Animals on the catwalk, or rather models with animal costumes. To send a clear message: furs are better off on them than on us humans. This is the new message from Stella McCartney‘s F / W 2020 collection. 10 models dressed in “animalier” onesies, including a cow, a pig, a rabbit, a fox and a crocodile who closed the show. Some of them had shoulder bags on one shoulder, others greeted guests who were seated on reusable cubes inside the plastic and carbon neutral exhibition space in the Opéra Garnier in Paris.
The focal point of the collection is a small essay on the new environmentally friendly fibers used in the collection. More than shapes and colors, the models such as recycled cashmere and sheepskin “no cruently” make headlines in the models of the paladin designer of the environment. The palette is a mixture of earth tones, minerals, sand, hazelnut, clay, walnut and navy blue.
For the British designer, the celebration of nature and its inhabitants is an essential point in the conception of its collections. The Paris Fashion Week 2020 collection is an inspiration to the works of the French painter and sculptor Erté, an artist that the designer met when she was a child.
Last but not least, the show was set up using objects from the previous one and obviously plastic free. The cocktail menu was also vegan.
