„Make love not leather” – said the designer about her Fall 2020 runway, where guests were greeted by a bunch of ‘animals’.
As an outspoken vegan and a leader in the eco-friendly fashion space, Stella McCartneyhas made very clear that she loves animals. But she’s taking things to the next level now. The digital invite to her Fall 2020 runway included a gif of animals with the slogan
“Make love not leather.”
On the show guests were greeted by people in animal costumes (the kind a sports team mascot might wear). There was a squirrel, an alligator, a pony, a cow and other fuzzy creatures — which then popped up again on the runway, reinterpreted in graphic yet simple shapes on the pieced featured in the collection.
This year McCartney worked with strong shapes in neutral tones of khakis and grays, and a suite of silky dresses with sparkling embellishment; not something one usually expects from the designer, but a fancy touch which will surely delight the celebrity crew who choose her for their red-carpet moments.
Delightfully, the animals took a turn on the runway as well, joining the models for the finale walk and in some cases, completely stealing the spotlight by dancing along with the music.
