Fashion is ever-changing, but the industry can always count on sustainability pioneer Stella McCartney to be unwavering in her mission. And the designer’s Fall/Winter 2020 runway show at Paris Fashion Week was of course no different, with McCartney’s animal-free, no-fuss aesthetic on full display as she sent down a streamlined collection anchored by vegan leather, textured outerwear and a smattering of printed sets.
Menswear in particular was dominated by the label’s clean styling, highlighting pieces like fuzzy grey V-neck sweaters, cream and navy turtlenecks and charcoal-colored top coats to suggest a quintessentially British yet modern wardrobe. Paired with dark slacks and minimalistic black loafers, it presented a slick and effortless take on the designer’s latest interpretation of tailoring. Meanwhile, the women’s assortment encompassed the bulk of print and pattern, showcasing McCartney’s affinity for buffalo plaid and geometric shapes in the coming season.
To stress its animal-free ethos, the brand even garnished its FW20 showcase by enlisting people to dress just like animals themselves. Greeting guests with “baby trees,” as Vogue reported upon entering the venue, the playful cows, horses and more offered a poignant reminder that Stella McCartney’s overarching message has always spanned much farther than clothes.
