fall prêt-à-porter, paris: stella mccartney
by Jeremy Danté
im always very interested to see which forms of minimalism stella mccartney will re-work, or re-introduce each season. as natasha poly opened the show, the collections palette was kept simple with black, white, neutral & navy as gold made an unexpected cameo in the otherwise more controlled, conservative palette. lightly sheer pieces were seen as exaggerated cuts on blazers allowed the collection to showcase both feminine & masculine appeal. long length coats made a powerful statement & allowed the collection to further deconstruct typical womenswear design. crinkled prints were seen on the collections dresses & gold pieces was seen through voluminous silhouettes. by far, the best creative element of this collection was the re-working of polka dots. combined with sheer textiles, innovation was seen with the concept of polka dots & quite impressively. overall, stella is no stranger to dope design or amazing collections. this season she follows up with another promising set.
