Cat Ladies Unite! The Stella McCartney Pre Fall ’16 Collection

By Arwa Lodhi

It’s a fact: we love cats. They’re internet stars for a reason – cats have personality. Cats are independent, so when a cat takes a shine to you, it feels like a compliment. Cats have gorgeous fur, which is why many big ones are still (very tragically!) hunted for their fur.

You will never find any actual fur (or leather. Or feathers) in a Stella McCartney collection, thank goodness. But you will find loads of cat inspired prints – especially this season.

The designer has created a group of highly Instagrammable animal patterned coats, cat printed blouses and dresses, and has even created her look book with cats as very glamorous models. Her oversize cheetah-print bomber and short-pile fake leopard skin coat piped with fluffy panels simply  screamed  rock ‘n’ roll insouciance. The catty theme continued via a kitschy kitty portrait tapestry jacquard on a wrap skirt, tailored coat,  ’70s-style football-jumper blouse and a silk dress.

A rock vibe was very much present during her presentation of the collection in LA (which the designer chose as she says it’s brimming with creativity right now). George Harrison’s son, Dhani’s, band, Thenewno2, opened the show, and were followed by The Beach Boys, Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson, and more. The likes of  Gwyneth Paltrow, Beck, and Mary J. Blige  were all there to witness the evening and enjoy the personalised pizzas and old-school arcade games provided to further entertain guests.

Not a feline fan? No worries. There was also the perfect black pantsuit (want!); dramatic new versions of McCartney’s oversized  cable-knit sweaters; a vegan friendly shearling coat; girlish asymmetrical separates in striped and spotted peace silks; and spiral-cut eyelet dresses slashed with diagonal zippers.

But we can’t forget about Stella’s vegan accessories! There were plenty  of soon-to-be-It bags featuring  spherical wristlets in animal-print faux furs; a giant gremlin ring; a cat-printed scarf and charm-bracelet adorned mules. Top of our list? The long tongued fake crocodile skin block heeled loafers, adorned with a huge brass hoop.
