Stella McCartney: Handcrafted Luxury

Despite a slew of shapeless black tents, Stella McCartney did manage to stun me with some select looks. The handcrafted, one-of-a-kind quality of these pieces feels less commercial than many other collections', and one can hardly believe that these items were not inherited from a fashionable great-great grandmother in Paris (or London). It is precisely this quality that I search for in clothes, and the commonplace has become something I eschew with high disdain (I can barely stand to look at the Gap). Clothes need to be as individual as you are.

Additional Looks:

1. Are you sure you didn't get this from a museum vault?

2. A strong statement coat that looks like fashionable armor against a jaded society:

3. Perhaps your great-great grandmother really did make a skirt. You wear it as a dress, and embrace crochet.
