Designer Stella Jean took the Milan Fashion Week runway to present her eye-catching Fall Winter 2014 womenswear collection.
Stella Jean’s collection takes inspiration from the crossroads of Italy, Japan and Africa, enriched by purely Italian expertise and sartorial craft. In the otherworldly atmosphere of Kabuki theatre, an unusual meeting is going to shatter established anthropological and aesthetic certainties. The evocative hyper-femininity from the East meets the reality of patriarchal men’s fabrics. The hybrid of geisha and mannish attitude will slot into place in a role play that is both conscious and humorous. Other wool kimonos announce more cultural emblems, for example the carp, the popular symbol of the strength of perseverance and of determination in one’s intentions. The array of symbols could not forget a nod to Italy, therefore the knitwear sports the designs of the traditional local playing cards. – from Stella Jean
