Tobias, Adaline, Sammi, Hechi and Perla are purrfect models and the stars of Stella McCartney’s lookbook for the Autumn 2016 collection. The cats were not personally invited to attend a private lunch in honour of Stella McCartney at Neiman Marcus NorthPark last week, but knowing cats they probably had better things to do.
Besties doing their best together makes perfect sense, and a little bit of Goop inspired McCartney is surely a no-brainer for success. Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella McCartney have collaborated on a capsule collection that will be sold on Paltrow’s healthy lifestyle, foodie and shopping site: Goop.
Like sorbet served between courses, I am going to transition to the next season with a cleansing sweep of monochromatic styles before the abundance of fall colour parades into my wardrobe.
I’ve selected a few relaxed sportswear styles and easygoing statement pieces that create striking must-haves and will last far longer than one season. Great investment basics in black and white can be styled season, upon season, never growing dull. I love the oversized graphic argyle jumper layered with the leather skirt, and rest those heels and run around in a pair of skull-bearing loafers—tough chic. The sweater dress by 3.1 Phillip Lim, sans skinny pants, works just as well, and top off these casual looks with a Reed Krakoff bag, appropriately named, Gym Tote.
Stella McCartney: Large Diamond Roll Neck Jumper $865, Reed Krakoff: Gym Tote $990, Markus Lupfer: Leather Circle skirt $985, 3.1 Phillip Lim Fading Houndstooth Sweater Dress $525, Alexander McQueen: Skull-Vamp Suede Loafer $645.
