A look from the new Stella McCartney Menswear Film

Stella McCartney first debuted her eponymous womenswear label during Paris Fashion Week in 2001 (following a successful tenure as Creative Director of Chloé); in 2017, the Central Saint Martins trained designer added a full  menswear collection to her offering available for SS17. Paris may to this day be the location of her womenswear shows; the Stella McCartney man is firmly rooted in London. The first collection combines the best of UK Fashion history and expertise – both past and recent. Knitwear comes striped, frayed, fringed and in innovative proportions, cashmere has been regenerated into vivid V-fronted sweaters and that ’90s Britpop perennial, the shell suit, comes in a fine knit variety. There are cotton T-shirts emblazoned with slogans, including ‘Nice one’ and ‘Members And Non-members Only’, which are worn best with Stella McCartney’s tailoring. Available as both single- and double-breasted, McCartney suits add streetwear wearability to Savile Row heritage; after all, a young McCartney gained experience working with her father’s tailor Edward Sexton.

To present the label’s first menswear collection in it’s natural habitat, Stella McCartney has recruited filmmaker Sharna Osborne who follows a cast of young brits through the streets of London.
