Stella McCartney Summer 2019

platinum

Published

on

Bringing together strength and softness, celebrating the bold and the feminine, Summer 2019 encapsulates the laid-back attitude of the quintessential Stella McCartney woman.

A spectrum of washed-out neons and dirty pastels—from bleached fluro lemonade to spearmint—feel classically Stella, eased with splashes of light khaki, nude and dream blue. These refreshing, highly-charged hues herald summer.

Swim-inspired jumpsuits in second-skin neoprene cover the body with wallpaper florals. Their silhouettes feel at once athletic and polished. Boyfriend blazers in lightweight linen and sustainable viscose are thrown over vivid organic cotton tie-dye T-shirts, offering a new perspective on summer tailoring. Knitted lace becomes commanding in orange and bright teal.

Organic denim becomes a statement as a jumpsuit and wide-legged trousers are finished with graphic ocean blue tie-dye. Knitwear is relaxed and undone, as chunky melanges, sliced openings and raw seams drape effortlessly. This natural ease continues through handworked yarns, oversized buttons and embroidered twill inserts.

Masculine meets feminine as cargoes and flight suits are borrowed from the boys. A football shirt in a soft, fine-gauge knit falls loosely, a structured shirt is constrained to emphasise the body and a shell suit is presented in pale blue ECONYL® recycled nylon.

Weightless dresses with soft pleats and short hemlines feel ethereal and effortlessly sexy, while slip dresses are enhanced with customisable extensions. A glittering lurex dress in sustainable viscose is modernised with elasticated shirring and flowing sleeves.

Shoes complement the ready-to-wear palette, presented in soft pastels and nudes. Ballet flats are reinterpreted with unstructured fabrics, pull-tie ruching and chiselled toes. T-bar sandals are barely there and wavy waxed-cord flats further reflect the details of the clothing. The signature Eclypse sneaker is reinvented in bleached fluro orange.

For men, the palette, tie-dye effect and strong tailoring continue throughout, with a subtle difference in attitude. Trousers and drawstring shorts are covered in all-over florals, while jackets and trenches get the summer treatment in airy technical cotton twill.

Bags continue the relaxed mood in canvas and slouchy Eco Alter-Nappa. The Stella monogram cluster bags are made for every eventuality in both mini and maxi sizes and drawstring museum totes are elevated with saddle-stitch straps. On jewellery, music notes, a heart, a star and a cannabis leaf make for playful charms. Turbo-wrap sunglasses are amped-up in sporty colours.

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.
