Paris Fashion Week Day Six

“Coming out of winter into summer is always a re-boot for me. I’m looking at fragility, a summer palette, and to translate that into the idea that a woman can have a quiet confidence,” said Stella McCartney backstage.
The show she sent out — with its culottes, shoulder buckles, and cut-outs peep-showing the body — was not as “quiet” as all that. But it was confident and had a sense of freedom as the models stepped out in sporty clothes or silken dresses rippling in the wind of movement on the runway.
There were even cut-outs on what looked like beige suede — a trend of the moment — but was of course, in tune with Stella’s ethics, a fabric dress.
The designer added colour and pattern — pale Madras checks or watercolour mixes of flowers — that seemed to follow a general theme for the Spring/Summer 2015 season of feminist turned feminine.
Although the McCartney vision may be based on herself, she has come a long way as a designer and the shaping of everything from knits to denim had fashion flare. The cut-outs, opening windows on the body, were particularly subtle. Perhaps only a strong female designer can associate visible flesh with freedom, rather than seduction.
