Stella McCartney taps Kendall Jenner for Winter ’23 campaign
Horse girl winter! Avid equestrian Kendall Jenner showed a side to her we’re not used to seeing in fashion campaigns, as she posed amongst white ponies in the Camargue Salt Flats of France. Tipping its hat to the equine references in Stella McCartney’s Winter collection, the accompanying campaign enlisted horse whisperer and rescuer Jean-Francois Pignon to achieve the images of Jenner, which were captured by Harley Weir. McCartney, who’s a noted animal lover and advocate for animal rights, looked to horses and their connection with humans for the collection, which was presented earlier this year at the Manège de L’École Militaire. “I knew this season’s Stella girl had to love horses as much as I do,” the designer said. “Kendall has been riding since she was a kid, just like me, and has her own ranch; you can see how at ease she is around these sensitive creatures, and them with her. Capturing this connection brings Horse Power to life, both through the fashion and the vision.” As for the garments, they’re standouts from what’s McCartney’s most responsible winter offering to date. The collection is crafted from 92% conscious materials such as cruelty-free plant-based leather. Indeed, even the Frayme and S-Wave bags are derived from apple waste, while the Jenner-approved riding boots are made from grape waste. The brand also teased that a second phase of the campaign will be unveiled this fall.
