Autumn/Winter 2014-15 Stella McCartney
If you’re in the market for a ski pant trouser suit then Stella McCartney will be your go-to come autumn.
And what Stella girl in her right mind wouldn’t want one of those huge tweedy slat ‘n’ pepper knits, all stretched out, with sleeves that extend way past fingertips? There was a panoply of them here this morning and they’re exactly the sort of thing her woman wants to pull on and skip out in, paired with nothing but bare honeyed skin, looking easy-breezy ravishing. They even came with matching knitted across body bags. (Stella isn’t the only designer exploring the concept of head-to-toe knit dressing, it’s shaping up to be a big trend).
This was an especially confident outing that tapped all that is good about McCartney’s repertoire: tailoring, need-it-now knits, and mini evening dresses with a sporty accent. That sportswear theme also came across via hiking rope fashioned into swirly appliqué across sweaters, she did the same thing with chunky silver zips too, recalling the work of British designer, Helen Storey.
There was also an inkling of arts and craft about this offering. The shredded hairy textures, lashings of looped silk tassels decorating dresses and sweaters, and even, right down to the tie-dye, which appeared printed on a silky trouser and tee combo and elsewhere worked into a jacquard on a parka. Lots that Stella girls will love.
