Brand New Stella
I haven't been a huge fan of recent Stella McCartney collections, however her Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear collection makes me a little giddy. The majority of the collection was comprised of muted autumn colours (black, grey, deep burgundy), with splashes of houndstooth, electric blue and vivid green. Despite my love of subdued colours, the electric blue slipdress (pictured above) is pure perfection of uncomplicated elegance. The inky blue leather jacket with over sized lapels only adds to the effortless glamour. As I've said before, I'm huge fan of Balmain since it's reincarnation with Christophe Decarnin, yet the simple, clean lines and accessibility of McCartney's collection makes it easy to forget about wrap dresses, studded heels and military embellishments. Well almost.
