Stella McCartney RTW Fall 2015

For fall, Stella McCartney entered the season’s discussion about pragmatic sensuality, especially as it applies to day clothes.

For fall, Stella McCartney entered the season’s discussion about pragmatic sensuality, especially as it applies to day clothes. There was a sense of exhale, of letting go, of examining whether a woman can reveal her sensual side, embracing innate rather than pat ease while still dressing in ways that work.

 

McCartney’s conclusion: a resounding yes. An engaging sophistication permeated the collection in which she both pushed and relaxed her specific parameters of feminine-masculine plays and deftly manipulated classics. Thick-knit sweater dresses worked on a slant and half open at the side over languid underpinnings bared an arm, a shoulder, a glimpse of leg. Bustiers in lightweight wools delivered discreet allure, matching trousers and long-sleeved shirts.

 

McCartney loves her Savile Row references and here delivered them with new femininity. Even at her most streamlined, she incorporated ladylike flourish: charming godets punctuating the hems of cropped pants under a chic belted coat; mannish tweeds turned a shade gentle but unfussy in coats and dresses cut lean through the waist before erupting into a swing of handkerchief points. The graceful ease continued for evening as McCartney made seemingly casual use of lush metallic jacquards and brocades, incorporating swirling insets into ivory dresses for a lovely, quietly sexy effect.

 

Lovelier still: her fab no-fur furs. After much consideration, McCartney introduced the idea for pre-fall and continued it here. The coats looked great and indicated not a shift in her thought process — she remains vehemently antifur — but growth in her problem-solving acumen. Her process is not unlike those faced daily by her constituency of working women, which is why she relates so well to their needs.
