Born and raised in London and the English countryside, Stella McCartney graduated from Central St Martins in 1995. A lifelong vegetarian, she does not use any leather or fur in her designs. Her collections include women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, lingerie, eyewear, fragrance, kids and the Adidas Sport Performance line.
In 2003, the STELLA Eau de Parfum was launched. As with her ready-to-wear, the fragrance plays with contrast and contradictions by combining femininity with sharpness and softness with edge, vintage with modern, sexiness with sensuality, the extravert with the delicate. Inspired by a rose in full bloom, a predominant rose base is fused with peony flower for lightness, mandarin essence for a fresh vibrancy and woody ambers for a mysterious sensuality.
L.I.L.Y, launched in 2012, is a journey through the senses. It begins with the smell of a spring morning, dappled sunlight through the trees, a vision of delicate lily of the valley. It is the passage of time across a forest floor. The touch of moss and the darker intensity of truffles.More masculine and earthy, but still seductive and sensual.L.I.L.Y is the story of a girl becoming a woman.
