No introductions are needed for Stella McCartney, neither for her increasingly successful season-by-season career, nor for her famous background. But Interview magazine hosted a lengthy and retrospective talk with the designer by Tim Blanks, about her up-bringing, her memories and her course in the fashion industry and was accompanied by a very appropriate-to-the-interview editorial of McCartney’s Spring/Summer 2012 dresses (of the most photoshooted items of the season). Craig McDean went with a black-n-white approach, elevating Stella’s designs to a part of a fantasy, focusing on bringing out emotion. Black-n-white is always the best way to do so, as the sporty dresses with the mixed micro-prints and embossed paisleys now are meant to attach a meta-modern intensity, framing a nostalgic sensuality.
