Stella McCartney Spring Summer 2013

I started off loving this Stella McCartney show, but then all the ideas that were pleasing to the eye mutated to monstrosities. The amazing sheer sweatshirt evolved to chav-like tracksuit outfits that made me wonder if she was inspired by the London riots when designing this collection. The bright colours began to work against her, when put into outfits that were supposed to be a rendition of designer sportswear. But despite her Olympics uniform experience, this season McCartney failed at at capitalizing on the athletic wear references, miserably. There were also some dropped waists that were practically dragging on the floor (WAY too low), more of those pantsuit onesies (who REALLY wants to wear those?) and suits that can’t be called tailoring, as they didn’t tailor to the female body, they fought it in every way possible. Thank god this wasn’t beautiful because I loathe Stella McCartney and am resentful when her collections look good.

I love…

the sheer sweatshirt, I want one.

a beautiful orange, a fantastic sleeve, and a sexy hem.

I loathe…

what looks like a grass green tracksuit.

a waistline so low it is just stupid.

an unshapely strapless dress that results in armpit muffin top.

absolute horror.

the suit that would reduce a proper tailor to tears.

    The green totally killed it for me, the orange and blue pieces were great. (especially the pleating effect in the last couple of dresses)

    Ooh, that was awful. And those bags! Horrendous.
