Who knew HM Queen Elizabeth II would become one of the biggest fashion inspiration for the season? The trend of British heritage with all its tailored, checked equestrian style is here for a while, but the quilted utilitarian coat paired with tweed pants and a silk headscarf is kind of new. The resemblance is uncanny, isn’t it?
But being proud or respectful to the British heritage is not the end of the story, of course. It’s beautiful and nostalgic for sure but wouldn’t be so interesting for our eyes without the modern, almost flirty touch or the extravagantly sharp tailoring, which is Stella’s own twisty addition to the culture.
Then I haven’t mentioned the beautiful silk dress with the print of George Stubbs painting, the Horse frightened by a Lion which makes the whole collection even more interesting and artsy. And there is the show’s finale when models were smiling and dancing to the George Michael’s Faith. The whole collection was a big compliment to the history, art and outstanding personalities which she is from and which she can be really proud of.
I like it, do you?
