This season the British designer opted for a more established milieu to showcase her new collection:
the uptown headquarters of the Americas Society. “You know I’m actually half New Yorker, from this part of town,”
said the designer. “And the collection speaks to that.” If you happened to step through the society’s double doors last night,
past the unicorn ice sculpture, up the wooden staircase, and into a chandelier-lit vestibule, you would have found a modern tableau
of sophistication: models dressed in mixed-media velvet and silk dresses, having their portraits painted by a trio of artists.
In fact, the languid color-block looks were reminiscent of Abstract Expressionist works hanging in any number of storied museums
north of Fifty-ninth Street. In the hallway stood a cluster of girls in bold, striped cocktail-hour cropped pants and blouses—one
of whom had an oversize camel coat casually thrown over her shoulder, a nod,said McCartney,
to the wardrobe of her eternally chic American mother, Linda.
Basically, this is everything I want to wear and more. Stella's collections are always so refined,
and I'm really getting a refined and minimal note from the Pre-Fall 2013 collections. Totally in LOVE.
