Stella McCartney always makes beautiful feminine clothing and despite being heavily pregnant (a mere few months away from giving birth) she still presented her collection at Paris Fashion Week. She wasn't short on family support either, which is something I love about the McCartneys. There to support Stella in Paris was her father Sir Paul, her sister Mary and her brother James. She also got celebrity support from Kanye West and Lily Allen. Her latest collection was shown against a botanical backdrop created by French botanist, Patrick Blanc. There was a vintage feel to her collection which incorporated retro floral prints. See after the jump for more images...

A lot of the items reference lingerie reminiscent of McCartney's early collections. There were barely there camisoles and short white delicate dresses with ruffles and embroidery detailing.

The whole collection seemed to have been designed in consideration of her own post baby stomach (well who wouldn't consider their own needs!) with loose fitting material around the midriff. It was a line that could be worn at a seaside resort such as St Tropez. The printed dresses are very wearable and could be worn on their own with sandals or over jeans for cooler days/evenings.

The Spring/Summer line referenced seventies glamour with wide legged trousers, cut out detail and halter neck tops. She included a few tailored items such as safari jackets and blazers. Accessories included beaded sandals and totes which matched the floral print dresses.
