Is Victoria Beckham a magical being? Consider the evidence: ageless appearance, shape-shifting success, otherworldly allure. (Her signature half-smile is also somewhat telling, at least if similar grins on ancient goddess sculptures are clues.)
Now the fashion icon is leaning into her supernatural side, thanks to a series of crystals incorporated into her Pre-Fall collection. Available now online and at Dover Street Market, Beckham’s mystic accessories are meant to be worn as jewelry, or simply carried to ensure good vibes. She’s even included a hidden trouser pocket for concealed woo-woo weapons.
Wondering if her new gems can make us more powerful, or at least more likely to get snapped for street style, we emailed Mrs. Beckham for some definitive answers.
What was your first-ever crystal purchase? How did you wear it?
My first crystal was a black obsidian and I still carry it everywhere with me! I like to surround myself with positive energy, and so often have a little collection of crystals in my handbag. More recently though, I have been wearing the tri-stone pendant necklace—from my Pre Autumn Winter 2018 collection. [Wearing it] is a nice way to make sure I always have a crystal close by.
How else can we wear crystals and still look modern?
We clipped crystals onto belt loops, and included secret pockets for them on wide leg trousers—so you can carry charms wherever you go.
Do you have a crystal guru or a book you can recommend? How do you know so much about them?
I don’t think I could pinpoint just one source. It’s years of reading, plus recommendations from friends that have given me an understanding of the power of crystals. I really want to share some of that knowledge with my customers.
There are SO many kinds of crystals. How did you choose which kinds of stones (and energies) to include in this collection?
I started by looking at my own crystal collection, and thinking about what might be important to my customer. She’s strong and successful, and I wanted to offer something that could provide support navigating her career and her personal life… As with all my collections, I want to make my customer feel confident and secure, and for me adding crystals felt like a nice way to help do that.
What’s your current go-to for energy or cleansing?
My current go-to is a White Howlite crystal. It’s a calming gemstone that relieves stress, calms the mind, and relaxes the whole body.
What crystal do you recommend for more balance between work and home?
Yellow Calcite—it’s associated with positive energy that increases personal motivation and drive!
How about staying more connected in a romantic relationship?
I’d recommend the Rose Quartz, it’s known as the crystal of love.
I’d love to have more energy and less caffeine in my system. What’s the crystal for that?
The Tiger’s Eye energizes the body and rebalances it on all levels—it fuels courage, strength and will help you achieve your dreams.
