Pre-Fall 2011: Swooning for Stella

by Daniel Chivu

Chic has a confession! Stella McCartney’s pre-fall 2011 collection made us swoon like a preteen at a Bieber concert. Gone were the popped-collar denim separates and Hampton-approved prints of spring. (Sad? Non!) In their place was a modern bent on classic Stella-isms we’ve always adored: boxy double-breasted overcoats, lacy party frocks, mannish blazers tailored to sophistication, and knit sweater dresses swathed in vermillion, midnight, camel, and emerald. For fall, expect more ladylike dressing from Ms. McCartney, accented with edgey metal trimmed handbags (like her famous Falabella in “ox blood” crimson) and capes. Lots of capes!
