Runway Report: Stella McCartney SS18

Stella McCartney is one designer who has taken eco-friendly fashion to multiple levels throughout the seasons. With faux leather bags and shoes, SS18 saw the introduction of her famous ‘skin-free skin’ on ready-to-wear pieces. With her invite taking the physical form of a “trashion bag” and her having recently signed a contract allowing the re-sell of her past pieces, Stella is truly on her way to making a large, green footprint.

Boasting a color palette of watermelon green, magenta, Cadbury’s purple, azul, corn yellow, cream, and denim wash, the new season is looking prim, proper and potent. A skin-toned, animal effect shirt-come-jacket was cinched at the waist and paired with faux leather sandals, a great holiday ensemble. On the other side, came wide straight-leg pants in cream, paired with a balloon-sleeved top printed with a tribal microphone pattern, ideal for that casual, yet smart Friday.

Designers should definitely try and take a leaf out of Stella McCartney’s book in terms of re-commerce, green invites and a collection that is friendly to the earth. After all, if the collection can be kind and feel this good, then why not?
