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. 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.
For Autumn 21 we think Stella is going cherry picking, literally. Cherries form the visual motif throughout: the Kiri cardigan with bright red pom poms; the printed Zea jeans; the Sassi shirt (a repeat of the outstanding Spring shape with new print).
