Stefania knows fashion. Stefania knows art. Stefania knows who to collaborate with. Stefania knows how to adopt a craze and run miles with it. At her Mercedes –Benz Fashion Week Joburg, Stefania Morland showcased an exceptional collection of clothing alongside some beautifully styled Pitchulick accessories and to indulge my soul; some Frida Kahlo inspired headpieces. Think fully blossomed, fascinator size shrubs arched across one’s crown. The collection ignited a maximalistic mood without being kitsch at all. I am for the soft tailoring and subtly detailed larger than usual hemlines on the multi dimensional shapes, shifting across very current trends festooned with delicate lady textures.  The calming colour palette swept through blushed tones with regular winks of a sparkle via sequins -Reaffirming the luxe loving woman of her stylish place in the coming season. My eyes were all over the perfectly referenced headgear though. Frida Kahlo happens to be the very first artist I studied in my younger years, so strange things happened in my eyes when Stefania Morland interpreted her iconic floral tiara in an unapologetically South African vibe. Avoiding corny elements altogether -yet again.  The Kahlo –as me and my geeky fashion squad refer to the trend, has seen many interpretations over sometime now -finding its daisy bright position in the neon fad and perfectly dusty rose spot with last season’s pastel fixation. The daring few (AKA c’est mois at a fancy dress party the other day) have even taken the bling route too, adding on tinfoil flowers, sequin leaflets and metallic glow sticks (DON’T ASK). Never in my existence have I ever witnessed The Kahlo carrying so much emotion. Showcased with the kind of passion that propels one to sit, observe and appreciate sans trying to seek depth. Stefania served me. Lesson: Do The Kahlo.
