Stella McCartney unveils Patagonia wool made Autumn14 line

Jan '14
Famous English fashion designer Stella McCartney has recently introduced her much-anticipated Autumn-2014 collection, made from 100 percent sustainable wool, solely produced in Patagonia, a region spread across Argentina and Chile.
 
The line is created in partnership with the US-based charitable environmental organization Nature Conservancy and the sustainable wool production-promoting independent South American company Ovis XXI.
 
Softening the signature black-and-white edgy punk styles, the 42-year-old’s collection is adorned with interesting graphic patterns drawn by the London-based artist Gary Hume.
 
Replete with exaggerated patterns, textures and silhouettes, the range is enhanced with jacquard motifs, thread work embroidery, zip details and geometric intarsia designs. 
 
The line includes a distorted polka dot duchess silk asymmetric dress, a trench coat, a pair of straight leg organic denims, sweaters and an oversize mohair blanket coat with a fringed selvedge. 
 
Strongly identified with the YBA artists who came to prominence in the early 1990s, Gary Hume is known for figurative and abstract paintings on aluminium panels, which often feature startling color combinations. 
 
An OBE holder, McCartney is the daughter of former Beatles member Sir Paul McCartney and American photographer and animal rights activist Linda McCartney.
 
Currently operating in Uruguay, Argentina and Chile, Ovis XXI administrates a network that integrates farmers, technicians, studs and industries related to sheep production. The company has developed a quality assurance and branding system to identify products that originate from properties that apply sustainable practices in terms of flock improvement, advanced wool classing and sustainable production.
 
Founded in 1952, The Nature Conservancy is devoted to the task of conserving the lands and waters on which all life depends.
