Stella McCartney For Target

Photos from

If you have ever considered taking a trip Down Under now is the perfect time… Stella McCartney’s second collection for Target has been announced!  

While Stella McCartney has just shown her 2011 Spring / Summer Collection in Paris; it was also revealed her second collection for Target (Australia) would be hitting selected stores on October 29th!

The 42 piece Spring / Summer collection incorporates an impressive array of chic, versatile separates. Jeans, trousers, skirts, dresses, blouses and t-shirts are all well represented in McCartney’s smart, chic signature style. A true reflection of McCartney’s design aesthetic, the collection has a strong focus on her sharp tailoring and well-cut silhouettes. Lace and sequins are also used with great success for polished, sexy feminine separates.

McCartney’s last collaboration with Target in 2007 sold out within a couple of days. And with prices ranging from just $20 to $199 (both in Australian Dollars), this collection looks set to fly off shelves even faster! It will also be available up to size 16. Target unveiled the collection at the Altona mansion harbour-side at Point Piper. Instead of a catwalk, models moved and interacted around different displays – from taking high tea to lounging in deck chairs.

My Favourite 5 looks:

1. Tulip Dress with Tie in Magenta
This dress is my absolute favourite! Love it! The sleeve length, neckline and nipped-in waist work perfectly for a powerful, sexy look. And the magenta colour is divine! (pictured above in Ivory)

2. White Lace Tee and Ivory Tulip Skirt
The lace tee and tulip skirt are so pretty together. Love the tulip shape combined with the delicate lace.

3. Collarless Jacket, Lace Tee & Tight Lace Trouser
Signature Stella style – the ivory jacket, black lace tee and cigarette trouser equals seriously chic.

4. Lace Dress in French Blue
With a beautiful neckline and sleeves, this lace dress is lovely in French blue.

5. French Blue Shirt with Tie and Wide Leg Trouser
A fantastic pair of trousers are an essential part of every woman’s wardrobe. When combined with a dress shirt means effortless chic.

Uptown Twirl’s thoughts on the collection:

Stella McCartney’s aesthetic is so distinct, sexy and feminine; so it had to be incredibly difficult to capture the essence of her design philosophy in an affordable capsule range. However, this has been done pretty successfully. The sleek blazers, skinny jeans and tulip skirts create beautiful shapes on the body and will make the perfect addition to any Spring / Summer wardrobe.

P.S. Am very sad I will be unable to fight the crowds to get my hands on some of these stunning looks! Especially the Magenta tulip dress with tie.

P.P.S. And well done to Stella McCartney for creating such beautiful pieces for such reasonable prices! Stella McCartney = talented genius!

P.P.P.S. Is it unreasonable to fly 24hours for the Magenta tulip dress with tie? Is it really….xx
