Imagine our surprise when we received an abbreviated version of this look book in the mail and it was titled "Stella McCartney Spring 2009". This was just a week or two after the Stella McCartney Spring 2009 show had commenced in Paris and we were amazed at the speediness of the look book (never mind that we receive the paper artifacts in the first place--another topic entirely). Upon further inspection we realized that the looks we recognized were not those which we had seen on the runway in Paris but in those which we remember affront a grassy backdrop of some sort....and then it hit us, "Ohhhhh, this is Resort". Well this midseason offering, eighty-odd looks in all, is hardly something to squeeze between two proper seasons and so McCartney has titled this collection "Spring" and her collection that we saw in Paris "Summer". Although this will undoubtedly jumble everyone's tagging a bit, we think the re-titling completely appropriate. To top it all off we can't even claim that the collection is in need of editing--we think this plethora of pieces will suit the Stella McCartney customer just fine.
