STELLA MCCARTNEY IS MAKING MEN’S WEAR – TheNewYorkTimes
“On Thursday — as the men’s fashion circus swirled in Florence at the Pitti Uomo trade fair — the designer confirmed long-rumored plans for a men’s line, to debut Nov. 10 in London alongside her spring women’s collection, the one that used to be presented in May but that has now moved to a see-now/buy-now schedule, with the show taking place just before the clothes go on public sale. Similarly, the men’s wear will be sold a month after the big reveal, hitting shelves in early December.”

The capsule collection places the logos of five seminal New York City gay clubs (including The Stonewall Inn, The Eagle, The Monster, and the now-defunct Catty Shack and Meow Mix) onto t-shirts and hoodies. In the wake of Sunday’s tragic shootings, what started as a poignant celebration of the storied spaces in New York’s LGBT community has turned into a fundraising drive.”
