STELLA MCCART­NEY

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

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.
