“I’ve got one-and-half hours until I have to get my breasts out again,” said Stella McCartney last week during the launch of her T-shirt collaboration with cult American cartoonist Robert Crumb at her Bruton Street store. It was the designer’s first public appearance since the birth of her son, Miller, last month. “You should have seen me before I came out, wearing fishnet stockings and feeding the baby. It was such a Helmut Newton moment.”

Three hundred guests, including McCartney’s husband, Alasdhair Willis; her sister, Mary Donald; Jeremy Scott; Lynn and Evelyn de Rothschild; Chrissie Hynde; Jake and Dinos Chapman; Zadie Smith; Stephen Jones; Allegra Hicks; Twiggy; Mike Leigh, and Jade Parfitt, took a gander at the limited-edition T-shirt that features a comic strip design by Crumb. “Robert hates fashion and he hates skinny women,” said Aline Crumb, dressed head-to-toe in Stella McCartney, of her husband. “But when Stella approached him about the project, he warmed to her.”
