This combination of ethics and innovation is evident in its new AW18 collection in collaboration with adidas. In this new proposal McCartney opts to experiment with animal print flashes, capturing colored stripes and structured silhouettes, thus creating a new twist in sportswear.

The collection is made up largely of eco-friendly textiles, including recycled polyester and organic cotton. Some more innovative fabrics are also used: McCartney uses Parley Ocean Plastic, a material made from plastic waste discarded in abundance throughout the collection, as well as ECONYL yarn, a technologically advanced textile made from fabric waste and fishing nets.
““We have a responsibility to provide women with a choice that allows them to be a part of a solution through our sustainable pieces and practices,” explains McCartney about her constant commitment to set a positive example. In short, it is fashion, but with conscience.
