Inspired by her 7th studio album, Lover, Stella McCartney has collaborated with friend and fellow animal-lover Taylor Swift on an exclusive capsule collection. Comprising two limited edition Stella McCartney pieces, along with a selection of official Stella x Taylor Swift album merchandise, the collaboration marks a celebration of friendship – the two are longtime fans of one another’s work – and an array of shared favourite things.
Looking to vintage graffiti, band tees, nostalgic memorabilia and song lyrics from Taylor’s latest album, the singer’s Insta- famous cat, Benjamin Button, also makes an appearance on the exclusive range.
In keeping with Stella’s environmentally friendly ethos, and maintaining her role as a leader in fashion sustainability, the limited-edition Stella McCartney bomber jacket is made of sustainable viscose with an airbrushed heart and glass rhinestone detailing, while the handbag has been crafted from from oyster-hued Eco Alter- Nappa leather, which contains recycled polyester and oils from vegetables, and is solvent-free.
Meanwhile, the album merchandise features limited-edition t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets and bags, with all jersey in the collection made from sustainable organic cotton and, true to Stella’s spirit, a reusable water bottle made of recycled plastics.
A huge supporter of Stella’s pioneering work in the field of sustainability, multi-award-winning artist Taylor worked hard with Stella and her design team to ensure all pieces were created not only with an environmentally- friendly focus, but also with an affordable price tag, making it as accessible as possible to her legion of dedicated young fans.
With more collaborations between the sustainable fashion-focused pair already rumoured, expect to see more from Taylor and Stella in the months to come. Stellamccartney.com
