In contrast, a denim section of tunics and shorts in boxy shapes looked somewhat clunky. But as ever, McCartney had a lot of strong tailoring, slightly softened this season in a palette of faded pastels like rose, pistachio, and light blue. The other thing that made her suits look new was the cut of the pants. High-waisted, cropped, cuffed, and with a hint of a flare, they stood out in a month full of floor-scraping trousers.
And what of the red-carpet frocks for her front-row gal pals? The designer, who's expecting baby number four, skipped them this season. As an alternative, she showed a pair of double-breasted backless vests, totally on trend and totally McCartney. Salma and Liv would no doubt approve.
