Stella's Tropical Stripes.........
























Models played croquet and ping pong and frolicked around the gardens, while magazine editors mingled with celebrities such as Liv Tyler and Naomi Watts. Stella's launch party for her resort collection held in St. Luke's in the West Village was very fun and informal mirroring her new collection. The idea of Resort collections originally came about for rich clients holidaying at Christmas and New year in sunny climes and so it was to service their wardrobes for this lifestyle. Now designer clothes are accessible to all, many young designers resort collections are less about old rules and are more about experimenting with fun design ideas. They are collections that are inter season and versatile.
Stella's collection was made up of pieces that could easily be bought as separates and worked into your own wardrobe if you could not afford a whole look. I absolutely adore the digital Hawaiian prints mixed with colour striped tops and the black pant and tee suit with the amazing Hawaiian print was definitely my favourite. If you look at the whole collection there is also some hounds tooth pants and skirts mixed with little Hawaiian print tees, sweaters as well as crombie and blazer jackets. It really is a beautiful, fun, poppy collection.
For us mere mortals who won't be holidaying in St. Tropez this January this collection makes it possible to pick and mix some really cool printed pieces and add those pieces to our winter wardrobes. And if we can't pick and mix from this it will certainly leave us craving tropical Hawaiian prints. J'adore.......
