Denim has always been a staple of the Stella McCartney collections and has been featured on the runway in previous seasons. For Spring 2014, the range is expanded into an offering of up to 10 styles in 20 washes including prints and colors that complement the designer’s ready-to-wear collection.
The increase in styles this season focuses on jeans and shorts in either skinny leg, wide leg or boyfriend fit with a low, high or mid-rise. Washes including over dyed, faded and degrade come in classic shades of indigo, white, grey and black; while a fresh spring palette consists of rose, lipstick and chamomile. Prints are playful in a black and white heart print and subtle in all black subtle leopard.
The range features a new denim technology including high recovery fabric that reduces stretching due to wear while also shaping the body. Continuing the designer’s commitment to sustainability, 8 styles are 100% organic cotton, farmed using a water efficient process that does not involve harmful chemicals, restores and maintains soil health.
Additionally no sand blasting has been used, a technique commonly used in denim which is harmful to workers due to the high exposure toxic silica in the air. All the denim styles are 100% made in Italy.
The denim range will ship 3 times a year and is available to retailers at market starting tomorrow for a November delivery with a retail price range from $350 to $595.

Harieth Paul channels true 1970?s cool in this fashion editorial for the July 2011 pages of Elle Canada. Shot by Richard Bernardin the Tanzanian beauty is definitely giving us a classic foxy vibe in bold floral print separates, and some of the summer seasons hottest denim looks. We’re pretty much in love with the amazing shredded denim overalls but we have to admit our favorite look is definitely the Stella McCartney oversized denim tunic styled with those killer lace -up thigh-high boots. Hands down our favorite take on the 70s trend to date!

If you need the latest in fashion and can’t wait until it hits the stores, you’re in luck. Moda Operandi has arrived. The brainchild of Aslaug Magnusdottir and Lauren Santo Domingo, Moda Operandi is the first online luxury fashion retailer to allow members to pre-order tomorrow’s styles today through a flash trunkshow. We had the opportunity to speak with Co-Founder and style authority, Lauren Santo Domingo (a Vogue Contributing editor to say the least of her fashion expertise), to discuss her new business venture and gain you exclusive membership access to Moda Operandi!
Denim Therapy: Lets start from the beginning. What inspired you to get this Website off the ground? How exactly does it work?
Lauren Santo Domingo: The website has been a long time coming. We have been working on it for over a year and a half and launched during New York fashion week. My business partner and I had long wanted to go into business together but the world did not need another personal style or street style blog. Moda Operandi offers access to designer showrooms and allows members to shop like an editor; A privilege that I am lucky to have had.
DT: Tell us some designers that you carry and about the denim they offer?
LSD: We are gearing up for London fashion week right now… We have a great group of Brits like Erdem, Peter Pilotto, Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab. These collections showed to great reviews and hey are sometimes hard to come by. So our flash trunk shows are quite possibly the only place to secure these looks.
DT: What are some of your favorite denim brands? And where do you shop for them?
LSD: I love Stella McCartney for high waisted and Balenciaga for skinny jeans. Derek Lam did a fabulous high waisted jean for Spring, hat I am lusting after right now.

Timeless and classic beauty Constance Jablonski graces the pages of Spanish Harper’s Bazaar April 2011 looking ever-so gorgeous. She’s featured in a perfectly styled editorial wearing the latest in spring denim by Stella McCartney, Christian Dior, Mango and D&G. We are really loving everything from the denim apron and the boxy denim dress to the paper bag waist jeans. With it’s overall understated neutral allure and subtle sex appeal that keeps it chic, we can’t help but to wonder one thing: is denim the new black? We’ll leave that for you to ponder about! Meanwhile, be sure to infuse your spring wardrobe with a dose of spring denim.

Stella McCartney has done it again (and again)! As she thrilled us with her children’s clothing for the Gap, she has just launched her very own kids collection.
The line which caters for 0-12 year olds both boys and girls, features pea coats, stripey cashmere-blend knits, yellow wellies and lots and lots of denim. Each piece in the collection includes styles that have been adapted and shrunken from McCartney’s main line. Additionally, they are all named after children’s first names. There’s the James cardigan, Lara tee, and Nina skinny jeans for example.
As you’d expect and as we saw at Gap, Stella’s pricing runs above your average budget kidswear. Most of us budget-conscious moms will only purchase these clothes for a few good basics, special occasions, or when they’re on sale. However, most of the mix and match pieces are unisex so those of you with a few multi gender kids are in luck. Then again it’s always fun to ask aunts, uncles, or grandparents to send your little one a gift- HINT, HINT.
Don’t you just wish you can fit into one of these darling outfits?
