Described as “a celebration of optimism, innocence and lightness,” 2013 spring sollection by Stella McCartney is a playful mix of textures, colors and prints like striking leopard in bold shapes. McCartney‘s spring tailoring is elongated, matched with vibrant fluorescent floral and geometric textures. Pumpkin, mandarin, and mango print canvas complete the silhouette.
The oversized print t-shirt in linen canvas is paired with a pleated cotton pique shirt and an aertex skirt. Leopard print is layered in a head-to-toe look; a canvas jacket, a fine gauge knit legging and crew neck sweater are worn with a pointed wedge shoe.
For evening delicate silk cotton lace pieces are lined with fringes creating layers of transparency. Fringing is blunt cut and cropped for graphic effect. Calico, off white and cream fringe layers are encased underneath a minimal lace t-shirt.
Accessories mimic prints in the collection. Faux alligator is combined with leopard print canvas as well as madras check in totes, flat clutches and shoulder strap bags. The new Boo bag in slouchy shapes features a linked mesh chain detail in rose gold and antique silver brass in biodegradable faux suede, faux leather and embossed croc printed fabrics. The Falabella is updated in with fringes in a biodegradable suede. A pointed toe, low wedge shoe with a notched incision in solid pop colors.
