Stella McCartney, 50, has faced the wrath of some Beatles fans who did not take kindly to her latest fashion collection. Sir Paul McCartney’s daughter’s self-titled fashion brand launched the unisex clothing capsule Stella McCartney x The Beatles: Get Back.

The capsule is part of the brand’s spring ‘22 collection and it pays homage to the legendary band.

It also coincides with the release of a new Disney + documentary on the band by Peter Jackson titled Get Back.

However, some Beatles fans were less than impressed by the price tags on the garments as they called on the designer to “give us consideration next time”.

Taking to social media to express their disapproval, others claimed Stella was “cashing in” on her father’s fame.

blaire_walker added: “How are us true Beatles fans able to afford these?

“We would love to be able to show love for @ReaPeterJackson‘s Get Back film even more by wearing these!

“Please make your clothing attainable for everyone @StellaMcCartney not just the wealthy @PaulMcCartney”

dangnammit wrote: “Stella McCartney selling Beatles merch for absurd prices is actually really funny but it stops being funny now that I’ve realised I want this €995 cardigan.”

Stella explained the inspiration behind the clothing line in a statement shared on her brand’s official website.

She said: “Get Back is about so much more than just a song or a concert – it is the timeless story of lifelong friends coming together to create something incredible with laughter and utter fearlessness whilst standing at the forefront of change.

“The Beatles were the faces of a cultural movement for positive change that continues to shape the lives of millions around the world, and I hope this capsule celebrates and communicates these ageless messages to a new generation.”

Express.co.uk has approached representatives for Paul and Stella McCartney for comment.

Stella recently caught up with John Lennon’s sons Julian and Sean, 58 and 46 respectively.

The designer appears to enjoy a close friendship with both men, whom she has branded her “brothers”.

The trio appeared on the red carpet in Los Angeles for the movie premiere of The Beatles: Get Back.

Stella took to Instagram to share a photograph alongside Julian and Sean with her 6.7 million followers.

She captioned the snap: “My brothers from another mother.”

Julian’s mother is John’s first wife, Cynthia, and Sean is John and his second wife Yoko Ono’s son.
