Stella McCartney is inspired by naturalist Miriam Rothschild and Knepp Farm in Horsham for Cruise.

January 5, 2023

The Stella McCartney Resort 2023 collection is rooted in themes of rewilding and rechilding, made for an untamed Stella woman living freely and in harmony with nature. Made from 85% responsible materials, it is the brand’s most sustainable collection to date.

The collection is captured dichotomously in both natural and industrial settings, platforming this season’s mood-lifting palette of botanical shades of sunflower yellow, rose pink, poppy red and lime green.

Fluid fabric wraps around rings on double-satin dresses with deep necklines bursting into petal-like cut-outs and sleeveless cape tops. Sexy bodycon dresses in sunflower yellow compact knit explode into silk bubble skirts. Compact knit and silky double-satin dresses are made of wide strips stitched together, descending and detaching into flowing bands.

Playful transparent windows on trouser hems are complemented by broderie anglaise, taking circular shapes encrusted into the busts of black all-in-ones, cream Alter Mat skirts and barely-there strappy dresses in poppy red and lily white. Hand-crocheted flowers are stitched together into patchwork dresses and knit jumpers, alongside naive graphic Tree of Life knitwear and plant-based light-wash denim with a vintage-effect floral digital print.

New glamour comes from gold lurex shirting wrapping over the collar and body-skimming dresses with vee necklines covered in sheer mesh. Marigold pleated dresses feature leg slits and chain hardware along the waistline, while double-satin black mini dresses have diamond belting.

Resort 2023 is free from animal leather, feathers and fur, and features forest-friendly viscose, organic cotton, regenerated nylon, recycled polyester, linen, Refibra cotton and Humana denim made from textile waste, Sorona recyclable and partly plant-based quilting, regenerated cashmere and RWS wool from traceable sources.
