Focus On: Stella Nova

It has been a while. Stella Nova, brainchild of designer Trine Skoller, is a Danish womenswear collection which made its Hambledon debut in the late Noughties. It makes a very, very welcome reappearance here for Spring Summer 21.

Trine Skoller the Stella Nova founder

The Background

Stella Nova is an imaginary muse. In the past, Trine Skoller’s collections have been almost like concept albums with a journey or experience of the putative Stella providing very specific inspiration. Who can forget Stella Nova and the Seven Sailors? A precise combination of extremely feminine ruffles and simple nautical navy and stripes woven into a fashion fairy tale. Stella Nova, the brand not the imaginary heroine, is based in Copenhagen. There are some classic Danish elements to the collections: think of the interplay of traditional masculine and feminine shapes; outsize collars and ruffles; a joy in prettiness but an aversion to the saccherine.

Spring 21

We absolutely love this. Titled Little Stories, this is perhaps less a collection than a gathering of beautiful pieces designed to be worn individually or thrown together. We have fallen hard for the mimosa flowers and their promise of brighter times ahead. Check out the Loan dress with stitched and turned out scalloped tiers: simply beautiful. For a simple cotton plaid in gentle colours, look at the Beate shirt with the very sweetest of collars. And the stand out is the multi indigo Linnea dress: a double, triple, even quadruple denim masterwork. If you like a bit of whimsy (and who doesn’t?) there is a beaded shrimp tee shirt called Teresa. Because. There just is.

And remember what Stella says:

 

“The true Stella vibe is to mix and match and not to wait any longer. Focus on creating the perfect wardrobe - always true to season and always consisting of must have treasures that you want to have in your wardrobe now and forever.”

 

Spring 21 is now available online.
