Stella Jean creates her collections based on the same narrative structure typical of a story. Everything originates with an inner journey; the pursuit of an identity that strikes a balance between white and black, between capitals and chains. An impossible quest that evolves into the creation of a new and unclassifiable identity; a (subversive) means of communicating through pictures that tell a story, in which stylings represent the pages and each one must have enough substance to make full sense on its own. And from the cradle of civilisation the story evolves and each collection develops by way of new nations and latitudes, each time seemingly in complete contrast with each other. And it’s the styling that makes every single look readable. In a cultural crossover that never results in parody or caricature, they are a constant reminder that knowledge and respect should never be subordinate to location, but must exist in and of themselves.
