Fans immediately recognise Victoria Beckham's new £450 belt – from their parents' wardrobes


So that’s where you got your latest belting idea! Fans immediately recognise Victoria Beckham’s new £450 belt – from their parents’ wardrobes

  • Victoria Beckham posed with belt as part of ensemble from her winter collection 
  • Dean Adams shared snap of mother’s belt from 1973 – a near-identical version
  • Irene Lane, 80, from Lancashire, also thought distinctive clasp looked familiar
  • Victoria said belt inspired by Paris and design appears to originate from France 

Her old band don’t mind recycling favourites to keep the fans happy – so perhaps it’s no surprise that former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is going back in time to seek inspiration for her latest fashion must-have.

Fans who caught a glimpse of the singer-turned-designer’s £450 new belt immediately recognised the piece – from their parents’ wardrobes.

Dean Adams, from Southend, posted a snap on Twitter of a near-identical version of the belt, saying: ‘Victoria Beckham… where was it you said you took “inspiration” from? My mum’s belt from 1973.’

Hands on: Victoria Beckham poses in her new belt on Instagram. She posted: 'So ready to be wearing my winter wardrobe! This look is one of my favourites from the #VBAW20 collection'

Irene Lane, 80, from Lancashire, thought the distinctive clasp looked familiar. ‘As soon as I saw Victoria’s belt, I knew I had a similar one,’ she told The Mail on Sunday. 

‘My mother-in-law bought it for me from a department store in Manchester 30 years ago but it only cost her £15.’

Opinion was divided among Ms Beckham’s 28 million Instagram followers on the belt, after she posed with it as part of an ensemble from her winter collection that costs a hefty £3,500.

One said it looked like ‘chicken feet were cut off and painted’, while another called it ‘adorable’. 

Victoria said the belt (similar version above) was inspired by a visit to Paris

There are dozens of vintage ‘clasping hand belts’ listed on website Etsy, an online marketplace for hand-made goods. They range in price from as little as £60 to £350.

Since its launch in 2008, the Victoria Beckham label has been a hit with critics and celebrities alike.
