I gave up pork at age 6 because my favorite book was Charlotte's Web. I was so moved that even now, at 23, I still will not go near it. I think Stella McCartney would understand. After all, she's famous for supporting animal rights and not using leather or fur in any of her collections. Following in her mother Linda's footsteps, Stella lives a vegan lifestyle and is one of the most "green" designers currently working.
Because of our animal-loving common ground (and her amazing designs, duh!), I am always looking forward to what Stella does next. Last season, her collection was dubbed one of the most wearable with entire outfits ready to be worn right off the runway. This season was no different. It began with her usual minimal, crisp designs with a peppering of denim shirts, dresses, and skirts thrown in. Just when I had her figured out, then came the fruit!
I was definitely thrown off when Sasha Pivovarova marched out in a tropical tunic reminiscent of Prada's Carmen Miranda tribute. This collection proved that Stella is capable of creating wearable every day pieces as well as garments for the quirky and kitsch.
