Style Inspo: Culture Clash Style via Stella Jean S/S 2015Wednesday, September 07, 2016
Stella Jean is an Italian-Haitian designer who blends her cultural heritages phenomenally. Her design aesthetic has been described by Vogue as a "multicultural, eccentric mix-and-match." She tries to travel to a different place each season, and then reflects that local culture on the runway. In her Spring 2015 collection, she went to Haiti.
My favorite looks from this collection were the ones that paired sports jersey t's with bold African print skirts. I think it's a style that will come to be identified with the mid 2010s, so it will probably end up dating itself. Still, the juxtaposition of masculine and feminine in bold, bright colors leaves a memorable look that's fun and funky at the same time.
