Stella McCartney Summer 2016

A feeling of fearlessness is expressed through the unexpected layering of masculine bold checks and stripes to create a play on feminine transparency with rich and graphic textures.

Contrast color pleated dresses quiver and float in sharp sculptural layers of bright blue, spring green, chili red and pink. Either thigh-skimming or floor-grazing, their engineered hemlines rise and fall to reveal tempting flashes of leg.

Knitwear sits close to the skin. Polo tops in wrapping shapes with sporty striped edging. Pleated ribs with cut-aways stretch to reveal slices of sky, berry and mint.Raw indigo denim is highly structured with visible white stitching, whilst two-toned ribs with undulating movement feature extreme fringing.

Clean tailoring reflects the ease of summer in dusty rose, tan and black. Trousers are wide, yet the silhouette is elongated and free, retaining a sensual connection to the body. Monochromestatements in organic cotton piqué shirting and black summer knit tailoring. Scoop necklines expose and accentuate the female form.

Inspired by abstract sculptures, ribbons are distilled into primitive swirls and refined spirals layered on embroidered mesh in pure white and black, or chili red on berry.

A unique airtex effect is created using transparent eyelet embroidery. Asymmetric or floor length, they stand out in acid shades oflemon, bright orange,cobalt blue, and black and white.

Accessories include a modern take on the Riviera opensandals with sporty soles. Cherry tinted sustainable wooden platform clogs in nude, tan and black. Wicker and alter nappa bags with round buckles and gold chainmail. Oversize aviator sunglasses with a square colour contrasted detail, in a palette that complements the tones of the season.
