Stella McCartney celebrated her latest collection with cocktails in a historic mansion on the Upper East Side. Models played on giant toy cars and danced to the band in the ballroom and the library. There was also an exclusive preview of the collection at an event in London.
The Autumn 2014 collection includes standout blanket coats: sumptuous, enveloping and comforting. Deconstructed dot and houndstooth patterns, as well as screen-printed London landscapes were the key prints of the season. Detailing expressed a punk individuality, breaking away from the establishment: metal signet buttons and zips with chains – hard-edged but softly placed in delicate, brushed fabrics.
