MILAN, Jan 8, 2014/ — A collection that evokes the gentlemen’s clubs of London’s Victorian era, the Stella Jean Homme Fall 2014 collection is an ironic reversal of history that references the British Empire.
In some ways, it is an exploration of cultural identity for Italian-Haitian designer Stella Jean as he interprets the dandyism in reverse. Using colors, shapes and textures to make his statement, Stella Jean’s vision leaned towards winter which inevitably translated into a determined use of colors.
The collection makes a counter- colonization for images, which also infects accessories dandy winter , now more than ever aware of the journey made through eras and cultures : stylish travel bags borrowed from Sir Phileas Fogg are enriched by an avant-garde twist , intended to infect shoes and scarves.
The unmistakable Italian tailoring characterizes the cut of the clothes; they buy a brand new flavor thanks to vibrant colors.
The use of prints of specific cultural inspirations might seem like a gamble in the winter season, but the attempt to merge the European tradition of cuts and leaders such as loden , the Montgomery and the wax to the fabric quilted down jacket is a stimulating challenge .
