn't mean we are moving to Miami,” she said. “We're based in London and that's where the kids go to school.”
In fact, Victoria Beckham spoke about building a stronger presence in New York. Meanwhile, her husband is spending plenty of time in Miami seeking a site for a new stadium to be built for the team. Beckham has not said his family was moving here, but he has received a warm welcome.
On Sunday, David Beckham attended his wife’s runway show accompanied by the couple’s four children. He snapped “selfies” of himself and his toddler daughter while waiting for mom’s big moment.
Seated next to the Beckham family was Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
On the runway, Victoria Beckham presented a fall collection based on the idea, in her words, that: “Everything is not what it seems.”
“It's all 360 degrees — nothing is flat,” she said in a post-show interview backstage. “You look at a structured coat from the front, and then from the back you see this beautiful pleat. Or you're looking at a dress, and then the whole back is missing.”
The collection was almost entirely black and white, with an emphasis on ruffles and pleats, and a fondness for a single gold chain draped across a garment.
Beckham said she was trying to incorporate changes in her clothes, but not so much as to alienate her customer base.
“It's about satisfying my sense of creativity, but also giving our customer what she wants,” she said.
