“THE collection is very much a celebration of summer, of the Stella woman,”Stella McCartney told us after her show this morning – and, while it’s not new to see her make a statement about female empowerment, today’s show felt like an energetic ode to femininity, more romantic than we’re used to from her, but still modern. Opened by Miranda Kerr and boasting a fabulous line-up including Cara Delevingne and Joan Smalls, it was gloriously light, with a finale of two-tone lingerie lace dresses underlining the point.

“I wanted to take a really honest approach,” said Stella.  “We’ve redefined the silhouette to take on a slightly more slim-line shape and we have these subtle windows onto the body because I wanted to use fabric in a way that really speaks about the woman wearing it – rather than it wearing her, I want it to work for her.”

It was confident and sassy too – a lighter approach doesn’t mean she’s discarded her signature boy-meets-girl aesthetic: fluid tunic dresses fell to the hip where sheer lower skirts were tacked on loosely to show a flash of thigh between; cream silk trouser suits had all the Stella sex appeal and fitted bomber jackets zipped to the neck in crocodile printed chiffon or shiny jacquard with matching high-waisted trousers beneath.
