We never would’ve pegged Victoria Beckham as a crystal lover. She seems so left-brained and rational – an ambitious, goal-oriented model of efficiency. But a quick Google search and a glance at her new Pre-Fall collection prove otherwise.

Beckham reports that she keeps crystals in her homes and that she’s bought them for all of her team; according to the Daily Mail, she uses crystals backstage in a pre-show ritual designed to bring good fortune. This season, she’s incorporated them into her accessories offering, making pendant necklaces and charms to suspend from belt loops or bags.

“It’s very personal and something I believe in. I think it’s a nice touch.”

Among the other things she believes in for Pre-Fall are a chunky wool sweater in a mélange yarn worn with glossy burgundy leather pants, a lilac suede short-sleeved jacket and matching lilac suede flares, an emerald green bias-cut silk dress with a sexy open back, and an asymmetrical, off-the-shoulder dress tailored from navy men’s suiting material. Beyond those standouts, the impression was of a day-to-night wardrobe that’s super-luxurious but not ostentatious, and minimal but not severe by any stretch. While Beckham’s clothes aren’t trendy, they feel current nonetheless. That’s down to the proportions (see: the long, pooling trousers; the modest high necks), the emphasis on knits of all kinds, and to an unexpected, quite vivid palette that pairs mint with rust, as one example.

Speaking of goals, Beckham met a big one last month when she announced a new round of financing to the tune of $40 million. She says she’ll be zeroing in on her retail presence and e-commerce in 2018.
