Stella McCartney: Ready-to-wear AW16
Stella McCartney’s show was all about signature Stella. What does that mean? Well it’s less about an actual item of clothing – although obviously there were plenty of them – and more about a mood or attitude. There was plenty of attitude on the soundtrack, pumping out an ode to veganism (yep, for realz) as Stella’s always meat-free collection trod out on open-backed, low-heeled shoes. The attitude in Stella clothing is real: clothes for women to wear in everyday life, making an impact on the catwalk but also in your wardrobe (and on your bank balance). This time her cuddly short-cropped quilted bombers and ruffly sweat shirting dresses were the ones that looked set to run the mile from runway to retail with great ease. And speed.
