Stella McCartney had New York in the Seventies on her mind for prefall 2015, with a collection that toyed with an autumnal palette fused with a quiet Uptown timelessness, courtesy of voluminous silhouettes, shaggy textures, opulent prints and metallic adornments.
Wool felt berets and ribbed knits offered the season a Love Story nostalgia, while undone tuxedos, strapless tops, flared pants and bow motifs also spoke of the retro era. At Stella McCartney sustainability is always in season and this collection featured Patagonia sustainable wool, organic fabrics, biodegradable rubber soles and eco alter nappa. Metal elements also came into play as brass rings finished a black cady tunic worn with utility trousers and earrings that mirrored the same shapes. To finish serrated rubber soles completed sporty lace-ups or the monk strap derby, while the Noma bag’s soft shape was edged with a luxe double braided gold chain strap.
