Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney ruled the runway yesterday with understated elegance and minimalist femininity.


Stella McCartney‘s spring collection showcased a muted palette with soft, flowing dresses and silk jumpsuits.


Maya’s outfit has a clean graphic palette and slim silhouette. Sleek lines and a sleeveless blazer vest are staples of cool city-girl style, but I love her text tee, too. It softens the look a bit, and feels youthful and fun. Her simple oxfords and classic wide-brim hat are great additions to this modern, menswear-inspired ensemble.

Nothing says Burberry like a classic trench coat, and these blonde beauties are perfectly paired. The base of their looks may be the same, but they each have clear individual style. Leather leggings and Valentino heels are urban and edgy, while lace-up stilettos and modern cat-eye sunglasses have subtle sex appeal. Love the look, ladies!

Last Thursday, more than 550 fashion lovers from all over the country converged in a cavernous cruise-ship terminal on the outskirts of Seattle to join us in celebrating our 28th annual Designer Preview.

Nordstrom friends like Vogue Market Editor Cynthia Smith, Seattle Art Museum president Jaennae’ Dinius, rising musician Hollis and our Director of Creative Projects Olivia Kim—among countless other notables—mingled during an evening complete with a cocktail reception, an incredible runway show and shopping fall ’14 collections. Read more to see some of our favorite highlights from this stylish soiree.


Today we’re celebrating the online arrival of Stella McCartney‘s pre-fall ready-to-wear collection. For autumn ’14, the British designer examines concepts of self-expression through exaggerated textures. Sustainability is the cornerstone of McCartney’s brand and is found in the form of organic fabrics and biodegradable rubber soles.


Exaggerated zippers, fringed details, shibori prints, chunky knits and razor-sharp tailoring define the look for fall ’14 at Stella McCartney, who held her show at the opulent Palais Garnier opera house. The runway styles of the collection moved models Cara Delevingne and Joan Smalls to close the show with some energized dance moves. We can all join in on the excitement as we count down to the launch of the British designer’s ready-to-wear line on this May!

We just had to bring Miss Shea Marie (Peace Love Shea) back for another round on The Thread. Shea has such a great eye for trends. I love how she’s mixed graphic print and contrast with a pastel pink coat. It’s an unexpected combination, but the modern cut of her coat works with the slim lines of her printed set. Her platform Céline loafers are one of my top shoes of the season, so I’m sold on this look!

“I believe it’s an everyday part of everybody’s life,” says McCartney. “Jeans are a timeless classic with a million opportunities to inject freshness and attitude. There are a lot of eco possibilities as well with denim, which I find exciting.”


Last week, to honor the launch of Stella McCartney apparel at selected stores, we hosted a luncheon highlighting pieces from the British designer’s Fall 2013 and Resort 2014 collections. We’re head over heels for the quirky prints and embellishments, sharp tailoring and classic silhouettes that are quintessentially McCartney. Stay tuned for our coverage on McCartney’s Spring 2014 collection taking place in Paris on Monday September 30.

Menswear-Inspired: The fall collection is all about masculine silhouettes with an elegant sensibility—we’re crazy for the chunky knits and printed separates.

Step Into Fall: These platform booties with a tortoiseshell heel are a wardrobe essential.

Two of Hearts: This adorable short-sleeve dress embellished with hearts is the perfect combination of bold and feminine.

Crowd Pleaser: The beaded appliqué lips and matchsticks on these Resort 2014 pieces pay a playful homage to the surrealist movement.

Something was very apparent at Stella McCartney‘s fall ’13 show: The women are clearly wearing the pants this fall. Masculine silhouettes and mannish details pervaded the English designer’s collection for the upcoming season.

Known for her ability to mix androgynous menswear shapes with a unique feminine sensibility, McCartney put her spin on the tomboy trend via pinstriped tailoring, elongated skirts, felted baseball caps, and boxy tartan coats—staying true to her minimalist aesthetic.
