Stella Jean is slowly but steadily making a name for herself on the runways. She has become a mainstay during Milan fashion week over the past few seasons and I have to say her new offering is pretty sweet. Let’s review.

Stella Jean Menswear Spring 2016.
Stella Jean is just getting started but her menswear collections are evolving rapidly. This season, the Stella Jean Spring 2016 man is a little more relaxed than his Fall 2015 counterpart. The buttoned up look certainly didn’t go unappreciated but this new assortment has a touch of ease that engages the eye.
 
Prints on prints on prints. That’s always been Jean’s M.O. That hasn’t changed but the tone has. It’s light and welcoming. The prints are less ethnic but still evoke a cultural energy. Stella’s skill remains not only in her tailoring but her ability to layer very contrasting prints and colors while still making them wearable and flat out appealing.
 
Overall, the collection is another step in the right direction for Stella. Unlike Jean’s womenswear that’s frankly become a little redundant, this feels fresh and revitalized. Standout looks include printed suits, an ikat printed overcoat and bomber jacket and a red and white buttoned down shirt that I can see myself totally wearing. Well done, Stella.
 
Oh and Stella, if you’re reading this, more black models please. Thanks!
