Luxury house STELLA McCARTNEY presented their Pre-Fall 2022 Collection, that reflects designer’s dynamic moods and ageless attitude. The collection, that brings modern take on heritage aesthetics, fuses dualities such as structure and softness, natural eccentricity and glamour, simplicity and complexity. 72% of collection is made from responsible materials, new innovations include Humana post-consumer recycled denim made from clothing waste and pieces crafted with repurposed deadstock fabrics from LVMH’s Nona Source platform. As always, the collection is free from leather, feathers and fur. This season color palette features neutral colors that clash with saturated bursts of color and rich prints. The silhouettes are flattering, they simultaneously envelope the body, and emphasize its most sensual shapes.
“Twisted classicism is felt in disrupted staples, including longer and leaner masculine blazers inspired by John Lennon’s 1970s suiting in traceable and regenerative wool – styled over cropped straight trousers. Delivering novelty are thigh-length traceable wool jackets with oversized fluffy white Fur Free Fur shearling collars and voluminous outerwear highlighting a glitched herringbone, creating an unexpected visual quirk on cocoon coats and belted wool trenches. Cozy knitwear is focal, with soft organic cotton ribbed pieces hugging the form and sweater-dresses with contrasting slashes.
Encrusted jewels and fluid silks signal a conscious return to evening wear, including tuxedo tailoring with pin-striped diamonds, satin dresses featuring a diamanté wave pattern and crystal chokers on silky forest-friendly viscose halter dresses and sleeveless crepe tops. Asymmetric sustainable sablé gowns progress refreshed glamour, featuring diagonal diamond bands, lustrous Grecian one-shoulder silhouettes and the iconic Frayme chain. Newness comes from voluminous lurex knitwear with glittering stripes, spaghetti-strapped dresses contrasting studded coset bodices with looser skirts and sequins dripping off jumpers, cardigans and bodycon dresses.” – from Stella McCartney
