Stella Jean is the queen of ethnic fashion. Her women’s collections are always way better than many other Milan-based designers fancy shows. For AW15 season, Stella referenced her work to India and Nepal – sunny colours, enchanting embroideries and oriental silhouettes appeared not only at her women’s collection, but also at men’s. I mean, these guys look so good in all that bold, print splendour! The kaleidoscopic jackets, hand-stitched pea-coats and turquoise trousers rule. Although I am not a print-loving person, I would love to wear a few of those pieces on myself.
Prabal Gurung, one of the hottest names in New York, surely brings as some Asian culture this season. In reality, the original inspiration that ruled in here, was found in the place, where Prabal’s parents came from- Nepal. After his last trip to his home-country, Gurung brought so many new ideas… No wonder why the collection was all about orange tunics that are worn by Himalayan monks! They were buzzing around on whole Instagram… But still, although the collection was a bit out of old route of the designer, some signature touch was here- sweaters styled with wispy chiffon skirts and of course the red carpet gowns kept in warm, red colours. “It’s one of the last remaining Shangri-Las” he said of his beautiful country. Surely it is, looking at these fantastic clothes.
