McCartney screened a short film showing model Anouck Lepere diving into a pool in a racer-back swimsuit, cycling in a cap-sleeve, zebra-print top, and pounding the pavement in a shiny petrol blue running jacket.
Spotlighting two new categories for the collection – triathlon and cycling – the film will debut online in January. And while the garments may stand up to the rigors of sport, the collection still bears all of McCartney’s lighthearted, feminine design signatures.
One dusty pink warm-up jacket has delicate puff shoulders, while a pair of leggings has a black-and-white trompe l’oeil acid wash denim print. A shiny, tomato red cycling top was inspired by McCartney’s own experiences of cycling among the dicey London traffic. Bicycle gear has never looked so sexy.
