MEGHAN MARKLE WEARS STELLA MCCARTNEY; DESIGNER WILLING TO CREATE WEDDING DRESS

By Posted on 0 1

Dave Grohl and Stella, 16 Jan, 2018

Meghan Markle is a fan of Stella. Prince Harry’s fiancée wore a black coat by the designer to an official engagement in Cardiff, Wales on Thursday, just two days after Stella revealed that she would be delighted to make a wedding dress for the former actress.

Prince Harry and his fiancée are in Wales to showcase the country’s culture and heritage, according to Kensington Palace. Fans gathered outside Cardiff Castle, the couple’s first stop on their tour. Meghan Markle greeted the well-wishers while wearing Stella’s fashionable tie detail coat.
The black jacket has peak lapels and an oversized tie at the waist, and it retails for $1,939.73. This isn’t the first time Meghan has worn Stella McCartney. Meghan was spotted in a velvet dress by the designer in 2011, according to Meghan’s Mirror, which logs Meghan’s clothing choices. She also wore sneakers that McCartney designed for Adidas last spring.

When asked by E! News on Tuesday night if she would be open to designing the wedding dress, McCartney said she’d “definitely think about it,” but with a little prodding, she revealed that she would “be honored.”
“I’ve done a few wedding dresses for very close friends, and it’s an incredible honor,” she explained. “So of course, you know, I think it’s one of the most special days in anyone’s life. And it’s such a personal affair, so I’m a big fan of doing wedding dresses in general.”
McCartney wouldn’t be allowed to talk about designing a gown for the royal family if she was hired. When Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2012, Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton wasn’t allowed to speak about nabbing the career-changing gig. No one knew she was designing Kate’s wedding dress until she was spotted sneaking into Kate’s hotel the night before the big day. Meghan Markle’s wedding dress designer will likely be subjected to the same amount of secrecy. Fans will have to wait until May 18 to find out who is designing Meghan Markle’s wedding dress.

STELLA MCCARTNEY HELD A FEST TUESDAY NIGHT IN L.A WITH PAUL AND RINGO

By Posted on 0 , 5

Stella McCartney held an epic, music-filled fun fest Tuesday night in Hollywood with a performance by none other than dad Paul (who joined Dr. Pepper’s Jaded Hearts Club Band onstage for a banging rendition of “Helter Skelter”).

Held at the iconic SIR (Studio Instrument Rentals) Studios in Hollywood, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the event was a celebration of the fashion designer’s men’s and women’s autumn/winter 2018 collections, that had models dancing onstage and rocking out to performers Leon Bridges, St. Vincent, Beck, Grimes and more.

The crowd was art, fashion, Hollywood and music world heavy. Paul greeted Ringo with a hearty hug. Kiernan Shipka and Selma Blair, twinning in African print dresses and platform brogues from the designer’s spring collection, were all smiles near the neon “Stella” letters that greeted guests at the entrance, while stylist Karla Welch took in the timely Time’s Up neon sign with Amy Poehler down the hall.

David Hockney was roaming the neon-filled rooms with stylist George Blodwell (the stripe-loving Brit-Cal artist whose blockbuster retrospective is coming to L.A. next year has known Stella since she was a girl, he said), and TV writer Maria Bell was decked out in Stella’s latest collection pieces designed in collaboration with one of her favorite artists, Urs Fischer.

At the power table to the left of the stage, Stella held court with her dad, Ringo, David Lynch, Hockney and more,she was as excited as anyone else to see the rock n’ roll legends in the room, darting away to say hello to one of her faves. “The thing is, I’m so comfortable in a rock n’ roll environment, possibly more comfortable than in a fashion environment, that when I see the guitarist for the Foo Fighters I’m like, ah!,” she said. “I love his name is Pat Smear. I’m like, I get it! I know what you’re doing.”“For us, any historical music location in L.A. is somewhere we feel very at home,” she said, adding, “And all my friends seem to have moved here.” (Two years ago, the designer hosted a collection preview and party at Amoeba Records in Hollywood.)

On the Time’s Up initiative, the famously animal rights and sustainability-minded designer said, “Equality is such a big thing for me, and finding courage for men and women to be equal. Next is the fashion industry, we are all in this together.”
In the back room lined with glass cases full of hot guitars and horns, Stella showed her men’s and women’s collections on groups of models, while stars sipped “Paul McCartney’s favorite margaritas” (made with Casa Dragones tequila). Katy Perry posed with silver-haired model (and mother of Elon) Maye Musk, while stylist Jeanne Yang admired the white Stella leisure suit worn by BORNS. “He’s like the next David Bowie,” she said of the 26-year-old pop singer’s style.

Among the collection’s ath-boudoir fashion hits were Adidas Originals sports jerseys rendered in black lace, lacy slip dresses and party-ready jumpsuits, fugly Dad sneakers (they are all the rage) and a clutch with the cheeky slogan, “No Smile, No Service.” The women’s collection will be in stores in May, with the men’s following in June. Beck took the stage a little after 11 p.m. with the Compton Kidz Club choir, leading them in a rendition of “Like A Ship Without A Sail,” before moving into a song for Stella. “Let’s pretend it’s her prom,” he joked, crooning, “I Only Have Eyes For You.” Indeed.

 


STELLA MCCARTNEY RTW SPRING 2018

By Posted on 0 14

“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”.

STELLA HAS SECURED A LICENSE WITH ISA SPA

By Posted on 0 5

Stella has secured a license with ISA Spa, which will see the firm create, produce and distribute underwear and swimwear collections in keeping with Stella’s eponymous brand’s ethics.

And the creative mastermind is excited by the partnership because she has always loved the products, and she hopes her customers will also enjoy wearing her garments, which will leave them feeling “confident and comfortable”.

Speaking about her partnership and the upcoming capsules, the mogul said: “Lingerie has been a personal obsession of mine for a long time and I have always been inspired by it. While for swimwear I want to encourage women to feel confident and comfortable about themselves and in what they are wearing.” And Stella believes the additional products that her eponymous brand will be launching next year marks an “important new chapter” for her fashion house. She continued: “This is an important new chapter for us at Stella McCartney and I feel that we have found the perfect partner for us, who really understands our brand and will bring together quality, ability and a high level of commitment to take us to this next chapter.”
Speaking about the joint venture, the chief executive office of ISA Spa, Mila Zegna, said: “Our mission is to support the brand DNA, core values and social responsibility beliefs thanks to a team that leverages our product know-how, luxury market knowledge and a dedicated sales strategy.”

However, this is not the first time Stella has released a lingerie line as in 2008 she launched a range of undergarments, which developed into a sleepwear range, and included a double mastectomy post-operative bra, as well as a limited edition set to raise awareness for Breast Cancer, which was followed by a beachwear range eight years later.
