Ahead of Paris Fashion Week this February, Stella McCartney has offered us a sneak peek of what's to come in her gorgeous new season Autumn 2011 collection.
Taking her signature clean lines and modern silhouettes into exaggerated proportions, Stella McCartney's Autumn 2011 collection is playful but wearable using a pared-down palette of navy and camel mixed with hits of crimson and emerald.
Graphic print meets bold patterns as tweeds, layered knitwear and masculine tailoring takes centre stage in the key pieces. Textures play a starring role also, with an array of silk, wool, corduroy, gross grain and lace. Exposed seams, over-sized collars and lengths give the collection an exaggerated flourish and accessories feature patent pumps, knee high boots and colour block plexi clutches.
Showcasing the new designs in a special presentation in New York the stunning collection will be hitting the Paris runway next month for Fashion Week.
