New York Magazine: Stella McCartney Collaborated With the Internet’s New Favorite Artist
Posted on Wednesday, August 6, 2014 by Laura Braun
Stella McCartney has an eclectic group of friends, many of them outside fashion circles — you can tell just by the guest list at her annual resort presentation-cum-party. (Lorne Michaels, Jeff Koons, Marilyn Minter, and Jenny Lewis attended the last one.) Now McCartney has recruited a new pal, artist Petra Cortright — a Venice Biennale alum known for her subversive takes on internet art — for a series of video projects, the first of which is out today. McCartney told the Cut, "I was instantly struck by Petra’s work, her effortless cool-girl approach. She represents the next-generation Stella girl to me in every way. Her work is mind-blowingly cool and she is the real deal." Watch Petra shape-shift while wearing a piece from the house's pre-fall collection above.
