Pushing boundaries in women’s sportswear is what British designer Stella McCartney does best. And her latest collection for Fall/Winter 2019 continues in this vein, reducing its impact on the environment without compromising on performance. Baroque Access finds out all the details
Stella McCartney’s versatile sportswear collection for women for the coming cooler season uses cutting edge fabrics that are eco-friendly to reduce their impact on the planet. In the Fall/Winter 2019 collection, graphic prints and bold mesh structures contrast with Stella’s favourite soft, blush color palette and earth tones.
The production methods and materials used to create the garments for Stella’s FW19 collection include recycled polyester made with Parley Ocean Plastic TM as well as regenerated ECONYLTM yarn. In addition, the technologies used to create the garments for this innovative collection are known to withstand both the intensity of working out and harsh climate conditions.
This new collection balances these innovative technologies with the style and performance that Stella McCartney is famous for, and includes her iconic design skills. Highlights for the season include the new Warpknit Long Sleeve, a high-performance knitted garment that feels like a second skin and features open holes to allow athletes to stay cool during intense workouts. Both the Light Jacket and Run M20 Short complement the top for a complete versatile training look; they are created using lightweight, recycled polyester to bring ultimate comfort to any training routine.
According to Stella, “Performance and style are at the heart of every piece adidas by Stella McCartney creates, but we believe that this shouldn’t come at a cost to the planet. Our focus for this collection was to incorporate fabrics that help us get one step closer to our future goal of high-performing, sustainable performance wear.”
