Stella McCartney Resort Rocks Reggae, Perfume, and a Message in a Bottle

Stella McCartney celebrated resort season with her annual garden party in NYC. This year the designer moved the chic fête from the Elizabeth Street garden in Nolita to the garden grounds behind the High Line Hotel. Ky-Mani Marley the only child of Bob Marley and Jamaican table tennis champion Anita Belnavis kept guests grooving to reggae throughout the night, reminding New Yorkers that summer was indeed hopefully? finally? around the corner. “I grew up on reggae,” said McCartney told The Daily.

“No one plays enough reggae anymore.” So how did she and Marley connect? “Oh, you know, just through life. Just through a little journey…” said McCartney with a chuckle and a wink.The crowd had access to booths that included free bottles of McCartney’s latest fragrance, Pop Bluebell, and plastic bottles that contained messages with facts about the environment. Ours read, “Plastic normally takes thousands of years to decompose. But 16-year-old Daniel Burd made it happen in just three months by isolating a microbe that lunches on plastic bags.” Always eco-minded, McCartney recently partnered with Parley for the Oceans, a group that has made a yarn out of ocean trash to create a new fiber.
