Stella McCartney’s wearable collection for spring brought together suiting separates, safari influences and giddy girlishness. Starting off with smart jackets over easy wrapped-waist trousers, McCartney showed her business side, but avoided getting too serious by femme-ing up jackets with lustrous silk shantung, and adding a flounce or a cheerful peplum. In step with this season’s safari trend, she used sporty olive drab for gauchos with oversized side pockets, worn with a one-shouldered knit top in the same color family. The perfect camel tone made an appearance as a boyfriend blazer over pale butter-colored short-shorts and a pinky-nude lace top. Yves Klein Blue popped up here and there, in separates and a pantsuit, looking electric against all the neutrals, and the show ended with a round of floral-printed accordion-pleated dresses with ebullient ruffles sprouting at the neckline or hem. McCartney’s eclectic mix offered something for every moment of her customers’ life, from early morning board meetings to beachy weekends to sophisticated cocktails, and beyond.
