STELLA MCCARTNEY RELEASES BEATLES-INSPIRED COLLECTION

By Posted on 0 3

Stella McCartney takes on uniting people through music, color, and fashion with the new All Together Now collection. Inspired by The Beatles’ 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine, the English designer has created a Fall/Winter 2019 capsule of womenswear, menswear, and kids-wear that features whimsical graphics from the movie and classic iconography of the British band. For the campaign, McCartney stayed true to the melodic spirit of the collection by collaborating with musical artists Joy Crookes, Oscar Jerome, Keyah/Blu, and Femi Koleoso of Ezra Collective.

Moved when watching the 50th anniversary digital relaunch of Yellow Submarine, McCartney shares in the press release, “It affected me in a way I just wasn’t expecting. Especially this idea of connecting people and bringing people together–politically this message has never been more relevant.” With the collection and its campaign, the designer seeks to express the same values of togetherness and tolerance that the film highlighted, presented in fresh, bold ways for the modern audience.

 

These themes are made explicit through pieces emblazoned with “All Together Now” in multiple languages, in addition to the slogans “all you need is love” and “love, love, love.” Other motifs are applied to the collection as artistic renditions of scenes from the film. The “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” scene transforms into a colorful jacquard print on feminine, flowing dresses. For men, psychedelic pop-art portraits of The Beatles appear on sweaters and t-shirts. Kids-wear also features iconic motifs, such as the yellow submarine. Familiar accessories like the Eclypse sneaker and Falabella tote are re-introduced with a limited-edition monogram, punctuated by mini yellow submarines.

Consistent with McCartney’s commitment to sustainability, the All Together Now collection is fur and leather-free and utilizes eco-friendly materials such as organic denim, regenerated cashmere, and a new 100% recycled cotton Breton.

STELLA MCCARTNEY’s NEW MEN’s RANGE INSPIRED BY BEATLES FILM YELLOW SUBMARINE

By Posted on 0 , 9

Stella McCartney’s new men’s range inspired by Beatles film Yellow Submarine

The shirt’s print also depicts band members Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison in a surreal landscape with film creature Jeremy Hillary Boob

The trendy piece is part of the 47-year-old Stella’s new men’s collection.
The outfit, which isn’t for sale yet, is completed by a long-sleeved cream turtleneck, smart black trousers and motorcycle boots.
It is one of 34 released and takes inspiration from dad Paul’s Yellow Submarine animated film, which was revived for its 50th anniversary last summer.
On the bottom of the shirt Paul, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison are depicted parading through a surreal landscape with bizarre rabbit-like creature Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD, in tow.
The strange images surrounding the band also featured in the film, which was later made into an album and is illustrated by German artist Heinz Endelmann.
The range, which is also apparently influenced by Savile Row tailors’ handiwork, also features a brown tracksuit with John Lennon’s face on the front, a bright yellow over coat and a large, grey hooded poncho.
Stella launched her label in 2001 and now runs 17 stores internationally.

 

 

 

 

 

 

STELLA MCCARTNEY : FASHION TECH / Jan/Feb 2019 WIRED MAGAZINE ISSUE

By Posted on 0 11

Stella McCartney said in a cover interview with Wired magazine that she was ‘proud’ of her collaboration with Adidas on its iconic shoe – which are typically made using leather.

‘We pushed to get it vegan and they let me. And we did it. I’m so proud. That is the future,’ she told the magazine.

Stella appears on the cover of the latest issue of Wired, shot by Erik Madigan Heck, dressed in dressed in a geometric colour-block jacket.

Her latest design is a collaboration with Adidas on the Stan Smith trainer, modelled on the shoes the iconic tennis player wore on the court.

Speaking about the shoe, Stella said: ‘I relish the thought that 99 per cent of our customers see the Stan Smith and haven’t got a clue it’s a vegetarian shoe.’We pushed to get it vegan and they let me. And we did it. I’m so proud. That is the future.’  And arguing that she most environmental issues which are mentioned in the fashion industry are not ‘genuine or heartfelt, she added of her designs: ‘If I don’t design things that are desirable and sexy, and a must-have for people, then it just ends up in landfill anyway.’

STELLA MCCARTNEY LAUNCHES HER FIRST EVER BRIDAL COLLECTION

By Posted on 0 16

Leading up to Meghan Markle’s wedding day to Prince Harry, it was widely believed that the former Suits actress would pay her respects to the royal family by choosing a British designer to craft her dress. Brands like Temperley and Ralph & Russo were part of the early conversation, as was another famed British designer: Stella McCartney, the cool and sophisticated label spearheaded by the fashion-forward
Stella was Markle’s choice for the evening reception portion of her wedding, while the look itself—a custom sleek, halter neck crepe gown—generated such massive amounts of attention that the label responded a month later with an exclusive opportunity for interested brides.
In June, Stella released an exclusive, limited-edition piece resembling Markle’s evening gown called “Made With Love.” The dress debuted in time for the opening of McCartney’s London store on Old Bond Street in two colors: lily white and onyx black. In the following months, other bridal designers released designs remarkably similar to McCartney’s original design, while mass retailers like Instagram-driven platform Fashion Nova also sought to capitalize on the royal wedding craze.

Now, McCartney is ready for the biggest news yet. With 2018 nearly over, she’s launching her first-ever bridal collection, a 17-piece line entitled “Made with Love.” The designs include her now-iconic Frogmore House reception design, along with a beautiful, lace-embroidered jumpsuit. There’s even a sleek, ivory-colored tuxedo option for those who want something beyond the traditional dress. “Having been a bride myself and being honored to have been asked many times to do wedding gowns for some of my dear, close friends; it’s something that I feel very passionately about and is very close to my heart,” Stella tells, “I really do see it as one of the biggest privileges as a female designer—to know that women come into our stores and they even take existing pieces and buy them in white and wear them for the most important day of their lives.”

Her 17-piece bridal collection will be available in Stella McCartney stores around the world, as well as other retailers like Nordstrom, Net-a-Porter and Saks Fifth Avenue. “I think in this day-and-age, the wedding day is something very different to how it’s traditionally perceived,” she concludes to The Knot. “And I think that the house of Stella McCartney really represents something a little more effortless. That’s incredibly reflective of the bride and her personality—and what she wants to wear even outside of that important day.” For those who want the full in-store experience, the perks will even include your future “Something Blue.” McCartney’s team across her nine U.S. locations will even personalize the wedding dress with a special touch: a blue tag sewn into the fabric which has a personal message from Stella McCartney herself.

Not to forget, Markle also stitched a rather sentimental “Something Blue” into the wedding dress. “It’s fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date,” she told.

STELLA MCCARTNEY LAUNCHES BREAST CANCER CHARITY

By Posted on 0 15

Stella has created the organisation to work towards the “prevention, early detection and treatment of breast cancer” and she has enlisted the services of Idris Elba for a short awareness video entitled ‘All Is Love’.

With front fastening and soft internal pockets for use with prosthesis, the design aims to help minimise discomfort for thousands of women. As part of the launch of the new campaign, Stella has announced that 1,000 of these special bras will be given out to women with cancer – for free.

She said: “I am so proud and excited to say that I am launching the Stella McCartney Cares Foundation. In so many cultures, there’s so much stigma attached to breast cancer and I think through this campaign that I’ve really found out that the community is so critical and it’s so important.”

The clothing creative has been personally touched by the illness as her mother Linda McCartney was 56 when she tragically died from breast cancer, and that loss is the reason Stella is so determined to help cancer sufferers and the motivation behind starting her own charity.

Stella said: “It’s a cause so close to my heart and the reason I designed the Louise Listening bra is my experience of seeing someone that I loved go through such a traumatizing operation, a mastectomy. I found that the mastectomy bras available at the time were just another moment where [breast cancer patients] lost their femininity and they lost a sense of who they were as a woman. I wanted to create a product that really is still beautiful and still feminine and still celebrates the power of being a woman.”

Stella – who designed Meghan Markle’s second wedding dress in May – introduced the Louise Listening bra in 2015 which is a post-operative mastectomy compression bra exclusive to women undergoing breast cancer treatment, and to celebrate the launch of her charity, Stella will donate 1,000 free of charge to breast cancer sufferers.

Previously speaking, Stella said: “We wanted to bring something feminine and beautiful into a bra that is taboo. There are so many different emotions attached to the tragic realities of having had a double mastectomy, many cultures are not accepting and terrible things happen to women both physically and emotionally.We just wanted to make something that allows women undergoing this to have something to be proud of, something with no shame attached. We wanted women to know that you can still be feminine, have your sensuality, have all of the things that are attached to being a woman and that part of your body can still feel beautiful on the outside, as well as the inside.”
