A strict fur- and leather-free philosophy, coupled with her signature style of sharp tailoring and sexy femininity, has sealed Stella McCartney’s place as one of Britain’s most lauded designers.
The launch of Stella McCartney’s eponymous ready-to-wear and accessories collection in 2001 met great acclaim. Fragrances, lingerie, sunglasses and kids’ collections followed. Stella McCartney now operates 17 free-standing stores in locations including Manhattan’s SoHo, London’s Mayfair, LA’s West Hollywood and Paris’s Palais Royal. This year, Stella McCartney was appointed Team GB’s Creative Director for the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, in partnership with adidas.
