Remember when Beckham went everywhere in matching clothes?

Written by Oscar Holland, CNN

Dig into the pop culture history archive, “Remember When?” is the CNN Style series which offers a nostalgic look on celebrity clothing that defines their era.

The first digital fashion week in London starts today, offering the ideal opportunity to reflect on where British fashion is going – and how far it has gone.

And when we look back on the country’s recent history of style, there is one couple who embodies the evolution of fashion: David and Victoria Beckham.

Today, Victoria’s fashion label is a credible fashion week kit, and David is a dapper style icon, but not always. For one thing, who can forget when they go everywhere in matching clothes?

Around the turn of the millennium, you cannot open a newspaper in the UK without seeing the coordinated Posh and Becks approach to what we now know as #couplegoals.

At the 2001 screenplay of the cult film “Withnail and I”, they chose head-to-toe chocolate, with David wearing the wrong Matrix-style raincoat.

Two years later, at the MTV Movie Awards, they went for a fine jewel encrusted white ensemble (later enshrined by Madame Tussauds). Then, of course, there was a couple’s wedding in 1999, where they married cream before turning purple to cut their cakes with unnecessary large swords.

But, just a few weeks before, there was a more coordinated iconic fashion moment.

It was Beckham Mania’s highlight when the supercouple stepped head-to-toe at a Versace party in London. Victoria will start recording the third Spice Girls album, and David has just helped Manchester United claim the English and European championships. Their first son, Brooklyn, was just born, and the couple recently bought a comfortable family home dubbed “Beckingham Palace” by the media.

With a nod to the host that night, suitable clothes were made by Versace. The jacket and combo pants – shiny enough to reflect the paparazzi’s light, and tighter than expected in the loose 90s – stole the attention and splashed into the newspaper the next day.

It is often overlooked that the outfit is not very suitable for this season. After all, it’s mid-June (although summer in the UK is often so light that you can wear all the skin without sweating too much). Perhaps that explains why David and Victoria chose to lower the zippers from their strapped collars, leaving the smallest flash of skin peering through the effective keyhole neckline.

However, for such a brave appearance, it was almost entirely empty of attitude. They looked like a pair of friendly motorcyclists who stopped by a British village pub for orange juice. Floppy-haired David – who finished the outfit with a pair of flat shoes with flat toes – didn’t even look convinced by his initial idea.

There was darkness in his eyes that night, as if he knew one day he would regret the decision. And indeed, he did.

“Wow, we really did this,” he wrote Instagram, posting an iconic image to mark her 2017 wedding anniversary. She elaborated in H&M magazine soon after: “They are Versace. But that is when I look back and say, ‘What do we think?’ We laugh about it. I remember it very well until you did it as a couple. “

Victoria, however, does not want to deny the past. “I have never looked back and cringed at anything,” he told Grazia in 2018.

And why does he have to do it? For one, as a respected owner – though consistently unprofitable – fashion label, Posh now has a sufficient reputation as a designer to avoid questions about prior clothing choices.

But maybe even more important: Clothes do exactly what they should.

Britain’s obsession with Beckham’s clothes may be partly driven by tabloids who sneered at the idea of ​​wasting new wealth, but publicity helped them. Even the most questionable outfits contribute to one of the exercises to build the most successful entertainment brands in the modern world.

The coordinated style helps couples transform themselves from the single Victoria Adams and David Beckham, to the collective “Posh and Becks”, a nickname that is so pervasive that added to Collins Short English Dictionary. Their ability to create a unified identity goes far beyond the capabilities of predecessors such as Hugh Grant and Liz Hurley, while laying the foundation for the coming super couple (and, unlike Bennifer, TomKat, and Brangelina, their relationship is also further away).

These days, Beckham takes a far more refined approach to twins. Their collective style has evolved from copying to complementary. Take the navy pickup they wear to Buckingham Palace in 2017, or the white tie attire worn on Meet Gala, where they are not seen out of place on the biggest stage of high fashion.
And of course, the skin is ugly, but at least not Britney and Justin in denim clothes bad.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
