Stella McCartney’s headline-making AW23 show (you’ve probably seen photos of the models sharing the Manège de l'École Militaire with seven unharnessed white Camargue horses) was all about re-appropriating historical British equestrian codes in line with the designer’s responsible ethos. So, pieces like this skirt are a perfect nod to countryside styles, but with a signature McCartney twist. It’s crafted from regenagri® cotton denim to a boxy silhouette, then punctuated with a zip and slit that alluringly open up the front.
Stella is a girl’s girl, visible in designs that embrace femininity from a variety of different and subtle angles. The always-cool and famously-vegetarian brand uses biodegradable fabrics and no fur or leather, setting design and animal welfare on an equal footing, with unshakeable standards for both.
