Taylor Swift Teams Up With Stella McCartney On Lover Merch

Fashion Updates

When plotting the merch for her much-hyped seventh album Lover, there was only one designer Taylor Swift had in mind to collaborate with: Stella McCartney. The two, you see, have been friends for some time. “When I started spending more time in London, Stella and I would go on walks, have cocktails and talk about life,” Swift tells Vogue. “So, when it came time to write this album, I name-checked her in one of my songs and when I played her the album, I said, ‘Should we do something?’”

McCartney, one of the most well-connected women in fashion, was gobsmacked. “I couldn’t believe that my name is in a Taylor Swift song (what?!),” she shares. “After Taylor played me the entire album it gave me such incredible inspiration for the collaboration and it really revolved around the music… What I love is how we really complement each other in what we generate creatively together.”
