Another debut: Stella McCartney’s menswear collection
"I've long desired to marry the Stella woman to a man and now the time just feels so right", said Stella McCartney of her menswear debut. That desire has finally been fulfilled. And for a designer known and loved for her womenswear designs that effortlessly mixes femininity with masculinity, menswear is certainly nothing new to this lady. After all, McCartney has dwelled in men's tailoring at Savile Row tailor Edward Sexton.
Imagine apparel that her father, Paul McCartney and her husband, Alasdhair Willis would wear. Basically, a mix of Sir McCartney's musical and subculture influences and Willis' dashingly dapper trademark. Sweater tracksuit, check. Embroidered trousers, check. Plaid, check. Slogan T-shirts, check, check. Let's just say, if you've been looking for inherently cool pieces fused with fine British tailoring and a whole lot of attitude, Stella McCartney's menswear line is what you've been waiting for. And wait no more. Mr Porter launches 7 ready-to-wear pieces (out of 24) today.
