stella mccartney spring 2011

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.

  1. Ah yes this was a lovely collection indeed! My favs would have to be the first look, the 4th one with Freja, and the Abbey one!


  2. Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

    The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
