Clashing Prints: Stella Jean At Milan Fashion Week

This is about designer Stella Jean's presentation during Milan Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 14.

Milan Fashion Week is in full swing and we couldn't wait to get a look at Stella Jean's new collection. A Rome-based designer of Haitian and Italian background, when she emerged, Jean knew how to leave a mark on the runway. Her strong signature utilizes a lot of African prints mixed with different other designs to create a sparkling mix of unique attire. Jean made herself known for her stunning approach at blending clashing prints and edgy cuts. It's thus, with a weary sense of déjà vu, that we set eyes on her Spring/Summer 14 collection. Bold, colorful, oversized, big hats, cocktail dresses, shorts, high-waisted skirts and pants — everything is in there and you're likely to find something for your taste. The past collections looks alike, however, and even though she's one of our favorites, we do hope that she'll surprise us next season.
