FashionEmerging Designer: Stella Jean

Feast your eyes on the transatlantic conquests of emerging designer Stella Jean and be wowed by the bold batiks paired with checks, stripes, jewels, and a menagerie of animal prints. Unlike most designers, this Italian-born former model pulls the resort card season after season, dishing up savory pattern play tailored with a feminine, fifties sensibility.

Some of my favorite looks from her spring/summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection include studded details along turbans, stacked cuffs, and sky-high heels. Woven hats team with extravagant earrings and collar necklaces to top the clever color combinations that are reminiscent of a bustling marketplace, and a sunny pop of yellow eyeshadow ensures you’re transported directly to a land of warmer-weather and unabashed color.
