Stella McCartney’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection has really grown on me. When it first came down the runway in Paris, last October, I wasn’t immediately in love with it, but as the months have gone by it’s quickly become one of my favourite Spring collections. How did Stella do that? A lot of it is down to that paisley print, which Stella wore herself at the GB Olympic kit reveal a few weeks ago. It’s also become a firm celebrity favourite – spotted on everyone from Rosie to Gwyneth – who have shown just how flattering and effortlessly cool the designs are.
I’ve got my eyes on the paisley shorts, but obviously the real dream is the hourglass-effect stretch-jersey dress which gives you the ultimate curvaceous body. It’s seriously flattering.
