Leave it to Stella McCartney to create a timeless, refined and most of all, confident collection. This collection summed up where Stella’s at right now and the Paris season with its honest approach and confident spirit, its reconfiguring of boy-meets-girl clothes.She explained backstage at her show in spring: ‘It was a redirection of Stella classics, things I do instinctively and effortlessly, so paying homage to Britain and its classic tailoring and inserting a new femininity, bringing a sensual woman into it all. These are clothes to slot into your wardrobe. When we were making this collection, I just kept thinking I want to wear that.’ (Source: Elle)
The Artists’ Version
Sometimes Instagram filters won’t be enough to “reinterpret” a collection through new filters. SSENSE collaborated with three artists who present their own personal take on the fall collection. The best filter is always an artist’s eye. First of was Catherine Delphia, a professional medical artist Catherine Delphia exploring the crossovers between anatomical illustration and fine art. Her soft pencil sketches display a certified mastery of the human form. Followed by our favourite, John Gordon Gauld, who paints realistic oils in renaissance tradition, but with a pop culture twist. He really catapulted the collection in another time. The third artist was Miky Fábrega, the founder of Panama City’s NEO! Creative Consulting Agency. He presents his expressionist take on Stella’s collection.
A Force of Nature
As a celebration of Stella McCartney’s arrival at renowned online retailer SSENSE, they shot an editorial called “A Force of Nature” to showcase Stella’s Fall/Winter collections. Minimalistic, clean, refined.
