The off-duty look

Apparently our Stella McCartney fascination will never end and this is more than statement, however what we have witnessed was proper minimalism in terms of her latest collection. Whether it is genius or just simply not appealing to you, decide it on your own, but let’s line up some of our pros. To go against purity, the richly detailed Opera Garnier venue provided the perfect backdrop for the smart-chic collection, that was much about ease and carefreeness. Modern elegance could best describe the nature of the collection, that included laced dresses, tops with alligator skin reassembling prints, rounded sunnies and large volumed shoulders on shirts. Putting an emphasis on understatement, Stella’s Spring will bring us laid-black glam that has both feminine, sporty and lingerie-like elements. But whether light-as-air and fluid-as-a-story-to-tell, this neutral coloured game with transparency versus opacity, only made it straight into our hearts and top of our wish-lists. Are you guys with us?

Offensichtlich wird unsere Faszination für Stella McCartney niemals enden und das ist nicht nur so daher gesagt. Was wir jedoch bezeugen durften, war purer Minimalismus, was ihre neuste Kollektion betrifft. (more…)

Yet again a much awaited collaboration is on its way thank to our beloved creative duo, designer Stella McCartney and actress slash bestselling cookbook author slash curator Gwyneth Paltrow, who have teamed up to create a capsule collection for Paltrow’s lifestyle website, Goop. Featuring investment pieces designed by McCartney and curated by herself – as we just got to know it thank to Vogue – the collection will definitely be rejoiced by both the press and customers. There are rumours about the selection, which will feature ‘classic McCartney pieces including a black blazer, black jeans and black wool trousers, as well as several exclusive handbags – and will sit on the Goop Collection part of the company’s website, which offers products exclusive to Goop readers.’ If we follow Goop’s image, the collection must be just as practical as feminine by incorporating the knowledge of expert contributors and tastemakers and delivering an uncompromising style, and let’s be honest the latter will undoubtedly happen thank to the one and only Stella McCartney.

Es ist mal wieder eine lang erwartete Kollaboration auf dem Weg, dank unseres geliebten Duos, der Designerin Stella McCartney und Schauspielerin Schrägstrich Bestseller-Kochbuch-Autorin Schrägstrich Kuratorin Gwyneth Paltrow, die sich nun zusammen getan haben, um eine Capsule Collection für Paltrows Lifestyle Website, Goop, zu kreieren.

As much we don’t like predictability that much we crave some sort of consistency that among others, Stella McCartney masters. She knows exactly what works best for the women who fall for her designs that are merging the attributes of simple, clean, feminine-sporty and vegan. The pieces she creates season after season are so called creative layers, embracing her signature style of sharp tailoring, and adding a natural confidence and sporty femininity to the wearer. Her Spring/Summer 2013 accessories are designs that no one can say no to; it brings optimism, colour, youth and life into our wardrobes. The luxe appeal range includes chain-trimmed falabella bags in the shades of metallics made out of faux leather and half-wedges with tropical prints and transparent twist. Mixing masculine and feminine references has always been a speciality of hers, aiming the Stella woman who is naturally sexy, naturally confident and modern in mind with a crave for a constant effortless flair.

So sehr wir Vorhersehbarkeit nicht mögen, so sehr lieben wir ein wenig Beständigkeit, die unter anderem von Stella McCartney gemeistert wird. Sie weiß genau, was am besten zu den Frauen passt, die sich in ihre Designs verlieben, welche die Attribute einfach, gradlinig, feminin sportlich und vegan verschmelzen lassen. (more…)

Being obsessed with the Japanese beauty –  who’s also the current face of Stella McCartney’s fall campaign – Chiharu Okunugi, graces the pages of Vogue China’s August issue for a beauty feature. Besides the beauty editorial, a short film titled ‘Homage’ was made in which Okunugi plays the massive fitness lady role as doing sweaty training for an upcoming match, juxtaposed with rather classical musical selection. In another scene, Okunugi lies seductively on the bed, wearing a creamy silk nightgown, with a fan blowing her hair and ice cooling down her skin. In the photo shoot the model sparkled in elegant looks ranging from sporty to ultra-feminine styles while personifying the idea of true beauty.

Wir sind verrückt nach der japanischen Schönheit Chiharu Okunugi – auch das aktuelle Gesicht von Stella McCartneys Herbst Kampagne – die die Seiten der Augustausgabe der chinesischen Vogue für ein Beauty Feature ziert. (more…)

“It’s workout wear with attitude, to make you feel stylish while you exercise, creating standout pieces that you can make your own”- explains Stella McCartney the spirit of her collaboration with Adidas that is focusing on both aesthetics and performance. The continuing partnership between Stella McCartney and Adidas made a new season debut that merges functionality with the new fashion wave perfectly. In their latest Autumn/Winter 2013 campaign the technical issues become new fashion opportunities to reinterpret for example parkas and winter outfits. The collection is offering sportswear in a spectrum of vivid colours, high-tech fabrics and graphic prints that we got used to from Stella. By adding a twist to any workout, the range of sportswear is including winter leggings, lightweight jackets, sport bags that broke the standard sportswear feel and has rather been added  a street-style touch. In the mood for sports yet?

“Es ist Workout Kleidung mit Attitüde, damit man sich stilvoll fühlt, während man trainiert, wir kreieren hervorstechende Stücke, die ihr euer Eigen nennen könntet” – erklärt Stella McCartney den Geist ihrer Zusammenarbeit mit Adidas, die den Fokus sowohl auf Ästhetik als auch Leistung setzt.
