Victoria BeckhamWith three boys already and another baby on the way, no one would blame Victoria Beckham if she let her fashion career rest for a little while. But the former Spice Girl is actually hard at work on her next line, due to hit stores in spring 2012.

But it seems her ever-expanding family hasn’t been far from her thoughts. As she anticipates becoming mom to her first daughter, Beckham says she’s created her “most girly collection” to date.

There are bows and whimsical cat and cloud prints, but we shouldn’t expect anything too saccharine. Beckham says she’s also been inspired by the moody cartoon character Emily the Strange. So we can look forward to designs that are feminine, with a bit of edge to them. All the pieces will be made in Portugal, although Indian artisans will work to give selected items a few finishing touches.

Some of the purses in Victoria Beckham’s first collection with prohibitively expensive, so it’s refreshing to see her pledging that no item in the new range will cost more than a thousand dollars. That’s still not small change, but it’s a bit more attainable than that £8,950 hexagonal chain crocodile bag we all wanted! As the last collection generated $7 million, seven times more than was expected, perhaps she can afford to be a bit more generous!
