Stella McCartney Catwalk Fashion Show Paris SS2011
The Stella McCartney show, held in the beautiful Opéra Garnier, didn’t pass unnoticed. With her father Paul McCartney turning up, as well as actrice Salma Hayek, Liv Tyler and singer Beth Ditto it caused quite a stir. Paparazzi and street photogs were fighting for the best shot in front of the theater and inside all camera’s were pointed at them.
Yet celebs maybe assure being mentioned in the press, the clothes of course have to tell the right story. And today they did. Stella, who dedicated the show to her family, friends and fantastic team, first sent out several fresh pastel looks. The silhouettes were masculine, yet the colors (rose pistachio, fresh bergamot, lavender, wilde blue and yellow sorbet) made it soft again.
Stella’s trousers were highwaisted and cropped, her jackets were straight cut and had cigarette sleeves. They were paired with buttoned up polos.
Halfway the collection Stella showed some oversized denim outfits with a clean cut. Right after that long silk gowns with very high slits followed each other. Though they were pretty revealing they stayed elegant.
The show ended with a splash of citrus. Gorgeous colored citrus fruit prints covered dresses, skirts, collars and jackets. They looked like the perfect alternative for the often used floral print. Plus fruit prints might become a hit next summer. Prada and Moschino cheap and chic both already showed fruit prints (bananas and lemons, respectively) in their collection.
