Mushrooms are the future

Stella McCartney makes a return to the runway with a show rooted in the powerful notion that mushrooms are the future of fashion. Seeing fungi’s transformative and transcendental qualities in the Fantastic Fungi documentary inspired Stella’s visions for the presentation, beginning the show with narrations by mycologist Paul Stamets and otherworldly synthesiser music created from mushrooms. The collection’s palette pulls heavily from nature’s own vibrancy, blending energetic brightness with earthiness. Accessories include vegan Frayme bags, energised by new styles with a hand strap and contrast-colour chains and woven Alter Mat saddle bags.
