Into the Woods

"You can call me Flower if you want to." -From Bambi, Disney 1942

"Into the woods to Grandmother's house." -From Broadway's Into the Woods

The 2009 Fall campaign for Stella McCartney brings Bambi and friends to life. Photographed by Ryan McGinley in the woods of the English countryside, the advertisements are whimsical with their mix of high fashion and Disney animation.
The designer brought the woodsy elements centerstage in this year's campaign, providing a naturalist contrast to some of the delicate and flirtatious details seen in the collection.

Dreaming of the beauty found in a wooded wonderland...

As vibrant as a bluebird, a sweet babydoll dress with a sheer top.

The baby doll dress is accented with black lace and has a vibrancy that echoes the fields of wildflowers.

Lace and pleated details accent a Victorian inspired blouse.

Menswear inspired fabric like houndstooth becomes feminine with the crochet/knit peek-a-boo flower details on the top.

Full sleeves characteristic of the late Victorian Edwardian period are large around the upper arm in the leg-o-mutton shape.

Lacey cutouts and trimmings accent the lingerie-inspired dress. Very romantic and sweet with a softness like that of Monet's "Water Lilies."
The romantic lace and Victorian high collar with a modern twist of geometric shapes.

An unexpected peek through lace at the midriff.
