Stella Mccartney trained with the tailor Edward Sexton on Savile Row after graduating from Central St Martins, and menswear has been in her design DNA ever since. From clean silhouettes to sexy trouser suits, she has spent decades translating the key tenets of menswear for women. It was perhaps inevitable, then, that she should finally start making menswear for actual men. Sold on a see-now/buy-now model, the clothes will be leather- and shearling-free. There will be two drops a year of a full collection, encompassing suits and separates, outerwear and accessories, with eyewear in the pipeline. The spring 2017 collection includes unusually proportioned suits in black, ink and racing green, granddad, dress and military shirt styles, and cargo pants, creased chinos and striped pyjamas alongside drawstring shorts, loose boiler suits and bombers galore. It’s the same tailored, offbeat hipster look that has had legions of women enraptured for years. Stella stuff.
