Launching a men's line was a logical step for the designer, who after graduating from St. Martins College trained with Edward Sexton, one of the best men's tailors in Savile Row. The public could get the first impression of McCartney's debut men's collection at the Stella McCartney women's spring-summer 2017 show in Paris, looking at the costume of Stella's husband, Alisder Willis, the creative director of the Hunter brand.
Yesterday's show in London demonstrated that the designer's approach to menswear is almost the same as for womenswear. Comfortable and practical clothes for men of all ages - from McCartney's husband to her father's peers, Paul - easily transformable depending on the taste of the wearer.
According to the designer himself, creating the first collection, she was inspired by youth subcultures from rastamans to ravers. Hence the mixture of costumes with bright prints, practical macs and T-shirts with ambiguous slogans. The first models from the Stella McCartney men's collection will hit stores in January 2017.>
