FUN + WHIMSY
Paris: “Fashion should be fun,” and with that being said, Stella McCartney’s Fall presentation was a lively affair. From sguiggly lines in delicate gold embroidery to 3-D cording on an oversized coat, black double-breasted jackets, quilted coats and shirt dresses – all bore some whimsical motif. The daywear had a sporty, relaxed, ’90s feel, with tied sleeves around waists and shoulders and on chunky knit dresses. – Lizzy Bowring
