Prints on prints on prints at Stella Jean RTW Fall 2014.

In the world of Haitian-Italian designer Stella Jean, prints never go out of fashion. Showcasing her latest collection at Milan Fashion Week, the designer stated her ‘ultra feminine’ Fall RTW range took inspiration from “the crossroads of Italy, Japan and Africa” (the entire continent, Stella?) shown in her Italian tailoring and symbols, kimono-inspired outerwear and dresses, and use of Dutch Wax print, the unofficial 20th-century adopted fabric in many parts of West and Central Africa.

Despite her ambiguity on her last-mentioned geographical source of inspiration, with heavy vintage 1950s-1970s silhouttes, Dutch Wax prints and use of men’s fabrics, Stella Jean had me coveting every single outfit that cruised down the runway. Come next fall, no wardrobe will be complete without a hint of Stella Jean.

Stella Jean Releases her Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.

Visually and conceptually, Haitian-Italian designer Stella Jean never disappoints. The presentation of her garments and the looks she creates are always fresh, flirty and incredibly fun. Each one of her collections carry an aura about them that’s both classic and timeless. And of course, aside from the designer’s heritage, wax prints, ankara textiles, bold patterns and colours all remain permanent fixtures in her designs - something her latest lookbook confirms yet again.

The one change that would be lovely to see, however, would be the use of black models in her lookbooks.
