Maxime Simoens may have parted ways with French label Leonard earlier this month, but LVMH’s Bernard Arnault is reportedly investing in the young designer’s namesake line. Arnault’s usual acquisitions include international luxury brands such as Bulgari, which LVMH purchased last year—which makes Simoens an interesting investment choice. At this time, WWD could not obtain further details. [WWD]

Victoria Beckham’s latest collection, which she showed in New York on Sunday, presented a sportier side than we’ve seen from her in the past. Style.com already gave its full review of Beckham’s cheerleader skirts and rib jersey dresses a few days back, but here, check out this exclusive video (below) taken backstage at the show.
“Loose-fitting” was hardly a word associated with Victoria Beckham’s design aesthetic until September, when she debuted her newer and more affordable line, Victoria by Victoria Beckham, to a small group of editors in New York. To showcase the playful offerings in the Spring ’12 line, she enlisted filmmaker Quentin Jones (who she worked with on a video for her denim line last year).
“This collaboration is really exciting for me,” Beckham tells Style.com. “For the Victoria line I wanted to appeal to a slightly younger audience – super chic but with a sense of humour and an edge and that’s exactly what Quentin brought to the creative process. I really wanted to capture the essence of the playful feminine character at the heart of the collection and Quentin has realised that for me in her unique, innovative style.”
The video doesn’t launch in the windows at Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge, London, until January 30, but Style.com has the exclusive teaser, above.
