Last night, Stella McCartney showed her spring 2012 collection at the Garden of St. Luke in the Fields in New York City's West Village. We love McCartney's Stateside presentations—they're always somewhere off the fashion-beaten path and usually involve models hanging around looking fabulous or playing garden games—see her pre-fall event from January.
For spring 2012, McCartney's print-clad models played garden games—including ping-pong, croquet, and beating the crap out of a donkey pinata—while celebs including Bono, Liv Tyler, and Estelle looked on. Check out the colorful new collection—filled with bold primary colorblocking, picnic-ready stripes, and floral and tropical landscape prints—in our gallery, above.
