This season, Stella Jean forged an impressive collaboration with the organic cotton industry and artisans in the Republic of Benin in West Africa. With an aim to enlighten and effect positive change, Stella Jean traced the historic cotton route from Benin to Brazil to Italy, with the aim to create a collection which celebrates the resilience of the nation's culture and craft against the appalling history of slavery.
Stella Jean's style reflects and evokes her métissage and Creole heritage, in which the cultures from the old continent blend with the proud verve of the new continent. This marriage of opposites creates an ensemble that is tuned-in to its own precious uniqueness. Convergence and exchange are fundamental points of origin, sustained by the need to convey a new concept of multiculturalism applied to fashion, which promotes cultural crossover without ever compromising one's own identity.
Our latest delivery from the Haitian-Italian designer features Bahia inspired flounced skirts paired with cotton blouses in check and striped for an everyday take on the culturally charged collection. Jean's signature pleat skirts return in blue toned patterns which also carry through to a mosaic print featured on cotton separates.
The colourful and uplifting collection is perfect for women wanting to embrace a little bit of colour, as well as those not shy of a head to toe print combination. Her designs are truly joyful to wear.
