We're going to power through Milan and make a quick swing by Paris to wrap up Fashion Month that ended earlier this week.

Next up: Stella Jean who has put the brakes on her excessively themed collections. This one for Spring 2019 sees the designer hewing more closely to her roots of simple, yet colourful styles with nipped in waists and voluminous skirts. Tropical touches are still evident but not overwhelming or costume-like. Beaded wire art spelling out her name on chain belts were sweet touches. There were some and Ankara prints (which are her staple) on tiered skirts but the more notable pieces were the off-the-shoulder day dresses and sleeveless trench coats. We also loved the flat ballet slippers with tassel. The jewel-toned shoes were the perfect punctuation mark to her clothes. The collection still very much evoked a tropical paradise, but Stella Jean has found a formula that works for her and we can't complain. There was nothing groundbreaking about the cuts or styles, but overall it added up to a very covetable collection.
