PFW: The Stella McCartney Woman Wears the Trousers

2 min read

Reminding us of a brisk fall breeze, the calm and relaxed autumn/winter collection from Stella McCartney effortlessly drifts along the runway leaving us with chills for all the right reasons.

Using a palette of soft ivory, grey, olive-green and navy, McCartney recreates a perfect wintery picture framed in pearls and we certainly want it hanging on our wall. For SS15 loose, comfortable trousers were the summer-time favourite and this morning they’re back with a wintery revamp. The roomy wide-legged trousers teamed with matching plunge jackets confirm the fashion house’s motto: sex appeal doesn’t have to be hard work.

This season the Stella McCartney woman wears the trousers and whether they’re high-waisted teamed with a waist-defining belt or printed peg trousers, they’re subtly sultry. Fusing unlikely pieces together for a functional-yet-unforgettable outcome is after all what Stella McCartney does best and we weren’t disappointed with a bold blue-green combination that challenged the notion: ‘blue and green should never be seen’. Not alone in the tantalising tailoring, strapless tailored jackets layered over semi-sheer blouses create a womanly figure that encourages femininity with the strength of masculine androgyny dominating the Paris runways for autumn/winter.

This dreamy collection leads us into a winter wonderland full of warmth and practicability, not many designers can do stylish functionality but Stella makes it looks easy.
