My today's look is inspired by Stella Jean's Spring Summer 2015 collection which I liked tremendously. Bright and colourful African theme prints are paired with checkered shirts, football jerseys or polka dots. It was only her third proper showing and she is already known for her "wax-and-stripes" signature. Wax for the wax-resist prints she develops in Africa and her mother's native Haiti and stripes borrowed from her father's Italian-made shirts. The pairing of African prints and Italian stripes allows her to bring two cultures together to show they can coexist.
My African theme print skirt was bought in a local boutique. Perhaps it is not as bright and colourful as those by Stella Jean but still interesting and beautiful and I love it.
I paired the skirt with a black-and-white checkered shirt and accessorised it with stripy belt, red stones necklace and red shoes.
