The goal for this collection was understated seduction and while we can’t speak to the second part of that idea (although the array of slip dresses would seem to back it up), we can definitely see the first part; the understatement. This feels like a very grown up, toned down Stella. The shapes are fluid but simple, the colors are almost somber, and the designs are (mostly) scaled back and away from her tendency toward tricky or overdone designs. It works for us; mainly because a collection like this could come off almost depressing, but to our eyes, it just looks calmly confident in its directness.
