On the seventh day of PFW Stella McCartney presented her SS14 womenswear collection which introduced a laid-back comfort, sensuality and summery air.
Being true to the sportswear-inspired philosophy of her designs, mixed tailoring, simple-elegant garments and silk pajama outfits took wearability and comfort vibes to another level; baggy culottes and airy skirts topped with baggy-breezy tunics were also on display. Typical for a spring-summer show there were floral designs with Japanese influences highlighted by a black “Geisha” embroidered in print patches jumpsuit. Knitwear stayed also strong in McCartney’s collection while streamlined evening dresses in delicate fabrics, from silk to ruffle details, swept down the catwalk in the Opera Garnier venue. Showcasing denim covered in handmade stitches, metallic details and knotted flat sandals took off the sense of dressy daytime ease. Butter-coulored peekaboos with side cut-outs and cropped trousers added a discreetly erotic overtones.
Effortless utility chic, technical fabrics with slouchy, but also precise cuts, and simmering sensuality expressed through her designs, reasserted that Stella McCartney understands what the contemporary woman desires.
