Reinterpreting Stella McCartney’s signature masculine play on feminine silhouettes, exploring the multi-faceted wardrobe of a woman. Creating an optical illusion, zigzag and stripe motif in hot chili red, inky black and white is graphic. Printed onto a jacquard moiré, the striking multi-layered print effect appears in pyjamas and tiered dresses.
Deconstructed lingerie both reveals and conceals for an effortlessly sexy attitude. Slip dresses in dusty rose and turquoise are purposefully undone. A dress peels away whilst another has an open keyhole back revealing the lining and construction. Knitwear is boiled and stitched with lace detailing. Combining delicate femininity with sportswear and extending on the current collaboration, a classic Adidas Originals tracksuit with the iconic 3 stripes is spliced with panels of refined French lace.
Workwear has a feminine twist with cinched waists, ruffled hems and cuts that accentuate the figure. All in ones in a rich cotton damask emphasize the silhouette. Jackets are further feminized with a ruffle that kicks out from the hem. Tailoring this season is sharp and modern; incorporating piping detail, defined pristine lapels, and the signature Savile Row fit. Men’s shirting is reimagined as classic oxford shirts in traditional check and stripe poplin are patchworked together into mini dresses.
A mixture of animal prints; watercolour cheetah and leopard spots printed onto silk and featured on knitwear and ECONYL ® nylon outerwear blur to give the appearance of camouflage. A Fur Free Fur coat is cut into patches of varying fur lengths and stitched back together.
New additions to the washed denim movement come in a mix of blue and grey styles. Ball gown inspired dresses in crumpled, gold lurex cut against the softer tones of the rest of the collection in fabric that is puffed and later pressed, giving it a papery, delicate feel.
Introducing the new sustainably designed Loop trainers featured across both men’s and women’s collections. Innovatively created to be 100% recyclable without the use of glue, substituted instead with specially designed hooks and a rubber sole made of bio TPU from renewable resources. Loop is a sporty sock boot that hugs the foot with knitted lace uppers that rise above the knee or sit at the ankle. Alter-nappa thigh-high stretch boots add an edge of sexy sophistication with pin-thin heels. The Eclypse trainer is updated in tonal alter-nappa and leo-camo print.
From day to evening, the Stella Star bag from mini to holdall sizes in quilted alter-nappa with a metallic brass star closure. Foldover Flo bags in Skin Free Skin patchwork combinations. Fur Free Fur animal print logo totes echo a ready-to-wear coat. Enamelled and brass earrings with cut spherical details and bobbled sculptural shapes come in lacquered inky black, white, dusty pink cameo rose, light turquoise, and hot chili red.
