The British invasion is upon us once again with this gem of a collection — designer Stella McCartney has joined forces with The Beatles, one of the most legendary bands in the world, for a genderless fashion collection that celebrates pop culture at its best. All you need is love… and a vintage-inspired t-shirt it seems.
Timed to complement the launch of Peter Jackson’s The Beatles: Get Back documentary on Disney+, the 12-piece capsule debuted over the weekend at NET-A-PORTER, offering plenty of graphic prints and psychedelic colours inspired by some of The Beatles’ most iconic albums.
A particularly vibrant t-shirt sports Dutch design collective The Fool’s psychedelic art on the front and a Beatles record cover at the back, while tie-dye is seen on a t-shirt and hoodie. Then, a pink-rimmed sweater pays tribute to the psychedelic landscape painting The Beatles originally commissioned for their Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover, while another varsity-style bomber sees the album’s badge displayed on glossy satin.
In a more subtle twist, a black-and-white coat and track pants are intarsia-knitted with the Fab Four’s faces, along with ‘Get Back’ — which references both the 1969 single and original working title of Let It Be. There are obviously lots of little homages to the band peppered throughout the collection, for you to discover, which makes for a most sincere collaboration.
