Stella has swept me off my vintage sandals — this hasn't happened for a few seasons with her. I don't know if it's the overall hippie feel, the flowing watercolor prints or the sharp, yet soft, khaki tailoring, but her Spring collection is beautifully feminine.
With the lightweight touch that is Stella, her flower ladies were also in the company of easy breezy girls in neutrals and blues. A cool paisley print was also lovely, as were the ruffles, crochet details and some slight Native American beading on the accessories — love. It was also sleepy time, with silky soft dresses and separates resembling both womens and menswear pajamas, but her strong tailoring nipped any overly ethereal feel in the bed, I mean, bud! My one gripe: just say no to onesies! Stella obviously has a soft spot for them and I do not concur.
All of this beauty was set against a "vertical vegetal wall" created by botanist Patrick Blanc. As you all know, Stella is a vegetarian designer with a purpose.
