Reebok announced its partnership with Victoria Beckham late last year, and since then, we’ve all awaited details on what to expect in the iconic collaboration. In an intimate dinner last April in Los Angeles, the Reebok team and longtime ’90s icon and supporter of the brand Shaquille O’Neal officially welcomed Beckham into the Reebok family. During a brief Q&A before we sat for dinner, Beckham shared what she’s most looking forward to designing with the Reebok team. “I’ve wanted to create workout clothing for a long, long time. I work out every day, and when I go into a new category, I want it to be something that I want in my life. So when Reebok approached me, I was very excited. I’ve wanted to create a trainer for quite some time,” she said.
In celebration of the partnership, Reebok x Victoria Beckham released a mini collection of merch that was available for an exclusive amount of time, which included an extremely comfortable pair of white sneakers (or trainers, as VB calls them) and a limited-edition T-shirt that was available in black and white. Through these teaser pieces, Beckham really wanted to celebrate all things ’90s with a nod to Shaq and his legendary basketball career. Beckham and Shaq are wearing the tee in the photos below, which is available on Reebok’s and Victoria Beckham’s sites.
While this was only a sneak peek for Victoria’s full line with Reebok which launched today, the former Posh Spice hinted at a focus on “technical workout clothing with a great silhouette and great branding and not overly complicated.” As for the trend that you won’t see in the line? Beckham shared, “I don’t understand backless workout clothing. I like workout clothing that is technical and great to work out in.” Say no more. Whatever VB says goes in our book.
