Skirts in the style of the 1950-s, dresses and prints in the style of the 1960-s, satin silk, lace and hosiery are all included into the evening collection by Stella McCartney for the winter 2012-13 season. The collection pleases with its happy colors and accents (the gold belt will turn any dress into an evening gown!).
The historical allusions are easy to guess: Dior’s full skirts, black and white dresses reminiscent of the famous dress by Yves Saint Laurent in Avedon’s photograph “Dovima with Elephants”, or almost a copy of the dress from Borodulin’s SS-2012 collection, which could have never been seen by Stella McCartney… For those, who like discreet outrage, there are dresses with insets of skin color. Kate Moss tries one of them on in the lookbook.
