Each fashion season,

I eagerly await the Milan shows

and more specifically, the new collection from Italian / Haitan desiger

Stella Jean.

Her fearless colour and print mismatch,

often inspired by a particular cultural focus-

generates creation of joyful clothing.

 

For Spring 2016, the collection’s regional reference appears to be of Peru-

 

 

patterns in linear configuration

a staple of red / blue hues

an abundance of colour scope

pom pom / staw fringe details

In addition to geographical notes,

Ms. Jean keeps things interesting in mention of various fashion eras:

from ’50s flair to a current on-trend nod-

à la the bomber jacket.
