Stella McCartney unveils collection inspired by Beatles film ‘Yellow Submarine’

Designer's new range is titled 'All Together Now'

Stella McCartney has designed a new collection inspired by the animated Beatles film “Yellow Submarine”, which was digitally remastered in 2018.

The “All Together Now” range features clothing for women, men and children, all of which feature playful graphics, motifs and slogans inspired by classic Beatles songs.

For women, standout pieces include the multi-coloured oversized “All you need is love” jumper and the faux fur coat that features vivid swirls of scarlet, violet, green and mustard.

On the more neutral side of the sartorial spectrum, there’s also the oversized checked blazer and the blue sweatshirt with a cartoon of a yellow submarine embroidered onto it.

Menswear in the collection includes vibrant shirts decorated with pop-art portraits of members of the Beatles and intricately decorated patchwork coats.

Billie Eilish wore a custom outfit from the collection while performing at Glastonbury Festival on Sunday 30 June.

Footwear is also included in the collection, with a striking pair of chunky yellow velcro trainers designed for women.

Like all of McCartney’s clothing, the range has been made using sustainable materials, including organic cotton jersey and denim, regenerated cashmere and sustainable viscose.

The collection debuted at Glastonbury Festival on Sunday 30 June, when pop singer Billie Eilish wore a custom two-piece featuring the designer’s name printed down the side.

The T-shirt and shorts co-ord featured several gaudy cartoons, including one of a blue monster character bearing yellow teeth.

Speaking about the collection, McCartney said: “I recently went to a screening with family and friends for the digital relaunch of ‘Yellow Submarine’. I hadn’t seen it since I was young, and honestly it blew my mind.

“It affected me in a way I just wasn’t expecting. Especially this idea of connecting people and bringing people together – politically this message has never been more relevant. So, I came out and I was like ‘I have to do something.’”

McCartney said that re-imaging the film’s aesthetic into clothing that was in keeping with her brand was a surprisingly seamless process.

“The colours and the psychedelia and the patterns and the prints! It translated effortlessly into the ready-to-wear,” she explained. “It’s an emotional and authentic collection and it really crosses over.”

“All Together Now” is part of Stella McCartney’s Autumn 2019 collections and will be available in Stella McCartney stores and online, and on Farfetch.com from 8 July, followed by further selected wholesaler partners worldwide from 15th July.
