She may be Paul McCartney’s daughter, but Stella McCartney earned her way into the ranks of fashion’s most elite designers. She learned tailoring while working on London’s Savile Row, did an internship with Christian Lacroix, and served as creative director at Chloe (succeeding none other than Karl Lagerfeld). She launched her own label in 2001 and has made her mark with sweet and sophisticated designs that reflect both her signature style and her personal philosophy by incorporating a natural confidence and consciously avoiding all use of leather and fur.
Being green is where it’s at right now, and Stella McCartney is driving the message home with her Falabella it-bag. It’s a chic piece with a rocker vibe, made of artificial leather and snakeskin.

The British designer, who is strict vegetarian, designed this bag specifically to garner respect for the environment. She explains that “fur or animal skins are not required to be creative and successful”. Carried by hand or worn over the shoulder, the Falabella already has owned popularity among fashionistas and celebrities! While some leading ladies all tote around their Falabellas in their everyday lives, few of them like to save theirs for chic soirées and VIP gatherings: proof that the Falabella is both urban and hippy chic.
In a wide range of colors or neon mod-pop prints and metallic chain instantly make this bag a trendy item. The Falabella is such an unexpected surprise for women everywhere because it can play a variety of roles. Maybe that’s why the bag itself as well as the core values behind Stella McCartney’s work are so often lauded.
The young designer recently reached out to a select few artists to help her launch a new, more unique and artistic Falabella line: David Foox came up with a painted version of the bag that was recently auctioned off to benefit various environmental organizations. Originality and creativity are the key words for Stella McCartney, who’s managed to establish an incontestably successful career for herself.
Stella McCartney’s instantly recognizable Falabella bag has become a worldwide signature of hers. The Falabella bag is a Stella McCartney favorite for its edgy design and vegan-friendly construction.
