Stella McCartney hit Paris Fashion Week with a typically laid-back collection of sustainable clothing. McCartney’s first collection since becoming independent once again, Spring/Summer 2019 serves up an unsurprisingly wearable blend of women’s and men’s looks, often blurring the line between genders.
Loose trousers, neutral earth tones and pale tie-dye were at the core of the range, with sparse pops of color emboldening the otherwise ethereal palette. Boiler suits, blazers, flight pants and track gear was reworked with flowing natural fabrics and understated technical detailing, like snap-buttoned cargo pockets, attached D-rings and layered plackets. These outdoorsy looks were juxtaposed with floral-patterned shirts and dresses, accented with ruffles and warped zipper trails. Unlike more so-called “high fashion” runways, McCartney’s looks were defined by wearable silhouettes, comfortable layering pieces and slightly subverted wardrobe staples, like boxy tees and oversized trench coats, making for an appreciably accessible presentation.
