It’s official. Ms McCartney does the best parties and shows that always manage to gather the right selection of Stella stalwarts including celeb faces, family, actors and friends in an informally formal atmosphere.
Stella chose to show her Spring’13 Resort collection in New York and had guests rolling up to admire the new line including Anne Hathaway, Jim Carrey, Anna Wintour (natch), Emily Mortimer, Lauren Hutton and Solange Knowles.
In a laissez-faire picnic atmosphere with croquet, hammocks and games, models showed that Stella’s got it all going on this coming season and we’ve a whole lot of sashaying fringe, cheetah print, big chintz florals and razor cut bootleg pants to look forward to. This is a very good thing indeed.
Mixing ladylike attire with a gutsy attitude while throwing in a whole heap of slick is what Stella does best and Spring Resort ’13 beams with it. Cute pastel shades paired with big cute & kitsch ’50s florals met bright yellow sashay fringes (a major trend here) while gorgeous see-through lace pants were worn with simple shirts and sharp blazers. Tangerine strapless dresses, check bootleg trouser suits and gauzy pleat skirts added to this strong and directional look.
The collection bridges New York and London lifestyles as well as it caters to the wants of the sophisto-savvy woman about town.
