Boost your eco-creds wearing pre-owned Stella McCartney: the Queen of sustainable fashion design.
Few designers have bridged the gap between luxury and sustainable fashion the way Stella McCartney has, meaning even if you buy brand-new from her collection, more attention has been paid to the sustainability elements of the design and the production process than you would find from other luxury fashion houses. But does that mean you shouldn't look for a great bargain in the pre-owned market? No way.
Stella has been an anti-fur, anti-leather activist for years, but her designs are no less stylish without these materials. Let's take a look at some of the more iconic pieces from Stella over the years.
Stella introduced the Falabella bag in her AW10 collection and it has been a staple ever since. Made of 100% vegan materials, it is easily identified by the chain around its edges. The bag became an instant hit with celebrities thanks to its rock n roll vibe and now comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. We especially love this vibrant blue heart shaped number.
Perhaps you've seen the ridged sole on these shoes without knowing who it was - it's Stella. A shoe that is not quite a sneaker, loafer or a platform, but a combination of all three, gives height and warrants attention to anyone who wears it.
Stella has put out some incredibly sleek blazers over the years. We adore this one for its stand out colour and subtle pattern. Find your perfect Stella blazer pre owned on Eskadi by clicking the image below.
Stella has undoubtedly changed the way British fashion appears (and is made) today. Her commitment to sustainability and her creative use of new materials makes her designs a joy to wear.
