Obsessed With Stella McCartney Fall 2014

I'm not sure why, but in all of my extended browsing of the Fall 2014 collections on, I never really gave much thought to Stella McCartney.  I scanned it once and never revisited - my routine for collections that aren't season-after-season favorites - even though Stella consistently ranks somewhere in my top ten.  The other day, though, I just so happened to click on one of those tailored-to-you based on crap you've looked at in the past banner ads for Nordstrom, where I eventually clicked my way to the fall Stella pre-orders.  For some reason, the collection was so much more appealing in a retail format, and I instantly became enamored of a matching mélange knit sweater and skirt, a look that I have been obsessing over since sourcing material for this post.  It's like a light bulb went off and all of a sudden, I couldn't get enough of the collection - the insane knits, the sexy minimalist fringe dresses, and THE starry flatform oxfords.  My favorite look from the show is Look 21 - a matching wool sweater and trouser combo in emerald and black.  This is the silhouette I am most craving for fall - a two-piece knit paired with statement accessories, including a timeless (with a twist) top handle.

MØ 'Waste of Time'

High Summer '14 Look

Mykita 'Roald' lite tea shade sunglasses in Copper/Black @ SSENSE
Kimberly McDonald uvaronite garnet and black diamond triangle earrings @ FarFetch
Burberry Prorsum dark green fur and lambskin cropped caban @ SSENSE
J.W. Anderson classic oxford shirt dress @ Net-a-porter
Altuzarra 'Djinn' plaid pencil skirt @ MyTheresa
Ashish pink stripe sequin tote @ ASOS
Marni flannel crisscross flat slide sandal @ Neiman Marcus

With the heat index soaring well above the 100's and the humidity at a daily average of 60%, I find myself daydreaming of fall - knits, pants, sleeves.  This look is a mix of pieces that are available right now (some pre-order) and that in other climates could be considered summer-wear, but here, unfortunately, would be no match for even the most powerful A/C.  Here's looking to fall - and that gorgeous green Burberry Prorsum cropped caban.

Finally seeing this shoot in motion only further underscores the indelible coolness that is Nicolas Ghesquière.  Total love.
