• Stella McCartney Autumn 2020 Women’s Ready-To-Wear

    An eclectic collection of contrasts and contradictions; glamour in day, effortlessness in evening. The Stella McCartney woman this season is unapologetic, unpredictable and unafraid to be herself. A magnetic woman of the world who does everything with heart.

    The palette is a foundation of classic neutrals; blues, camels, greys, blacks and whites are punctuated with rich tones of red gala and garnet, sherbet yellows and vibrant shades of bright orange, cerise and fuchsia pop.

    ‘Sculptural Classicism’ captures the timeless and traditional Stella wardrobe through an artistic lens. Distinctive sculptural coats with curved lines are closed with statement buttons, while dramatic fringing enhances the signature camel coat. Pinstripe tailoring has a utility look softened by an elevated shoulder roll. A khaki two-piece, inspired by a tailored military uniform, with an exaggerated wide leg culotte is introduced in a recycled Japanese polyester twill.

    Modern graphics are introduced in high-contrast monochrome. A hand-painted wave print, in lightweight chiffon and crepe de chine dresses, is finished with an embroidered trim adding movement to tiered silhouettes. Body conscious gathering is highlighted with keyholes, outlined with snaking colour blocked glass beads and diamante crystals. High-contrast colours and abstract lines are defined on sunray pleats of alter-nappa and recycled nylon. A new recycled polyester lame is introduced across contemporary pleated eveningwear pieces. 

    Inspired by playful archival pieces inherited from Stella’s mother, Linda, a tongue in cheek take on polka-dot; a graphic satsuma print decorates flowing crepe de chine layered separates. Styles are feminine and light, interrupted with slices of block colour and beaded fringe. A rich three-dimensional heart cloque in vibrant turquoise and crisp white layers of gathers create an effortless party dress vibe. 

    The new ‘S’ logo jacquard is interpreted in bitter brown and oat for coating and apricot and camel for tailoring. Herringbone patterns are blown up on needle punched felt coats, decorated with an eclectic mix of buttons. The herringbone theme continues scribbled across KOBA®. KOBA® debuted during Spring/Summer 20 Paris Fashion Week. KOBA® is recycled, recyclable and made with plant-based fibers making it the most sustainable animal-free fur ever made.

    Continuing the brands commitment to eco-conscious fashion and a circular future, sustainable materials are used throughout the collection. Organic cotton, sustainable viscose, ZQ sustainable wool, recycled polyester, recycled nylon, regenerated cashmere and vegetarian leather continue to be widely used and for the first time COREVA® denim is introduced, the first biodegradable stretch denim created using plant-based yarns free from plastics and micro-plastics.
