Five Days of Fashion - Stella Jean

This is the last in the 'Five Days of Fashion' series, be sure to have a look at the other four posts too! There are some brilliant designers there too! 
Last but not least is Stella Jean. If you don't feel summery enough, you will by the end of this one.

What Farfetch Say -
Stella Jean
There’s been a lot of buzz about Stella Jean lately. Her ladylike silhouettes, borrowed from the 1950s, have been dipped in hothouse colour and reimagined with wild, exuberant prints. The designer draws inspiration from both her Italian background (craftsmanship, meticulous attention to detail and dramatic shapes) and her Caribbean heritage (those exotic prints and daring colour palettes), resulting in a collection that demands second glances.

My thoughts -
Anything that has a 1950s style silhouette is always a winner with me, if you read often, you'll know that I am partial to a circle skirt now and then. Stella Jean has combined these classic shapes and certainly made them her own with bold colour and prints which remind me of the novelty prints available in the 1950s.

Clashing the colour and print of different pieces adds a modern edge to the look and certainly brings it bang up to date. Another modernisation is the jewellery, the block colours and bib style necklaces are very modern and again also work to modernise the look of the classic shapes. I can certainly see myself sporting some of Stella Jean's collection, I love the bold pieces that make a statement both on their own or when paired with another piece from the collection.

Do you like the boldness of this collection?
