Paris Fashion Week: Stella McCartney Spring/Summer 15
The urban, modern woman is always at the forefront of Stella McCartney's mind, and today she proved that her clothes are able to empower through comfort. A loose and liberating silhouette was maximised, with McCartney presenting ribbed knit dresses crafted from organic yarn across an army of models that included Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell and Sam Rollinson – the Brit pack.
The garments were knotted and twisted to expose panels of skin, with some dresses accessorised by oversized statement necklaces crafted from PVC.
Parachute anoraks are also back with a vengeance, this season worn layered over all-in-one boiler suits in matching silk satin voile, and jackets were effortlessly elegant and cool all at once.
Eveningwear was kept simple with fluid lines, and a patchwork print gown in light organza shone. A series of knotted flat sandals that mirrored the knitwear stood out as classic McCartney, who's desire to empower women through practical and ethical fashion has long served as a source of inspiration.
In terms of front row there was Salma Hayek and Francios-Henri Pinault making a public display of affection, and feminist icon Neneh Cherry who watched the show before playing at its afterparty tonight.
