A&F: Stella Jean revisited

Last March, I had posted on Stella Jean’s collection for Farfetch.com.  I have found more details on the designer after stumbling upon the Abina website, and was pleasantly surprised 🙂

The BrandStella Jean

The IT Factor: You have Italian crisp master tailoring with ankara, Dutch wax prints. I LOVE!

The Inspiration: Thanks to Google Translate, the website states that “the style of Stella Jean reflects and evokes his métissage and his Creole heritage that blend the cultures of the old, and the verve of the new continent” all coming together in a femininity conscious of her precious uniqueness” .  The moto is “Wax & Stripes Philosophy”.

The Designer Behind the Brand: Stella Jean.  What caught my attention is that Stella is of Haitian origins, so I could not understand her connection to African prints, really.  Well, she feels connected to West Africa (am guessing that is where Haitians are originally from per her website, but I will need to dig deeper on the subject, maybe on my next Afrique et Culture post 😉 ) To me, her clothes look African, but they feel Italian.  Very sharp design, and pricey to match it.

Country of origin: Italy – Haiti

Notable Awards: None that I could find…very surprising.

Sissi’s Notes: So sharp, please keep up the good work, Stella! And maybe a cheaper line for those of us who cannot spend $2,000 on a single clothing item.
