Madelyn Cline is Stella McCartney’s new face
It’s been a stellar year for actress Madelyn Cline, whose star continues to rise thanks to her role in Netflix phenomenon Outer Banks. Today, the 25-year-old was revealed as the newest campaign star for Stella McCartney in a series of images shot in California at The Gentle Barn sanctuary and animal haven. As the fight against animal cruelty has always been central to McCartney’s eco-conscious brand mission, the campaign spotlights the importance of caring for adorable barnyard animals—and Cline was chosen for her own love of animals and commitment to a vegan way of life. The concept of the shoot takes its inspiration from the slogan Change the History, coined by Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. (Nara’s illustrations and social statements also feature on certain pieces in the collection.) As a refresher, the Spring Summer ’23 collection is free from leather, feathers, fur and exotic skins, and crafted using 91% responsible materials. “My mantra right now is: ‘We are what we eat, we are what we wear’. Our choices have an interconnected impacts and if we want to change the history and protect Mother Earth for future generations, we must take action – from stopping eating meat, to ending the needless deaths of animal for fashion,” McCartney said in a release.

Julien Dossena is Jean Paul Gaultier’s next collaborator
After Jean Paul Gaultier was spotted front row at Julien Dossena’s recent runway offering for Paco Rabanne (the first since the label’s namesake founder passed away) in Paris, it was widely speculated that Dossena would team up with JPG for the next installment of his couture collaboration series. Today, Puig (the Spanish conglomerate which owns both labels) confirmed the news that the designers would work together on a couture collection that will be revealed in July. Dossena, who’s about to celebrate 10 years at the helm of Paco Rabanne, will be the fifth guest couturier, following in the footsteps of Haider Ackermann, Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing, Y/Project & Diesel’s Glenn Martens, and Chitose Abe of Sacai. In an exclusive sit down with Vogue.com, Dossena said he’s been thumbing the “well organized archives” for ideas, as well as researching the inclusion of sustainable deadstock fabrics. Name checking The Chic Rabbi collection (Fall 1993) and The Constructivists (Fall 1986) as two seminal collections currently on his moodboard, he said: “Right now, I’m spending entire days in the archives, it’s fantastic. It’s like having a chance to create a personal exhibition. And in terms of codes, his work with corsetry and lingerie in general are among the most beautiful pieces I’ve ever seen. That’s where you see the couturier, the nobility of the clothes and a technique that’s very impressive.” Watch this space!

Once London’s first luxury department store, it’s now comprised of exclusive residences, retail, eateries, wellness facilities, a cinema, the UK’s first Six Senses hotel, and more. Getting nostalgic, Delevingne said: “The Whiteley was where I spent most of my teenage years bowling, ice skating, and generally misbehaving. It was a huge part of my childhood, and now it’s this bright, brilliant and beautiful new establishment, and I can’t wait to get to know it in a whole new way. Working with Mark has been an absolute dream come true. I have known his work all of my life, and
to be able to say that I’ve worked with him, it’s truly a pinch me moment.” Peep the campaign below:
