In the past 15 years, Stella McCartney has spearheaded the ideal of modern luxury within the womenswear domain with her casual elegance and relaxed sophistication. After training at Savile Row while at Central Saint Martins, designing the Team Great Britain 2012 Olympics uniforms, and all the while establishing her authority with her eponymous womenswear label, this year set a benchmark for the British designer when she concentrated her sartorial sensibilities into delivering an impressive menswear line. In a brief interview with Interview magazine, Stella McCartney shed some light on her design process, who some of her muses are and the biggest surprises and challenges she encountered.

On the significance of wardrobe staples in menswear:

“One of the aspects of menswear I find so fascinating is the emphasis on staples (and comfort) in every man’s wardrobe, all across the world. We all have those kinds of staples—just like in our diet here in England—everyone has a sort of universal wardrobe ingredient. We all have our limitations; we all have the box that we’ve placed ourselves in with our wardrobes of pieces we are comfortable wearing. And, with men, there is more of a sense of uniform and a level of allegiance to specific pieces, a specific way of dressing. And because it’s so much more established with men, I’m intrigued to see how far one can go outside of their comfort zone.”
