Summary: The beauty of Stella McCartney is in the effortlessness of her designs. Brightly hued satin tuxedo jackets, slouchy cropped pants moving across the runway with the perfect amount of swish and sway, neutral florals that seamlessly drape the body, and enough asymmetry to keep everything interesting. Where other designers design to break boundaries and test limits, Stella McCartney excels overwhelmingly in her ability to keep woman look chic, easy, and sexy, while keeping her looks eternally fresh and never over styled. Even playing with denim – a fabric that very rarely gets worked in full force on the runway — in her incorporation of denim skirts and dresses, Stella's Spring collection appeals to every woman, without denying anyone their right to look fabulous. Experimenting with tailoring, she features a wide variety of styles and technique: ruffled baby doll dresses and elaborately tiered bohemian blouses juxtaposed against the sleek cuts of one this season's best boyfriend blazers. Bottom line: there's not a look in this collection that isn't a must-have. Stella's pieces are pieces you'll have forever.
