Stella McCartney clothing
Stella McCartney launched her own label in 2001 in collaboration with the Gucci Group. Her clothing brand includes eyewear, accessories, bags, the latest noharm vegan shoes, fragrances and an organic skincare range. Stella McCartney has 14 stores but the clothing line is sold in over 600 other stores worldwide in cities including London, Paris, Manhattan, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Beijing, and Kuwait. As well as the ready to wear clothes for women, she also created a partnership with Adidas in 2004 where she designed a range of sportswear for women of many sports which now include golf, tennis, yoga, gym, running, swimming, dance and winter sports.
In 2005 Stella McCartney designed a collection for the hugely popular H&M. This collection was immensely popular and sold out in no time. Being a vegetarian herself, you will not find any leather or fur among the collections of Stella McCartney clothes. Not content to sit back, the Stella McCartney line has recently announced that it will partner GapKids and BabyGap and will launch a collection of clothing in November 2009.
The Autumn/Winter Stella McCartney collection is full of fresh, youthful clothes which are right up to date with the latest styles and trends. There was a query on how Stella would tackle this season’s trend for tight leggings in leather fabrics or coats made from fur and she did not fail to deliver but true to her integrity, all leathers and furs were fake. She chose to go for fake leather not that you could tell the difference and replaced the huge fur coats with coats made from sheep’s wool.
She chose dresses which had the look of comfort but were still stunning show pieces. Known for her pieces with a feminine masculinity, Stella continued with this trend in her Autumn Winter 09 collection. There were manly yet sexy blazers teamed with beautiful silky trousers and many coats and jackets with belted waists epitomised the stylish chic clothing that she has become renowned for. In contrast to the harsh trends that have been surfacing this season, Stella opted for a softer approach to the Eighties styles which have been dominating collections.
Combining un-winter like soft dresses with a definite lingerie style with stunning cashmere coats made for an interesting yet diverse look. There were plenty of other very winterish coats and jackets in colours of blacks and reds such as riding coats and tweed jackets.
Many of the dresses were made from the sheerest chiffon and gave a completely nude look. Trousers were combined with beautiful silk blouses which complemented the cutaway sides of the trousers which had lace inserts. This provided for stunning looks on the runway. To finish off her collection, Stella McCartney outdid this season’s fur coat by showing her shrug coat which was an awe-inspiring, eye-catching piece covered in beads and brought down the show.
For every fashion conscious young woman, there is no doubt that Stella McCartney’s Autumn Winter Collection 09 has some of the most up to date trends with her characteristic stylish, chic amazing clothes.
The environmental Noharm trend is now followed by Stella with her new collection of shoes. Stella McCartney Organic Collection launched in 2008 with her jackets and oversize coats, now gives its echo contribution with the stylish Noharm shoes of Vegan range.
