Achievement
Stella McCartney’s eponymous label solidified menswear and womenswear with forward-thinking initiatives like sustainability for 2018. Her Spring/Summer 2018 collection, themed under the idea of escapism, offered fashionable wares to a wide range of style adopters, while an exceptionally clean pair of Stan Smiths — made with vegetarian leather — targeted socially conscious individuals expecting more from their favorite brands. All achievements shine alongside the largest news from the designer and her label; Stella McCartney re-acquired 50% of the label’s ownership in March, when she took back the shares from luxury group Kering after a long-standing 17 year partnership.
