British fashion designer Stella McCartney recently launched her first menswear collection. The collection was unveiled at the very famous Abbey Road recording studio in London. Instead of a fashion show at menswear fashion week, McCartney unveiled her collection at a fabulous independent event.


The popularity of this recording studio can be credited to Stella McCartney’s father Paul McCartney and his fellow Beatles members. The studio got famous when the Beatles named their album after Abbey Road in 1969. The album reference was used during the fashion show by parading models over the white stripes as was shown in the album cover in 1969.

Paul McCartney was also the source of inspiration behind the collection along with Stella McCartney’s husband and other impactful artists and musicians.

The blue silk shirt with two Swallows takes its inspiration from a shirt that Paul McCartney use to wear when his daughter was a kid. She also created a similar blouse for her womenswear collection.

The collection comprised of both casual as well as formal wear. The collection is colorful and in Stella McCartney words the collection will help men to have a fun and freestyle wardrobe. From bright jammies and socks to overcoats and suits, the variety in the collection is immense.
