Stella McCartney’s newest 2022 Winter Collection is eco-friendly, made from 67% conscious materials, and is free from animal leather, features, and fur. She is an iconic English fashion designer and the daughter of singer-songwriter Paul McCartney and American photographer and Animal rights activist Linda McCartney.
Since the 50-year-old fashionista entered the fashion world, she has been known for her eco-conscious and innovative designs. She uses fur-free and leather-free Apparel and has a wide range of celebrity clientele. McCartney’s newest Winter 2022 collection is no exception and continues her environmentally sound goals.
The new collection, Stella By Stella, honors the famous American painter, sculptor, and printmaker Frank Stella. Stella is known for his minimalism, abstract work, and color sophistication, and still works and lives in New York City.
Held the day before International Women’s Day, McCartney’s collection honors women as creators and collectors. The runway show was held in Paris on the top floor of the Centre Pompidou.
Oversized silhouettes, silk dresses, bold shoulders, lingerie, and lace are just some of the ways to describe the impeccable garments in the collection. The pieces have both masculine and feminine characteristics, bold prints, and draped fabrics. The collection boasts sensuality with delicate fabrics, chain fringe, and edgy boxy overcoats.
McCartney was inspired by Stella’s 1995 piece, Spectralia, which has a record high bid for $28.1 million. Spectralia was displayed on dresses and branded onto tailored suits. Stella’s V Series inspired the designs of the knitwear sets and coats. Stella’s bright colors and shapes influenced the limited-edition jewelry in the collection.
It’s impressive to see such a big name in the fashion world using sustainable and recycled materials wherever she can. McCartney introduced a monogram shoulder bag made from grape waste, sneakers made of repurposed and recycled materials, and vegan stretch boots.
Leather, feathers, and fur are obtained through cruel practices that rely on exploiting animals for money. These industries don’t care about the animals as long as they profit. McCartney’s collection shows the fashion world that fashion can be done without exploiting animals.
