It’s the collaboration we never knew we wanted, but now categorically need: Stella McCartney x The Beatles.
Roll up fashion and music fans alike, Stella McCartney has drawn inspiration for her latest collection named “All Together Now” from the film “Yellow Submarine”. The fantasy film directed by George Dunning and starring animations of George Harrison, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and, of course, Paul McCartney on a magical mystery tour celebrated its fiftieth anniversary last year with a digitally remastered update. It was after watching the aforementioned cartoon that McCartney decided to design the psychedelic pieces which have been applied to women, men and children’s apparel.
The result? A collection as iconic and off beat as the pioneering cartoon. A rainbow hue (faux) fur coat sees the brightly coloured pelts outline the silhouettes of the fab-four, with the playful aesthetic spreading to a woollen jumper emblazoned with the infamous “All You Need Is Love” lyrics. Looking for something more appropriate to the sun being up and the sky being blue (…it’s beautiful and so are you)? We’ve earmarked the impossibly jazzy Rosebery midi dress, which features a “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” inspired print as our go-to summer evening staple.
The collection, which debuted as a custom two piece worn by singer Billie Eilish on the Pyramid Stage of Glastonbury, was more than just a note on fashion, with Stella expanding on the films momentous inspiration on the collection:“I hadn’t seen it since I was young, and honestly it blew my mind. It affected me in a way I just wasn’t expecting. Especially this idea of connecting people and bringing people together”.
So what collaboration’s next for this multi-talented, slightly bonkers but absolutely fabulous family? Perhaps some Stella McCartney packaged vegan sausages are in the pipeline? It’s the McCartney’s world – we’re just living in it. All together now! “We all live in a yellow…”
