Back of 2009 Resort: Stella McCartney "I'm half New Yorker and I'm celebrating that side," said Stella McCartney at her garden party Resort presentation held in NYC. The air was filled with roses and jubilation as celebs and fans joined together on a cozy field of green at the Jefferson Market Garden to view the designer's American-inspired designs. Since her decision to forgo the usual, it was to no one's surprise that a runway was absent. Instead, models were found frolicking on the grass with lollipops in hand donning Stella's casually luxurious blazers, cropped pants, pleated shorts, and loose dresses. The designs were nothing short of delightful, wearable goods with classic and flattering cuts. The warm color palette of tans, dusty pinks, reds, and blues were cut into beautiful loose silhouettes and fine detailing. One of my favorites looks was a fluid jacket paired with a barely-there silk skirt, which was a perfect mix of retro and modern. All in all, the collection was a bevy of bohemian elements and classic styling. The unstructured blazers were quintessential Stella and the cropped pants were a definite Summer must-have item.

I usually love Stella but not so much this time. NickyV 9 years I dont fit into stella shoes, they're really narrow. i think the dresses are lovely, great colours and wearable! but I dont think they look any different from something you can buy at a local boutique by an upcoming designer who doesnt have over inflated price tags. JaimeLeah526 9 years I'm not in love with the colors. The blue color is okay I guess but nothing spectacular. jasmint 9 years I'm really lusting after some of these looks. RosaDilia 9 years It's alright. cynster 9 years I love the structure, colors and fit of this line. I wish I was rich. :/ DCStar 9 years What a wonderful idea!
