Fab Blab: Stella Votes Color For Spring

Apr 9 2009 - 1:00pm

We heart Stella. This was unanimous at the end of her charming night in San Francisco. It's not every day a designer heavyweight makes her way to the foggy city (why is that?). Neiman Marcus [1] hosted a carnival-themed bash in honor of the designer where fun was in every crevice. A balloon animal-making clown, caricature artist, popcorn, pool, and foosball kept guests amused, while a popup shop with Spring and Fall Stella pieces kept peeps shopping. A nice British touch: Pimm's [2]! We stole Stella away to ask her some Spring-inspired questions. After complimenting one of us on our "lovely warm hand," we discovered that Stella hearts Spring just as much as we do.


Congratulations on being awarded [3] by the National Resources Defense Council of America.

"Oh, thank you!"

Spring is in the air. What do you think from your collection, or in general, is the freshest thing a woman should have for Spring right now?

"I would say a good color. Something to take everyone out of Winter. Wake everyone up. A little flash of color. We have some really beautiful coral dresses and things. And also a whimsical print."

We love your Spring collections in particular. Do you prefer warm-weather dressing?

"I like all the seasons for different reasons but Spring I like, I'm a big fan of Spring, in general. Just in life, it's a hopeful time. You're stepping into Summer, which is lovely."
