Stella McCartney’s collection was pretty delightful this morning at the Opéra Garnier in Paris. The longtime vegetarian designer delivered an upbeat moment with a show that was perfectly evened out between day and formal wear. McCartney has always been determined to make women look and feel good every day, and with this fall collection she did just that.
The runway showcased a girl power committed collection full of rich textures, pleated organza and bold checks designed in modernized shapes and silhouettes. McCartney re-edits our closet classics while sticking to neutrals and warm earthy tones of green, burgundy, sky blue and orange.
There were bold suiting, head-to-toe knit looks and one denim-on-denim ensemble; and an elongated blazer with square-toe shoes and enormous duffel-looking bag in camel. Another McCartney signature that always adds a touch of glamour and easy femininity were the lacy cotton sheer dresses.
Once again, there was a joyous finale where all the models went footloose and sang along to George Michael’s hit-song “Faith”- it seems that this will become McCartney’s new approach to closing her shows with an energetic dance, instead of the usual stiff parade.
