Stella McCartney has always been a jeans girl, often wearing denim for personal appearances and regularly featuring it in her runway collections. Now the designer is hoping to make a bigger business out of jeans with the expansion of her denim range to 10 styles available in 20 washes for spring 2014.
“I believe it’s an everyday part of everybody’s life,” said McCartney. “Jeans are a timeless classic with a million opportunities to inject freshness and attitude. There are a lot of eco possibilities as well with denim, which I find exciting.”
The collection will include shorts and jeans in skinny, wide-leg and boyfriend styles as well as low-, mid- and high-rise fits. Classic indigo washes will come in overdyed, faded and dégradé, and there will be a significant novelty component, including a range of pink washes and heart and leopard prints. The 100 percent Italian-made collection will ship in November and retail from $350 to $595.
"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @victoriastevens; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
