Stella McCartney described her spring-summer collection at Paris Fashion Week yesterday as “palpable and everyday”.
In the gilded foyer of the Paris Opera Garnier, amid ornate, swinging double chandeliers in gold, the daughter of former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney showed off outfits featuring elliptical curves in vibrant saffron yellow and forest green.
With delicate dense knife pleats these ellipses visually sculpted a feminine shape that was highly flattering to busts and waists, like a geometric hourglass.
Some of the broderie anglaise looks added a play on transparency, but the best of the show came with an on-trend safari theme.
Black and white camouflage print looked fantastic on a silky jumpsuit, worn by sassy model of the moment Karli Kloss.
The look was not exactly everyday, but is likely to sell well.
Among the famous faces at yesterday’s show were model Kate Moss, musician M.I.A, and Sir Paul.
