Stella McCartney shows Fall 2012 in New York City

At an intimate presentation, cocktail party followed by her new store opening, Stella McCartney began 2012 as she means to go on.

Stella McCartney launches Pre-Fall 2012 and opens new Soho storeStella McCartney’s in between seasons presentations are always something to look forward to. Her autumn 2012 collection was held in New York, at One If By Land, Two If By Sea, a restaurant often voted the most romantic in the city. Models wandered around the candlelit cocktail party drinking champagne and playing pool and backgammon. The roaring fires, huge bouquets of flowers, photography books and a jazz band playing in the corner, meant McCartney’s presentation felt more like a convivial house party, not a stress inducing rushed runway show. There were vegan hors d’oeuvres. McCartney’s autumn accessories collection – also vegan – were on display in a room overlooking a winter garden. – - read more

Classy 2012 Resort Wear by STELLA McCARTNEY

In a garden in Manhattan’s West Village — a location perfectly suited to the classic vacation concepts of leisure and fun — Stella McCartney presented a playful Resort 2012 collection. Models milled about in a vibrant mix of color and prints: multi-colored stripes, oversized Hawaiian florals, black-and-white herringbone, and shades of orange and lemon. “All this color and print is about exciting and reenergizing people,” McCartney explained, “and it’s nice for everyone to see that you can actually enjoy and live in these clothes.”  photos courtesy of  Stella McCartney 

Stella McCartney’s mind was elsewhere this season: Hawaii. “It’s such a rich, visual place to start,” she said. From there, she grew a collection full of hibiscus and surfer prints, deck-chair stripes, seersucker and neon-tipped accessories, giving off a joyful, relaxed vibe. McCartney keeps it from going too much over the top, though, with consistent clean shapes. The sportier silhouettes, including a culotte-style jumpsuit, long garden-party skirts and shorts paired with rounded capes, suited the croquet-playing models in the Greenwich Village garden where the presentation was held. The dressier outfits, including a black tuxedo with an almost tails-length jacket and skinny-at-the-ankle pants, and a white dress embroidered with bows, complemented the flutes of champagne offered at the party-like preview. McCartney also gave a nod to the mod looks of London in the 1960s, offering a series of houndstooth looks — sometimes mixing those with menswear-inspired pieces, such as a sunshine-yellow blazer with wide lapel and crisp shirt. “Tailoring is updated with a new silhouette,” she explained in her notes, referring to a jacket with notched lapel. She also showed what she described as a “cropped cigarette French cuff trouser and blouses with three-dimensional bow embroidery in a palette of black with chalk or Tokyo blue with tobacco.”
