NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) British designer Stella McCartney offered a modern take on her brand's signature looks at Paris Fashion Week on Monday (March 7), presenting a selection of puffa jackets and pleated dresses for women's winter wardrobes. Showing at Paris' Palais Garnier, the designer, known for mixing luxury and sporty, unveiled plenty of comfy-looking creations in front of an audience that included her father, former Beatle, Paul McCartney, and racing driver Lewis Hamilton. Quilted puffa jackets came in an array of styles -- belted, short and as gilets. There were also quilted black shorts. Dresses were floor length and oversized -- some with ruffled detailing at the front -- or came pleated in silk with lace. McCartney, who does not use leather or fur, also put prints of swimming swans on high-waisted trousers, dresses and tops. There were also denim dresses and tops, decorated with bold tie-dye and elastic cords. McCartney's colour palette included copper, gold and silver metallics, pink, scarlet, black, green, grey, peach and yellow. Footwear was minimal with pointed-toe mules and triangular wedge pumps. Flats had front zips. Paris Fashion Week runs until March 9.
