Lovely Swan Prints at Stella McCartney Fall 2016 RTW

It will be a cold day in July when Stella McCartney abandons her lifelong vegetarian principium and starts using animal-derived fur, leather or wool in her designs. While most of the designers in the industry bring authentic fur and leather forefront as number one barometers of luxury and splendor, iron-willed McCartney carries on sticking to her doctrine, yet pulling off to score points with many fashionistas across the world. Today with the Stella McCartney fall/winter 2016-2017 RTW collection unveiled at Opéra Garnier Stella once more came to prove all and sundry that splendor and sultry are her things albeit without any fur and leather around.

Stella McCartney Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Paris Fashion Week

Stella seemed to be head over heels in love with elegant and graceful swans this time around and thank God it was not a swan song for her brand, but her bonanza period. We saw elegant swan prints all over hell’s half acre on black and grey slouchy oversized pants with long cuffs entirely hiding the shoes and on some sweaters with romantic ruffles on the bib and sleeves.

But Stella decided to go for all the marbles thus forwarding down the runway some lingerie-style pleated maxi dresses in rust, sandy brown and black, as well as a couple of golden and silver sequined tops, all of them demonstrating opened swan wings worked out either by lace or sequins. These stunners were indubitably crème de la crème pieces of the whole collection but no less interesting were those pleated pants in rust, black and bleached yellow with sequins scintillating here and there and shimmering velvet puffed coats with elongated silhouettes.

There were oversized pieces galore throughout the whole Stella McCartney fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection. Those coats with long sleeves hiding hands and the ruffled maxi dresses with voluminous surface aside, what actually freaked us out were those dresses unshapely tailored and without any curves showing. An ivory knitted outfit made an illusion of some fabric pieces just wrapped around the model’s body, while a lust red dress with turtleneck was amorphous in all possible ways starting from liquid sleeves and shoulders and ending with some bubble hems.

But if you are a great aficionado of form-fitting pieces Stella catered us to a couple of exquisite dresses as well, among which an icy blue pleated frock with lacy fragments on the bodice knocked our socks off, really. You need some caressing? Give a try to a tactile shirt with half velvet – half sheer tulle design and blue lace embroidery at the collar or a delectable frock divided into two equal velvet-silk panels.

Stella McCartney’s vision over jewelry was incompleteness. The single earrings were beaming over high and low, right and left which is a trend kick-started since last year. But Stella is definitely not a trend-follower; she is a trendsetter, for sure. A case in point was the half geometrical necklace spreading futuristic vibes all around.
