Stella McCartney Show- Men's and Women's Collection Autumn/Winter 2018/19 in Paris (with interviews)

Designer: Stella McCartneyInspiration: at the Opéra de Paris, as always, Stella presents her new Autumn 2018 collection based around reworked basics, with sought after femininity and sensuality and men who show alongside women for the first time. Collection: tailoring is the central point, presented in a fluid way, with long jackets worn as dresses over trousers, or a masculine version revisited, with ensembles made from typically masculine materials such as tweed or tartan. The reconstructed slip dress, made from pieces of old wedding dresses, re-embroidered by hand. The always soft knitwear appears as ensembles, a huge asymmetric jumper is worn over a lace skirt, or patchwork style, enveloping, in shades of beige and chocolate. To note: the collaboration with British artist J H Lynch and her portraits of women in the sixties, appearing under a layer of tulle or lace. & the research into cruelty-free materials with organic denim, faux fur, or even the new trainers made in a way that doesn’t involve the use of glue. Interviews: Stella: Having studied in England in Saville Row with men’s tailoring, it was really about exploring what we do so well, for women and men now! But also for re-looking at the inside, the part of the garment that’s close to your heart that’s more sensual, more emotional, the softer side of tailoring and deconstructing it and really exploring the whole thing. We want to dress women and we want to dress men. We want to dress real people in an effortless way here at Stella McCartney, and I really wanted to look at why would you come to us, there’s so many houses in the world and we really wanted to see what we were honestly as a brand and we always have a sense of humour, we don’t take ourselves too seriously, but at the same time to bring in this artist with these beautiful women to celebrate women, quite an exotic kind of sensual paintings and the colour palettes being a little more dark. 2% of plastic is recycled and 1% of fashion is recycled so we have a LOT of work to do. I think at the end of the day the consumer is the one who will make the fashion houses pay attention, look at how they’re manufacturing, look at how many animals they’re killing in the name of fashion. It’s time, it’s time to re-consider this industry and the impact it’s having on the planet. Stefi: I really like what she stands for, I’ve had the opportunity to work with them for different events so this is a first for me and it’s an honour.
