PFW: Stella McCartney

By: Julia Smith
The androgynous look is one of the stronger trends that we are seeing in Paris Fashion Week, and Stella McCartney seemed highly influenced by this trend as well. Demonstrating it in her pinstripe pattern, long and narrow silhouettes and subtle and minimal makeup and hair.

The show opened with tailored pinstripe suits, which were also apparent in dresses and fit-and-flare tops. The material then become softer, with long sleeved silk dresses, and soft cashmere sweaters. Colour came in the cocoon coats, which have been a major piece for many collections however, they were overpowered by McCartney’s skirts, the way they twisted at the knee, which fluidity and added femininity to the otherwise masculine constructed garments.

Overall, a beautiful collection which made otherwise constructed and stiff garments beautiful movement, and we are sure to be seeing some of the pieces at next season!
