Stella McCartney Resort 2017 Collection

Stella McCartney’s November is a busy month for sure, with both her Stella McCartney resort 2017 collection and her first-ever menswear line being unveiled to the world. While the latter was, of course, inspired by her dad, the Stella McCartney cruise 2017 line sort of reminds us of her mom’s passion for animals, which surely led the designer to focus on a more conscious, sustainable and cruelty-free kind of fashion.

Both lines were showcased together at a star-studded event at Abbey Road music studios, where the Beatles recorded their iconic albums back in the Sixties, leaving the audience in awe. Furthermore, both lines also denoted Stella McCartney’s willingness to treat us to an eclectic variety of staples that could fully represent our personalities, from the preppy-chic to the more rock ‘n’ roll ones.

“I want to deliver to men what I deliver to women. A wardrobe, a choice and effortless modern clothes,” she said. A press release said the fur-free and leather-free apparel and accessories collection will “take a modern approach to menswear, encouraging seasonless wardrobing, while adhering to the brand’s responsible and sustainable ethics,” Stella McCartney told the New York Times back in June.

As for her resort 2017 collection, McCartney focused on three main themes, namely a more conventionally bon ton one, a structured look and a mannish-inspired one.

The former is characterized by utterly cute dog prints, the figures of which got emblazoned on almost everything, from button-down shirts to knee-length flared skirts. Trench coats, long white dresses and curve-hugging Seventies-inspired outfits with bell-bottom trousers and turtleneck sweaters also recall the bon ton motif, yet in a more casual way that is also dear to Stella McCartney herself, too.

Sheer blouses with pleated hems, as well as oversized see-through tops in pastel colors are the epitome of classics, and will give anyone some cool and fresh holiday-ready vibes.

Dogs are, however, not the only animal prints seen in this resort collection, as the designer proved once again one can show off such prints without hurting any actual animal, as seen in the range of tiger-inspired skirts, zebra jackets and equestrian-infused motifs.

The latter introduces us to one of this collection’s secondary themes, namely country/rock ‘n’ roll music (it is always Stella McCartney, after all!). Leather jackets and denims interrupt the lineup with their edgy attitudes, the motifs, lines and silhouettes of which also helped the collection get its more mannish-inspired side.

As for the remaining pieces, McCartney’s willingness to focus on a more haute couture look is palpable, with tons of structured figures and heavily layered proposals dominating the scene. Such looks might be neither easy to style, nor easy to wear on a daily basis, but undeniably remind us of the designer’s good hand when it comes to imposing creations.

From now on, McCartney’s resort collections are shifting in schedules, and will be presented in November rather than May. She is not the only designer who is following a similar decision, as more and more creative directors, such as Mary Katrantzou, are doing the same. It is mainly due to the fact that the resort proposals arrive at stores in November, meaning that the clients get a see-now-buy-in-a-few-days sort of lineup.
