Stella McCartney mixed utility style with free flowing fabrics during its Autumn/Winter 2019 show in Paris.
Known for her feminine tailoring with an edge, the London-born designer tapped into signature Stella McCartney style for her latest collection.
Taking to the runway at Paris Fashion Week at the Opéra Garnier, she presented her ‘Winter Défilé’ collection (which translates to Winter Parade) that she tied in with her #ThereSheGrows campaign.
Across the line, billowing fabrics with loose strands were worn over skin-tights, knee-high platform boots. This dynamic also played out on floating gowns with rigid bib-like panels down to the shoulders, and loose-fitting suits paired with tight fit Wellington boots.
Details came in the form of excessively long belts that fell down to models’ ankles. These were worn over dresses and coats. From one-pieces to oversized pocket details, McCartney played into the utility trend, too.
Accessories meanwhile came in the form of dangle earrings that finished just above models’ chests and cylinder bags in a variety of sizes.
Colour wise, autumnal shades of forest green and amber were the most striking across the range, but greys, blacks and even the odd multicoloured garment featured, too.
