The Stella McCartney Spring 2014 Collection is a statement on animal rights. McCartney is a high-profile vegetarian that enjoys the look of leather, crocodile and other luxurious animal skin imitations as part of her runway shows. Her spring collection is infused with imitation crocodile prints, which are shattered into individual scales and sewn up into an appliqué on a tulle base. Applied to an A-line skirt and boxy shirt creates an exclusive McCartney look.

It’s refreshing to see high-profile designers take a stance against the use of animal products in the fashion industry and she proves that the imitation look is just as delicate and fashionable. The rest of her collection features camel colors, lace appliqué in dresses and safari-inspired jumpers with relaxed silhouettes. Each ensemble is paired with modern cat-eye sunglasses as well.
