Stella McCartney To Make Vegan Menswear, Hopefully Not Including Wool
Lookout vegan men of the world – Stella McCartney is launching a vegan menswear line later this year. Now, both genders can spend a pretty penny on cotton silk.
Stella has spent the last 15 years making “ethically conscious” women’s fashion, avoiding leather, feathers, and fur products in her designs. A vegetarian since childhood, a lifestyle choice championed by her famous father Paul and mum Linda, she has been met some scrutiny for her continued use of wool (something we know to be just as cruel). We would be a lot more excited about promoting this line if she abandoned the absurd notion of “ethical wool,” and removed it from her catalogues altogether.
WWD magazine says, “Her fortes — slouchy tailoring, comfortable knits and effortless separates — could translate easily into men’s wear, which has become increasingly casual.”
The designer tested the waters with menswear back in 2010 when she partnered with Adidas. The launch of male vegan duds is just one move in a suspected growing empire that’s already seen an expansion in to children’s clothing.
