(PARIS) Nobody makes suiting look as sexy as Stella McCartney, and the designer wisely returned to her roots for Fall with a collection full of well-executed building blocks. Hip-length single-button tuxedo jackets, plain-front wool overcoats and throw-on silk blouses are the stuff of investment next season. But as always, Stella has her statements, like those sassy alterna-fur jackets made of wool instead of shearling. The touches of humor make her more serious clothes all the more compelling--this season, that means slip dresses. Beautifully constructed and trimmed with eyelash lace, this understated way of dressing up feels completely right. All in all, McCartney offers a feel-good experience unlike any other in fashion.
