Victoria Beckham, the eponymous designer label, has teamed up again with Reebok, the fitness and lifestyle brand, on a new co-branded collection called Drop Four. A line of sportswear created for the street and the gym, Drop Four, is a phrase associated with fitness training, using drop sets, a technique for continuing an exercise after a workout by reducing the weight load for an additional set – or sets.
Each piece in the collection is vetted and personally worn by Victoria Beckham herself. The designer wants to ensure Drop Four reflects her vision of style, her love of sportswear, and the many hours spent in the gym.
“Reebok x Victoria Beckham is about clothes that make me feel confident, but that I don’t have to think too much about. I want true performance pieces for the gym, which have been meticulously designed to be adaptable and to move with me for all facets of my life.”
— Victoria Beckham, Creative Director
Scarlet red and burgundy are highlight colors, while soft camel and alabaster offer a sophisticated touch. Rounding out the palette is crisp, classic black, which is given a new, unexpected touch with high-contrast, yellow graphic branding.
Bold silhouettes set the tone for the season. Drop Four introduces more body-conscious styles with sharp yet subtle touches of branding, including the Logo Crop Top, with its flattering cutout detail, and the Logo Tight – both with a luxurious matte finish.
The Seamless Crop Top and Seamless Tight are Victoria’s personal favorites, thanks to their flattering shape and performance-level comfort. Each garment is knitted in one piece to avoid any seams disrupting a workout. For Drop Four, the range has been pushed even further with new ribbing that evokes the trims on vintage pieces.
Inspired by Victoria Beckham’s online community, the bestselling Japanese terrycloth Cowl-neck Jumper has returned, and the Travel Hoodie and Tight have been updated with a more relaxed, loungewear feel to suit a wider range of lifestyles. An outdoor sports-inspired collection wouldn’t be complete without a puffer jacket, and the down-filled thermal Cropped Puffer, merino-blend Neck Warmer, Gloves and Beanie are perfect for taking your workout outdoors.
Accessories include a utilitarian, convertible Tote Bag-Backpack and the new Mini Bag, another favorite of Victoria’s. For footwear, the focus is firmly on the Rapide, available in different color combinations, including a bold red, white and blue and vintage-inspired stucco, field and tan.
