Victoria's Beckham's new collection for Estée Lauder is a ''tongue in cheek nod'' to the Spice Girls.

The 42-year-old fashion designer - who was known as Posh Spice in the iconic girl band - joined forces with the longstanding cosmetics company last year and launched her second Spring/Summer 2017 make-up line for the brand on Thursday (09.02.17), which includes a bronzer titled Saffron Sun and Nude Spice lipstick, and the mogul has revealed the product names were a play on the nicknames given to her and her band members.

Speaking to Vogue.co.uk about her latest venture and the inspiration behind it, the brunette beauty said: ''It's a little tongue-in-cheek nod to my days as Posh Spice of course, but it's also tied in to the theme of the whole collection - these rich and sumptuous spice-inspired shades of amber and saffron.''

And the creative mastermind - who set up her eponymous label in 2008 - believes people have associated smoky eye-shadows and natural lipstick shades with her, which encouraged the fashion icon to create ''authentic'' items that were true to her style preferences.

She explained: ''I think there are some beauty looks that people associate with me - a smoky eye, a pale lip - so it was important that we spent time fine-tuning until we had an authentic-feeling product. I spend a lot of time with my customers in my stores and at events all over the world, and I really do listen to them. I have always taken on board what they want from their clothes, and now I am also learning what they want from their beauty products. After the launch of the first collection, we noted that some women would like to see a lighter, more golden shade of bronzer.''

Victoria - who has children Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 11, and Harper five, with her husband David Beckham - has gushed about her partnership with cosmetics brand and has admitted it has always been her ''long-held dream'' to collaborate with them.

She said: ''Creating the first collection with Estée Lauder was the culmination of a long-held dream for me, so when we received such an overwhelmingly positive response from customers and retailers it made sense for us to revisit and develop the collaboration.''
