The Cholitas Luchadoras, Bolivian female wrestlers, served as inspiration for Stella Jean’s collection. Their colorful outfits influenced the feminine lineup, which was filled with South American references. They included joyful embroideries peppering a range of airy, fresh frocks, such as an off-the-shoulder maxidress and a cotton eyelet long number worn with a bomber. The wide, horizontal pleated skirts also echoed Bolivian local styles. In keeping with her signature aesthetic mixing multicultural influences, Jean introduced Fifties North American references, in the shape of graphic bowling shirts — bravely matched with hyper feminine cocktail dresses showing arty patterns of giraffes — and a fringed miniskirt layered over men’s boxer shirts. An African graphic tie-dye motif was splashed on fitted polos and a shirtdress worn with coordinating shirt pants. Despite the abundance of patterns and decorative elements, which are not easy to integrate in a single collection, the designer managed to deliver a cohesive lineup that actually felt more balanced and fresh than previous efforts.
