When Stella McCartney announced late last year that she was expanding into menswear, the fashion world was hardly surprised. After all, her apprenticeship under Savile Row tailor Edward Sexton after graduating from Central St. Martins meant that her, what many had dubbed, “inevitable move” into menswear wasn’t without knowledge or experience. 

McCartney wanted to create menswear for actual men. “I want to deliver to men what I deliver to women —  a wardrobe, a choice and effortless modern clothes.”

This fall, McCartney has chosen to pair slim and sculptured styles with relaxed outerwear by contrasting sporty silhouettes with English heritage fabrics such as wool and plaid. A blurring of formalwear and sportswear as seen in bombers and baseball jackets decorated with slogans and tiger print pattern being paired with high-waisted slim fit trousers, as well as overcoats made of performance fabrics together with houndstooth checks. 

Staying true to brand’s ethos the extensive use of sustainable materials including organic cotton, denim and jersey as well as regenerated cashmere, sustainable viscose, recycled nylon and polyester and eco alter nappa is within the entire collection.
