(AP) The tight ship Victoria Beckham seems to run at New York Fashion Week allowed her newest collection to sail smoothly down the runway Sunday morning.


For Beckham, there is no chaos or confusion. That goes for her small, insider-only runway show as well as the clothes she offers. She sticks to her vision: a chic, no-fuss approach to fashion.


Things are mostly black and white, and there is no adornment or embellishment. She does allow for the occasional pop of pink, which is impactful because of her restraint.


It's become the norm that David Beckham comes out a few moments before the show to shake a few hands, and then their toddler daughter Harper sits on his lap as the models go by. They, along with everyone else, get only a short peek at Victoria Beckham, who pops out for a quick wave and stays away from the cameras.


Beckham evolves her aesthetic slowly, and seems not to jump on trends too quickly. The clean lines, looser shapes and affinity to mix-and-match opposites that have been popular during these previews for next spring were here, but all done with Beckham's stamp of clean sophistication.


She turned out slim Bermuda shorts paired with rounded-shoulder coats, and sheer organza track jackets. A tunic-length, slip-style top with a little bounce at the bottom was worn with cropped trousers, and some of the best dresses were inspired by the waistband of a man's trouser.


"Exploring new proportions has allowed me to further develop my silhouette and I have set boyish elements against a sense of femininity that is manifested through the use of lines, waves and textured overlays," Beckham wrote in her notes.


There was a little flounce to some of the short skirts, and some had patches of pleats.


"What became most important to me was to convey a feeling of balance across the collection there is a sense of fluidity set against graphic structures and this, together with the merging of boy and girl sensibilities are key to my aesthetic for spring/summer," she said.
