We're back to dressing up and heading out for Stella McCartney FW 21. A fashion house that never seems to disappoint, with stellar casting, its conscious mission and always delivering the best, Stella McCartney seized the Tate Modern for its highly-anticipated FW 21 show.
The show opens with "Everything U Need" by Overmono, slowly transitioning into nightclub lighting; reminiscent of the nights that once were. Models march out one by one in perfect timing, dressed to the nines in youthful but also an eccentric play in power dressing. From London clubs to British heritage, Stella McCartney was nothing shy of being bold. Broad shouldered houndstooth coats, sporty bomber jackets and exuberant kick flares - the vegan and cruelty free FW 21 collection was set out to explore the perfect trifecta in volume, texture and clashing prints.
Inspired by D is for Desire from the brands A to Z Manifesto, the collection reflects the yearning for freedom through frivolity, escapism, celebration and opulence. Statement party wear such as ruched body con dresses, sequinned bodysuits, peplum skirts and glimmering thigh high boots; the collection was humble but bright, married with a sporty edge.
As we have come to know with Stella McCartney, there is always more that meets the eye. Stella McCartney's consciousness paves its way forward once again with an impressive 77% of the collection being constructed from sustainable sources and materials. Coats and tailoring pieces encompass wool sourced from farms with high welfare standards and regenerative farming practices, as well as PVC free sequins, forest friendly viscose stretch satin and ECONYL – a regenerated nylon made entirely from ocean and landfill waste.
This consideration was extended to accessories and footwear; boasting vegan and cruelty free shoes, bags and eyewear including the Maxi Falabella bag decorated in recyclable aluminium chains and footwear crafted from solvent-free biodegradable soles with ECONYL lining. Paving the way for a more thoughtful, considered and sustainable future; D was certainly for Desire at Stella McCartney FW 21.
