The capsule designed by Stella Jean for United Colors of Benetton reworks the concept of knitwear with a collection that’s very feminine in its nuances and meanings. As always, the Roman designer infiltrates Italian style with textile traditions belonging to southern countries. Colorful ethno-folk additions on coats, sweaters and knit dresses. The accessories are in part made in collaboration with a community of Haitian and Ethiopian craftsmen, standing by the philosophy – which also pertains to the brand – of crossing socio-cultural factors and restoring manufacturing traditions.
Created only with quality yarns such as cashmere and mohair, the capsule stands out with its bright colors: from bright blue to army green, from orange to brick red. What stands out are the eye-catching motifs inspired by Navajo culture, particularly the benevolent Yeii spirits, depicted with stylized figures, who for Native Americans are symbols of protection for the wearer.
