Stella McCartney got her start at Chloé, but since 2001, she’s been creating stunning designs under her own label and following an ethical trajectory unique among larger designers. McCartney is a lifelong vegetarian, so unlike other highly visible tastemakers, her pieces are always leather-free and animal friendly. If you’re a high-class vegan, she’s the go-to name for cruelty-free creations.
Besides being PETA-approved, McCartney is also known for her unique cuts and instantly recognizable bags. Those telltale chain accents make her Fallabella bag series stand out from the crowd, and her trim, ladylike silhouettes are perfect for red carpets and cocktail parties alike. If you were kitting someone out in Ms. McCartney’s wares, how would you put together their outfit?
