Stella Jean Fall 2019 – Milan Fashion Week
Stella Jean Fall 2019 runway show, whose usual influence is based on cultural references- especially from the Caribbean, proved to do the same. The garments looked to be visual pieces that represented different cultures from different parts of the world. From the watercolor prints to the stark bold prints- the collection seemed to highlight art across the world. The opening piece was a statement with in itself, focusing on a powerful blue, orange and red plaid statement tie waistcoat. While the coats were heavy, the dresses and skirts that accompanied the collection, were light and flowy, like the button down v-neck maxi dress that look like a painted watercolor canvas. The looks were styled with pastel turtlenecks and cream or orange slouchy boots. The entire collection felt like walking through an art gallery- stopping to browse at each different piece from one particular artist. In this case, the featured artist was Stella Jean.
Some of the looks even made you think of a specific country- like the plaid blue, white and red short coat and flowy dress combo that made you instantly think of London’s flag. And as any good designer knows, there were looks that could work for any woman whether bold or not. Stella Jean offered structure utilitarian pieces to lacey feminine pieces and everything in between. So even if you haven’t traveled the world- pick a place you want to go and there’s definitely a piece in this collection that can add just a little piece of the world to your closet.
