Victoria Beckham impressed at New York Fashion Week with a boyish yet fine-tailored feminine collection.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour led fashionistas through minus 12 degree-Celsius weather inside to warm up in the neo-Renaissance surroundings of the Cipriani event space in Manhattan’s financial district for Beckham’s autumn/winter 2016 show.

Models wore checks, houndstooth and stripes in a collection that showcased Beckham’s increasingly sophisticated personal style.

Her husband David sat in the front row, with daughter Harper on his lap and his sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz looking dapper to his left.

Beckham’s answer to the cold weather was layering, and spaghetti strap dresses were paired with luscious ribbed knits, checked double-breasted coats with ribbed sleeves and knitted leggings.

The black-and-white palette was livened up with orange, green, browns and blues, with stunning fur bags as accessories.

“I don’t know what to say, I feel overwhelmed, so I’m really happy,” said the designer backstage.

Beckham will open a boutique in Hong Kong on March 18, her first in Asia.

Located in the Landmark, the impressive 2,200 sq ft interior was designed by award-winning London-based architect Farshid Moussavi.

“Asia is my fastest-growing market,” says Beckham. “I really love Asian women, I feel that they really understand fashion and it seems like the perfect place for the second store.”
