Stella McCartney has offered up a line of structured coats and colourful crochet for her fall/winter 2019 collection.
The British fashion designer held her latest presentation at the Opera Garnier as part of Paris Fashion Week on Monday morning (04Mar19), with the show drawing in a number of celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Karlie Kloss, Janelle Monae, Doutzen Kroes, and Alexa Chung.
Inside the opulent venue, McCartney had a runway placed down the centre, with the stark white floor printed with the names of people who had contributed to the #ThereSheGrows campaign, which is seeking to raise funds for the Leuser Ecosystem in Sumatra, Indonesia.
To kick off the presentation, a model donned a brown belted kimono-inspired jacket which was paired with grey platform boots.
A parade of coats followed, with Russian star Natalia Vodianova sporting a black trench coat made of a faux leather fabric – in keeping with McCartney’s dedication to shunning animal products and instead experimenting with new innovative materials.
Another model sported a dark blue Neoprene sleeveless jacket over a long skirt and chunky boots, while the collection also included more conventional styles for the winter months, such as a grey trench coat with black button detailing, a red faux fur number, and a dark green duffel coat.
While McCartney stuck with a palette of tan, brown and green for the most part, she interspersed the line with some pops of colour, with highlights including a rainbow crochet dress, a canary yellow dress with wide shoulders, and a silky emerald green ensemble which was paired with matching accessories.
Other highlights included a uniform-style khaki green jumpsuit with cargo pockets on the trousers which was modelled by Kaia Gerber, a flowing grey dress, and the last outfit of the show, a kimono-like dress made from a floral print fabric.
Paris Fashion Week continues on Monday afternoon with presentations from Giambattista Valli and Alexander McQueen.
