2013 Autumn Winter Paris Fashion Week: Stella McCartney
For A/W 2013, Stella McCartney showed off her signature sporty-cool aesthetic to an A-list group that included Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie, Natalia Vodianova, Bono, and, of course, her father, Paul McCartney. A star-studded crowd indeed, but once the lights went down, all eyes were focused on McCartney's refreshing array of boxy pinstriped coats, flip skirts, cropped plaid jackets, and chunky-soled loafer shoes. "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," said McCartney. The designer continued her story with an interesting array of knit dresses featuring intricate semi-sheer lace detailing, portraying a simultaneously tomboy yet luxe feel. Eveningwear showcased a lineup of effortlessly elegant strapless silk dresses with bold elastic banding, while others featured a kitschy "skate" print. There was also a covetable array of metallic, holographic bags that will surely make their way onto every fashion darling's must haves list.
