Stella McCartney Women’s Spring 2019 Collection

platinum

Published

on

Quintessential Stella codes; masculine tailoring, delicate lace and unexpected prints; a graceful touch of animal skin-free-skin in a color palette that celebrates spring, with sand and summery whites, pinks and blues.

Combined embroidery techniques fused into singular styles. Broderie Anglaise and eyelet embellishment inspired by antique linens become dresses. Polished short hemlines are paired with super soled trainers elongating the legs. Dramatically mini, skirts are slightly structured in a gentle A-line.

Tailoring in a mash-up of pinstripes deliberately cut to create a linear silhouette. A modern approach to tailoring with lean drainpipe trousers, a baggy pair with darted back and an unconventional trouser with shirt cuffs cinching the fabric at the ankle.

Photographic image of a moon rising over the ocean in a statement print on sustainable high shine viscose and worn as outerwear, tailoring, and a scarf that threads into a shirt dress which can be tied to constrain its volume. The printed scarf lining of a jacket falls out below the hem.

A bold Stella monogram logo print. Inspired by vintage luggage and trunks, the new logo print is stamped throughout the collection in knitwear, embroidered, or cut into fabric both in ready-to-wear and accessories. A colorful graphic ‘S’ print inspired by her mother’s style of mixing print and pattern combined into individual garments, an all in one spliced with zippers and a mini dress over trousers.

Fringe moves effortlessly draped on a white Skin-Free-Skin jacket and hangs from high hemlines, down the sleeves, and off the back of mini dresses with dramatic necklines for evening. Sustainable viscose tassels move fluidly in oversized and boyfriend cut jackets. Knitwear panels of different yarns, stitches and fringing in contrasting weights are patch worked together in rose red, soft camel, grey melange, and dolphin blue.

Staying true to Stella’s commitment to sustainability, a solvent-free polyurethane transparent material is introduced into the accessories Translucent heels are embellished with pearls and studs whilst loafers are worn low for ease. In its classic form, the Eclypse, a pumped up sneaker, becomes see through and elsewhere the sole is supersized. Slingback clogs and stretch boots in alter-nappa have exaggerated platform heights.

The monogram logo takes centre stage in accessories, variations appearing in each bag collection that echoes the ready-to-wear in sand coloured canvas, denim, and the environmentally friendly PVC-free transparent material. The monogram logo print is also featured on the Loop sneaker, designed using a technique of attaching the upper of the shoe to the sole without the use of glue.

Stella’s iconic Falabella chain is enlarged in bags and laid diagonally across styles in black alter-nappa, monogrammed canvas with black edging or denim with alter-nappa trim. Thick, webbed straps carrying the Stella McCartney logo are clipped onto shoulder bags and buckets.

A Patchwork Of Characters

platinum

Published

on

Suffused by a dynamic and diverse new spirit, a peerlessly exquisite historical Italian house suddenly echoes with life, laughter and youth again.

For Autumn Winter 2018 Salvatore Ferragamo presents neither one Ferragamo woman, nor one Ferragamo man – instead inviting a broad community of models to reflect the glorious multiplicity of today in a patchwork of characters under the creative direction of Paul Andrew. Shot by Harley Weir and featuring Stella Tennant, Shanelle Nyasiase, Rianne Van Rompaey, Xiao Wen Ju, Piero Mendez and Edoardo Sebastianelli, this milestone Ferragamo campaign represents a fresh page in the  house’s remarkable history.

The new ‘Ferragaristocracy’ as imagined by Andrew is defined by its commitment to progress – because to embrace change is the key to success in contemporary culture. Andrew says: “One of the original inspirations of the collection featured in this campaign was the Duchess of Devonshire – a formidable personification of old-school elegance and privilege. And her grand-daughter Stella inhabits that refreshed persona with an effortless grace. But in 2018 you don’t have to be to the manor born to have a compelling and stylish manner about you. Curiosity, taste and a breadth of vision – not a narrowness – is what counts today.”

Punchy colour, rich texture and flowing deformalized silhouettes punctuated with Andrew’s signature Ferragamo shoes, boots and accessories – starring the new Ferragamo Studio bag –  make up the grammar of Ferragamo’s revived visual language. Harley Weir deploys her realist’s eye and analogue authenticity to present an imagined house-party whose guests hail from across the globe. What’s brought them together? The newly-rebooted Salvatore Ferragamo aesthetic as defined by Andrew in partnership with Menswear Design Director Guillaume Meilland.

Andrew says: “I want Ferragamo to assert a distinctly special voice. The best way to do that is to be collaborative, inclusive and open – which is why I’m so excited to be working alongside talents like Guillaume, Harley, and this powerful cast of models. Together we’ve found a harmony that truly reflects the bold and positive change that’s afoot at Salvatore Ferragamo.”
