Beatle baby Stella McCartney is the newest lux designer H&M has tapped to bring high style to the mall masses (fan-flapping Karl Lagerfeld put us in stovepipe jeans and skinny black ties last year). Her one-time fall collection hits stores today (Thursday, November 10) and is priced between $29.90 and $198. We're gaga over her puffy nylon trench coat and silky tunic dresses. 1 Dundas West, 416-593-0064, www.hm.com.
