Stella McCartney Hates the Word ‘Resort’

By

New York fashion director Harriet Mays Powell caught up with Stella McCartney at her resort 2011 presentation last night. Sorry, spring presentation. “How unsexy is that word? Does anyone even use the word resort?" the designer asked. "Even people that have resorts. We call it spring.” Which is fitting, since the season inspired the collection (which we'll be posting in full soon). “It’s hopeful and uplifting. Trying to keep the same language we had in the show with all the flowers and all the whites, just to make it really pure and sharp.” See the looks, and watch Stella's models dance and play chess, in the video.
