While a slew of designers expelling the excess priding monochromatic minimalism this season, designer Stella McCartney has returned to the runway with the joie de vivre of post-pandemic era style, one saturated with life, and color, flared trousers, bulbous from the knee down, and crystaled tall boots.
Directed and shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott at the Tate Modern museum in London, the glint and gleam of McCartney’s Fall/Winter found place amongst the Lichtenstein’s and the Gllagher’s, the Bourgeois’ and the Baselitz’s housed within their exhibitions. There was an aptness, an organic interplay between the modern art of our past and future with McCartney’s Fall/Winter collection.
“This season I wanted the Stella girl to shine,” she said pre-show. “This is a season to be explosive, and not to apologize for who you are, what you love and what you wear.”
Coming out of life mostly lived in limbo, McCartney gives us clothes very much for our right now – clothes to be seen in, not made for isolation. It’s a fantasia of gem tones, outsized flares, and some unerring blazers paired to a trouser, buttoned up-to-there, playing to the sophistication of a dragging hem. Not short on showstoppers, a dangerous sequined catsuits stoked the general yearning for life lived outside the house, and high-neck, bell-sleeved, canary minis, hardly falling to the knee, prefaced McCartney’s 30th look and final flare, a tulle pant embroidered with supple faux leather mosaics from top-to-toe.
“There was an energy I wanted to capture,” McCartney said of the collection. “It was a collection born out of wanting to feel alive, in the moment and brave.”
