I was expecting blazers and a strongly manifested sartorial masculinity in Stella McCartney’s Spring Summer 2011 Collection. I wasn’t ready for such a simple expression of all the above. Less is more, it’s true they say that. Sometimes, however, less is really close to nothing.
And that’s how Stella’s collection made me feel. I had a hard time choosing something I liked or something I’d see myself wearing. The silhouettes, though feminine, were cut by man tailored vests. Even so, where the man tailored vests were absent, some huge, disproportionate volume was there to axe the feminine silhouette away and replace it with a potato sack. I know pregnancy can make you feel this way, but really, Stella? You absolutely had to do this? (you can see photos from the entire collection here; click through to see the catwalk video)
