At Stella McCartney

So, the big discussion after the Stella McCartney show was about this print.

Editors either loved it or hated it.

And you?

It is not very flattering for most of the women, but who cares, I love the idea and it is unususal!

blech. to the user that said it reminded them of her pineapple print: the pineapple print was great, this: horrible, the grapefruit looks yummy though.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:20 AM) : 

Hate it! I can't imagine anyone walking down the street wearing this and looking great. Might be able to get away with it a resort but yikes, 70s curtains!

It's like wearing a tablecloth left around from the 50s. I'd rather wear the crochet bedspread!

I think the print is very pretty however I would not want to wear it. It's too big, it has lemons on her breasts and the white space is wider across here stomach. Great tablecloth though.

maybe on short shorts- otherwise, not a fan.

It works better on some designs more than on others. Personally I liked it on the silky dress with the slits, but am not too fond of it on the outfits in your photos.

Very wearable on a warm Sicilian night strolling down a boulevard. But apart from those rare occassions.....nah.

Blogger Petey said ... (8:41 AM) : 

I love it, but as a single piece, not a total ensemble. ADR was right (with her giant cherry and watermelon wedge hats)-- fruit prints are huge for Spring...the new floral. Between Prada's bananas and Stella's citrus, I'm hungry for some ambrosia fruit salad!

 

Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (8:42 AM) : 

Some designers are producing 'ugly' designs on purpose and are testing us 'normal' people if we are gonna buy it or not. If we buy the ugly design...it's only because of the name of the designer. Why buy a 800 dollar ugly piece designed by a big name designer, when you can go for an extremely beautiful and 'one-of-a-kind' clothingpiece of 1 dollar at the local thrift store?

Maybe it would have worked as a bold detail on a very finely cut jacket. But these clothes are all square and mishapen, they look like; "Oh, I'm gonna make a dress from this kitchen curtain, how difficult can it be?"

The clothes are cut in a frankly unflattering way despite the print; and, while the print itself is not in my personal taste I love the hyper realness. Stella is onto something!

I hate it... And does the first model have a right arm?? Doesn't look like it in the photo!

 

Anonymous Sophie said ... (9:00 AM) : 

Erm... this looks exactly like those wax tablecloths everyone's mom had in like 1980. I appreciate though that runway is not always for practical use, so I do like the summery motif.

 

Blogger Giulia said ... (9:01 AM) : 

Reminds me the Cavalli print of some summer ago.

 

Anonymous meg said ... (9:02 AM) : 

I think the problem is that it isn't 50s tablecloth/grandma's curtains ENOUGH. Like anonymous (8:26) said, it looks more like a late 80s/early 90s kitchen print--and there's nothing appealing about that.

 

Blogger Chaos said ... (9:03 AM) : 

Not a fan of this one...it sure does look like a tablecloth.

For god's sake, I love Stella. she's a genius (once again). Those prits remind me childhood, but I don't know why. It's fresh, anyway (like fresh fruits,haha), but I must admit it's kind of :Love it or hate it, nothing neutral

 

Blogger sherene said ... (9:19 AM) : 

The second picture looks much better than the first... I guess the summery/fruity look works better on a short dress!

 

Blogger Carolann DeMatos said ... (9:21 AM) : 

I like this print ... for say a placemat or kitchen wallpaper ... but it seems so loud for a dress. To me at least.

It was a great fresh print to in the mix of so many neutrals (which I love) and a lot of other trends that were shown this season ; )

it looks very Italian, in the sense of an Italian tablecloth. I would never wear that- nor use it when making a collection.

Hate it. For all the reasons already mentioned below. Maybe if it had been on a more form fitting garment it might not have been as bad, but still...awful.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:28 AM) : 

Stella McCartney has always been fond of things natural. Maybe, this is one of those fashion statements that say, "You are what you eat" or "Wear what you eat." We appreciate that you're on an all-fruit diet regimen, McCartney, but we really don't need to see that on your clothes.

yes, it looks like a tablecloth, but somehow i still like it. My only complaint is the white stitching. It could have been so much better with an accent colour!

Anonymous Genevieve said ... (9:29 AM) : 

Admittedly, at first glance I hated it. As if it was so close to being exactly right, just off kilter enough, but not too kooky, but somehow I thought it had missed the mark.

At second glance, I'm warming up to it. I'm not deluding myself into thinking that it will become a style icon, but it is a fun print, that doesn't take itself too seriously.

I'm getting a bit tired of all these strong prints. There was a time when they were considered plain kitsch, then they became kinda cool, but for me they are becoming too much. Sorry Stella.

 

Anonymous Bridget said ... (11:04 AM) : 

If one looks at the way the white of the pattern creates an hour glass shape (squint if you have to get beyond the fruit!) and then observe how the designer has used that reality to work with the human body form in creating these fashions, then you might see how the "white effect" reflects and enhances the figure in the pant suit outfit and reverses it in the dress in a very effective way.

Don't care that it's not flattering to the model (or, probably, to anyone). Fashion often is sculpture, for me, the model the vehicle for the clothes.

My husband has a passion for extreme aloha shirts. I like "ugly pants". But you can TELL when someone is serious about a funny look and that just doesn't work. This look is funny. It's a FRUIT PRINT for pete's sake. Big hair, big sunglasses, big smile and this print? Then it's a yes.

OpenID fashionslap said ... (12:56 PM) : 

I don't mind the print. It's fresh and daring and so unlike other prints of recent, but I can see where some might not like it since it looks like a print of my grandmothers skirt, but in fashion what once was old becomes new again.
The thing I don't like it the cuts of the pieces. They are bulky and the model looks like she is drowning. Something more fitted is more suited, which is what I think when I think Stella anyway.

 

Blogger Christine Glenna said ... (12:58 PM) : 

at first I hated it, but that hate was mostly directed to the placement of the print. Being on either side of her, it leaves some odd negative space in the middle. I don't like the colors, either.

However, I rather like the almost-photo realistic print and in smaller doses and slightly more muted colors (like a lot of the rest of her collection) I can see this style really catching on.

Maybe not fruit, though.

this print might be cute on a bikini or shorts, but not in such a large amount - it totally takes away from looking at the person and is all about the hypnotic citrus.

Love the print, dislike the silhouettes. I would love to have this in a little flowy summer dress, fitted blazer, tight sweater, etc. instead.

I won't buy this at all !
Prada's bananas were more subtle, modern and quirky.

Still got a hand-painted silk cravat, should it be worn now?

 

Anonymous Floydikins said ... (2:31 PM) : 

Pretty to look at. Would hate to wear it though.

I don't think we all need to be so polarized: I like it for all the reasons people here seem to hate it (resembling grandma's tablecloth, etc.). I think that's Stella McCartney's whole point.

I'm definitely leaning towards 'hate it'. But it got people talking so kudos for that!

 

Blogger LatteLisa said ... (2:41 PM) : 

love Stella, hate the print

Hate the print, I would never wear that. It's a shame because otherwise I love the designs.

 

Blogger W. said ... (2:58 PM) : 

definitely, love it!

Love it...for vacation on the tropical islands

I think that it's cute, cheerful and I like it a lot!

This isn't that original, doesn't anyone remember lemon and orange fruits print on white silk prints that were round in the mid 90's that looked just like these. I know I was bought a silk top with very similar prints. I think it was an Italain designer that was copied on the UK high street by topshop and C&A (when it used to be in the UK).

ps...Is it me or does the second model look like she is ill?

I hate to say it's terrible because I LOVE Stella McCartney but it's terrible, it's great in concept but terrible execution I think.

just bad, but its not a surprising design from her. She's been pushing out whimsy, lazy, formulaic designs with horrible prints for years now. I've always thought her designs look like something you'd find in a generic suburban teenage girl's scrap book, and not that I'd have anything against that as an aesthetic in itself. I think what I'm getting at is when you are placing yourself on a stage shared with such an incredible lineage of diverse and radical approaches to innovation, craft and style; to see something designs like this in the same context just makes me a little sad.
Ever since she started butchering George Stubbs' paintings and slapping them around like a bad gimmick back in the day at Chloe I've been waiting for her to dumbfound me with something even half good. Unfortunately it seems that she's just not capable, I know this kind of criticism isn't new, but I can see certainly understand the suggestion that the progression of her fashion career has had very little to do with tallent as a designer.

If I was a table I would be happy to wear it. It resembles the table cloth my grandmother uses in the summer.

It's cute but I would not wear it.

wow it has certainly polarised the comments! I love it!

You could get away with top or bottom, but not both together. It really is too tablecloth-y with a whole outfit. And you'd have to wear it with something simple, like jeans or plain pants, to pull it off.

 

Anonymous Rose said ... (4:23 PM) : 

Love the print !!!!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:35 PM) : 

This is a common problem for me -- I fall for the material but it doesn't flatter me.

In the photo with the two-piece outfit, it just looks clunky and unflattering. In the photo with short dress, it works better.

Once again, I love the printed pattern, but I think it's too overpowering for clothing. It reminds me of a mid60s Hawaiian print.
