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.

Philipp Plein’s Women’s and Men’s Spring/ Summer 2019 Fashion Show

platinum

Published

on

Chris Brown, dance-duo Ayo and Teo, rapper 6ix9ine and the wild cast of Cirque Le Soir all perform on a giant mirrored table seating 180 VIP guests… Welcome to Philipp Plein’s Spring/Summer 2019 extravaganza. It’s going to be a real thriller.

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the global Philipp Plein brand and to warm up for this incredible milestone, Plein creates a tribute to one of his lifelong heroes: Michael Jackson. On a mirrored runway surrounded by mirrors – tonight everyone is the Man in the Mirror – the iconic symbols of the King of Pop, from his gloves and hats to those Billie Jean socks, are given the full Plein treatment. Cue a military-meets-rock’n’roll collection embellished with paillettes, precious stones, fringing, studs, skulls and crystals in black and white gold.

The collection – worn by a supermodel line-up of 30 Smooth Criminals and 30 Dirty Dianas – features favourite Plein fabrics like distressed leather and denim, shiny latex and gold-leafed python. Multi-belts hung around the waist, buckled leather gloves and boots, straps and armbands all inject the serious rebel attitude of Bad. Merging street style with formal looks, the men’s section slides effortlessly from leather quilted tracksuits and sleeveless tour t-shirts to drummer-parade jackets and Dangerous-style monochrome suiting and fedoras. Similarly, the women’s wardrobe mixes skin-tight denim and biker jackets with upscale eveningwear like figure-hugging gowns worn with oversized men’s sparkling jackets and, for the ultimate in show-stopping glamour, bejeweled Janet Jackson bodice dresses.

Two decades ago, at the beginning of the brand, the first piece that Philipp Plein made was a hand-customised military parka and, with it, the street couture phenomenon was born. Returning to those roots, this season there are camouflage hooded parkas and field jackets decorated in patches and metallic detailing throughout the collection.

Spring/Summer 2019 is a personal story for Philipp Plein and a crowning moment for the King of Fashion. This season, he is making history. So come and celebrate with Rita Ora at the after-party.
