Discover STELLA MCCARTNEY Fall Winter 2022.23 Collection, that pays tribute to painter, sculptor and printmaker Frank Stella, presented on March 7th, as part of the recently finished Paris Fashion Week. Stella by Stella collection was inspired by the work of American artist Frank Stella, as well as by his presence on the New York art scene. It references Stella’s pieces including Swan Engraving III, (1982), Ahab (1988), Spectralia (1994) and his V Series. The natural palette that pairs masculine earthiness with feminine makeup tones, is energized by unexpected bursts of colour and print. The collection also highlights human body’s sculptural shapes with lingerie and exposed skin. 67% of the ready-to-wear collection was made from conscious materials.

FALL WINTER 2022.23 COLLECTIONS

Frank Stella’s art could be seen both overtly and subtly, with signature Savile Row tailoring featuring graphic prints inspired by his Spectralia – continuing in monochromatic shades on glossy lurex evening dresses. Slim flannel suits were decorated with fine stripes in muted chalk, styled over u-shaped and triangle bras. Linear structures from Frank Stella’s V Series were featured as colour-blocked traceable knitwear twin sets and menswear-inspired jacquard wool coats. Strong shoulders were a key silhouette on striped Fur Free Fur coats, oversized tuxedo tailoring and boxy overcoats. This masculine energy was contrasted with feminine fluid stretch viscose dresses drawing from Frank Stella’s Ahab print. Cerulean high-necked fluid silk viscose jersey dresses were form-fitted around the midriff before bursting from architected vee shapes into ruching, while sculptural balloon skirts were suspended from underwire bras, Embroidered gunmetal chain fringe referenced Frank Stella’s metallic sculptures on silk dresses.

Sexy was brought back through encrusted lace on bias silk slips, form-fitting forest-friendly viscose lilac ribbed all-in-ones and ruching and twisting on soft pink velvet tops and dresses. Sensuality continued on fluid chintz dresses with ruched sleeve details, red double satin dresses with asymmetric bust lines and long skirts revealing the knee with each step, while romanticism came from exaggerated sweetheart necklines An artist’s workwear uniform was elevated with functional details and rich fabrics – including jackets and cargo trousers in velvety soft flocked denim, alongside skirts and polished cotton utilitarian pants with contrast stitching and recycled polyesterclip belts. Industrial shirts with oversized lapels and exaggerated breast pockets also delivered a refined pragmatism. Outerwear highlights included fluffy wool Fur Free Fur on shearling coats, long peacoats and shrunken men’s jackets.” – from Stella McCartney
