Chloé Stella McCartney Metallic Ombré Plastic Vegan Feather Coat Runway F/W 2000
Upon taking the helm at Chloé, Stella McCartney brought a newfound spunk and pizzazz to the usually delicate and feminine brand. Upholding a detail-oriented and artisanal aesthetic, McCartney’s vision injected a bold futuristic flair that was showcased during the Fall 2000 season. Inspired by 80s glam-rock and all things over-the-top, this coat is a show stopping piece.
Thousands of plastic “feathers” in metallic tones of gunmetal, bronze, copper, and ivory are stitched to an espresso linen base. The “feathers” are layered to form a mesmerizing ombré moving from the neck to the hem. This coat envelopes the body with an angular silhouette with a relaxed fit giving the impression of a luxurious fur.
Catching the light and creating a spectacular glittering effect with each movement, this coat is a stunning piece to add a dose of glitz to a sleek ensemble, evening gown or jeans. It can be seen in the featured images on that season’s runway.
