Summer’s only just officially over for two days but why not already dream of what next year’s summer getaway destination will be? And when picturing yourself at that tropical destination you might just imagine the outfits that go with it too. Like a printed blue and white dress with a colourful, sleeveless striped coat over it. Like an off shoulder blue and white printed midi dress with a strap of tiger print at the bottom. Like a white branded tee paired with some high waisted striped shorts. Like a bikini top worn with a midi printed skirt. Or a bright red dress with African inspired prints on the skirt. It was the ultimate holiday wardrobe, filled with prints and color. Nothing too out of the box, nothing we’ve never seen before really, yet every look was highly likable and wearable. And that’s just the conclusion after seeing all the designs. Learning about Stella Jean’s inspiration for this collection made it all the more beautiful and interesting. The Haitian-Italian designer collaborated with the organic cotton industry and artisans in the Republic of Benin in West Africa. She traced the cotton route (full of slavery influences) from Benin to Brazil to Italy. It’s never just about the pretty clothes for Stella Jean. More so it’s about promoting and supporting the African culture and Africa’s potential. Now guess where she’d like you to go to on your next holiday?
