The Stella McCartney x The Beatles: Get Back capsule is a tribute to her father’s legendary British band and takes a cue from their infamous last album, Let It Be, as well as a forthcoming one.
Reinterpreting a pivotal moment in musical and political history through aesthetics relevant to today’s generation, the Get Back collection of conscious pieces easily worn by women and men will be launched as part of the Spring 2022 collection. The collection includes a regenerated nylon bomber inspired by Paul McCartney’s own wardrobe, galaxy wash organic cotton denim, a patchwork cardigan coat, knit tracksuits as well as accessories – featuring graphic and collaged takes on the band’s iconography. These are contrasted with The Fool collective’s trippy and colourful graphics on t-shirts, jumpers and hoodies plus a vibrant version of the Reclypse unisex trainer, Stella’s most sustainable vegan sneaker to date.
The capsule collection was unveiled on November 18 with a star-studded event at Los Angeles’ iconic Henson Recording Studios, attended by the likes of Orlando Bloom, Reese Witherspoon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Emma Chamberlain and Jaden Smith.
Stella McCartney said: “Get Back is about so much more than just a song or a concert – it is the timeless story of lifelong friends coming together to create something incredible with laughter and utter fearlessness whilst standing at the forefront of change.
The Beatles were the faces of a cultural movement for positive change that continues to shape the lives of millions around the world, and I hope this capsule celebrates and communicates these ageless messages to a new generation.”
“The Beatles: Get Back,” directed by three-time Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson, follows John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Star as they prepare for their first live show in almost two years.
The documentary displays the warmth, friendship, and creative genius that constitute the renowned foursome’s legacy, and it was compiled from over 60 hours of video taken in 1969. It provides an intimate look at The Beatles’ final recording sessions and includes their final live performance together — a rooftop concert in London’s Savile Row, which is being broadcast for the first time in its full.
