“Women Power Love” is Stella’s new slogan, she designed an exclusive T-shirt.
For spring, Stella developed her signatures with a focus on volume and new takes on Skin-Free-Skin.
After a fabulous outing for fall in which Stella delivered a deliberate message of optimism and women’s empowerment, spring found her in a more subdued state of mind — at least, as telegraphed by her clothes. Here Stella’s seemed content to offer a straightforward series of wardrobe suggestions. “Exploring classic tailoring and signature silhouettes…A joyful exploration of British style,” she wrote in her program notes. This resulted in a lineup of fine clothes.
When Stella translated the unfettered silhouette into evening, it worked beautifully, her one-shouldered, ruffled red sack dress a glam charmer. A shapely “debutante” dress with puffed sleeves and peplum recalled the Eighties with excessive gusto. As for the tailoring, it looked appealing and, as per the show notes, “timeless”.
