The anticipation is finally over! While you got a little preview of what Stella McCartney has in store for autumn 2010-2011, I’m here to give you the deets on the new collection.
Here at Lingerie Talk, it’s no surprise that I adore Stella McCartney. In fact, when it comes to the latest sensual creations from the endearing vegan designer, I am especially enamored. So I thought it best to list a number of reasons of why I hold such a special place for the F/W 2010-2011 collection:
- Muted tones. I love a neutral and since McCartney herself seems to love a nude tone, even in the winter months (yay!), I am even more smitten. Also, greige (which I spoke about here), is ‘in’ this season and just so happens to have a place within the McCartney F/W collection.
- Kim Noorda. I have a girl crush on the Dutch model who happens to be the face and bod of SM Lingerie and who exudes that effortless model-look — which I am perpetually striving to achieve. Le sigh.
- Style names. How can you not like lingerie with cheeky names like Molly Humming, Lavinia Hiding and Lulu Reading? I know…it’s impossible.
- Underwear of the Week. Stella’s classic underwear of the week packs (which apart from being too cute for words, keep your sanity by reminding you what day it is) are available in two new themes this season: “Silly Knickers of the Week” consist of raised embroidered doodles, and “Souvenir Knickers” feature embroidered scenes from New York, London, Paris and L.A.
- Minimalist advertising. From Stella’s dreamy S/S campaign to this season’s similarly styled lookbook, albeit within an interior setting, there’s just something refreshing about a designer who knows that less really is more.
- The lingerie. Okay, I know…obvious, but without it this list would never have been conceived. Some of the styles I am currently lusting after are the Sam Partying contour bra, the Elodie Hopping (seriously, the name puts a smile on my face) contour bra in a rich emerald green, the Caroline Wriggling bustier-like bra and the Sam Partying playsuit. Gorge.
Well, hopefully after reading the list you too will be smitten with Stella’s new collection! And just in case you need more of a reason, the feminine styles below will undoubtedly convert you.
