Brand Spotlight: 5 Reasons To Love Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney

The brand being spotlighted this month is Stella McCartney. She happens to be the daughter off Paul McCartney, from the British band The Beatles. But don’t let her seemingly posh background fool you. She knows her way around mixing feminine styles, with sharp tailored edges. And most importantly, she knows exactly no matter your background, or culture what it feels like to be a woman.

Her ways of adding that feminine touch, makes all her garments look so beautiful to the touch. You can really see and feel a mixed sense of emotions. Most importantly, you feel what it is like to step into her world. McCartney defines what it means to be an authentic designer. She echoes an elegant spirit that is present in the pieces she puts out. Most of all, you can see the lightness off her especially, when she speaks so highly about her mum being a major inspiration to her.

 There is this real human spirit from her that shines above the coldness and the white noise of the industry. Her effortless feel, with old faithful pieces, is truly what makes her iconic of what she creates.

Her menswear background is phenomenal

After graduating, she shadowed Savile Row tailor, Edward Sexton to learn more about the craft. She is renewed for her sharp, simple tailoring with a feminine edge and considerable approach to wearable design."It's not about what it looks like in the studio or on the runway," "It's what it looks like on a real person that matters. That isn't easy, but it's what's fun."

She's an environmentalist and supporter of animal rights

Following in the footsteps of her mother Linda, She is a fearless supporter of animal rights and a strict vegetarian. She refuses to use leather or fur in any of her designs, instead her shoes are made of vinyl or plastic and all belts and bags made from raffia and fabric.

She collaborated with Adidas

She launched a joint-venture line with Adidas, establishing a long-term partnership with the cooperation, in September 2004. The collection called simply Adidas by Stella McCartney, has since grown to include a wide range of different sportswear including yoga, tennis, winter sports and golf.

Her handbags are amazing

She always pulls from different sources of inspiration, that takes a true innovative artist to do. As a designer, she knows how to make a handbag, which is a must-have accessory into something fun, interesting, and very feminine.

She kicks the logo trends arse

Logo mania is always going to be a trend. Whether we are all for it or not. But one thing is for sure, McCartney knows how to work the logo thing to her advantage. Not only does her bold logo look cool, and not tacky, but she touches on classic styles, as well as street wear, and fully kicks its arse, without apologising which I absolutely love.
