A hint of lace exposed under a blazer, the confidence of underwear as outerwear; our Autumn Winter 2020 lingerie supports a powerful femininity. Designed for women, by women, flattering pieces tease our signature dichotomy of strength and softness. Blending sensuality and sustainability, we introduce a lace made from 90% recycled materials alongside organic cotton and jersey – making this our most eco-friendly lingerie collection to date.
Captured by photographer and filmmaker Alexandra Leese, a burst of energy and youthfulness is felt throughout AW20 – across higher legs, bralettes and crop top silhouettes. There is more softness and less structure, with an added emphasis on comfort, modernity and simplicity.
Pops of bright colour are offset with classic nude, winter white, oyster and black. Three ready-to-wear patterns join the collection: the iconic horse jacquard, the Stella heartbeat print and the animal heart print.
Key moments include logo-trimmed bra and brief sets in Ivy Chatting, vintage-inspired floral lace bodysuits in Anna Blooming and silken monochromatic pyjama moments in Gloria Sprinting and Violet Hopping, equally desirable as ready to wear.
Stella icons include a leopard-print bodysuit in Arizona Lushing as well as the juxtaposition between sporty logos and sensual lace in Whitney Popping – this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month style, with proceeds going towards our Stella McCartney Cares Foundation in support of breast cancer charities.
