Recycling, carrying groceries in cute totes, and biking around town are all chic ways to lend Mother Nature a hand. But this week, eco-conscious designer Stella McCartney took going green to a new level, showing an entire capsule collection of sustainable dresses at London Fashion Week.

Dubbed the “Green Carpet Collection,” the line mixes abstract water-based ink prints with seventies-inspired wood-heeled shoes. And the clothes weren’t the only green designs at the launch – her presentation at the Royal Institution of Great Britain used reclaimed film props, including shrubbery from the set of Les Misérables.

If this is the direction eco-friendly fashion is headed, then I’ll definitely tip my hat to Stella, known for her company-wide commitment to sustainable materials, as its very chic pioneer.

If you’re anything like me, you gravitate toward neutrals. But there’s no better time than now to inject a little color into your wardrobe. After all, your glowing summer skin is primed to showcase this season’s best brights.

Most Coveted 6-16

  1. Ella Moss Maxi Dress. Side slits and lightweight crepe make this crimson number a breezy no-brainer.
  2. Marc by Marc Jacobs “Rock” Watch. Balance bold prints and colors with simple metallic accessories like this rose-gold boyfriend watch.
  3. Stella McCartney “Falabella” Clutch. Soft florals and an edgy chain-link trim play up the most vivid of hues.
  4. Sophia Webster “Riko” Sandal. Don’t be afraid to introduce even more color. These lace-up heels stand out in all the right ways.

 
Check out these picks and more on Rue La La this week.

Stella McCartney

Most designers take a low-key approach to the Resort season by presenting their collection in a showroom setting to an intimate, by-appointment-only group of editors and buyers. Not so for Stella McCartney, who always hosts a big party to debut her Resort offerings. And this year was no different.

Stella & co. took over St. Luke’s in the Field in New York’s West Village last week to host a seriously fun beer garden party.

Inside, leggy young models wearing Stella McCartney Resort looks mingled with a crowd that included Bono, Estelle, Liv Tyler, and Naomi Watts, along with editors from every major fashion mag and department store in town.
