Multiculturalism applied to ethical fashion.
It started with Grace Jones at a gala in Milan and ended in Italy’s Boca Raton. In between, there was a possible robbery, a strike and that glorious feeling of why not that can only be captured by Italian sprezzatura.

With this collection, Jean tackles what she considers the new “3.0 society” and the unpredictability of cultural weaving. Stella Jean uses classic shirts with Korean collars, Ndebele South African motifs, mixed with well known Italian sartorialism to display this in beautifully tailored, vibrant garments.
You never know what will happen! If I hadn’t have gone on a date with an Italian in NYC, then to the amfAR Gala months later to see Grace Jones perform (check it out, wrote about it for Paper magazine here), I would never have visited this little town on the Italian Riviera, Loano.
