Stella McCartney showcased what she is best at, i.e. everyday wear ranging from menswear tailoring, reworked in oversize volumes, to basic XL vests and T-shirts paired with sleek dresses, skirts and loose trousers. The simplicity of the clothes was offset by cuts and deconstructions such as asymmetry and cut-outs, while bold African prints decorated loose dresses, only one of which had a belted waist. The washed denim pieces were very ’90s, the puff sleeves on the blouses and some of the dresses had an Eighties influence, which continues to dominate many runways. But it is probably the fabrics that were McCartney’s focus, given that these were sustainable, organic and non-animal materials, such as a faux leather used for the first time not only for accessories but also for clothes.
