Jessica Stam believes prints can make you look confident.
The Canadian model will soon be seen showing off the Peter Pilotto collection for Target.
The range includes the brand’s trademark kaleidoscopic patterns, which Jessica loves.
“I think wearing print can make you look more confident, even if you don’t necessarily feel that confident,” she explained during an interview with the designers and Net-a-Porter’s The Edit.
“I love the patterned sweaters – they’re all prints I haven’t seen before.”
Jessica, 27, has modelled for major designers like Chanel, Christian Lacroix, Christian Dior, Givenchy, and Jean Paul Gaultier.
But despite having access to some of the finest designer threads in the world, she revealed she loves shopping on the high street for her basics.
“I love Target: it is the place to go for everyday necessities, luxury goods and… Peter Pilotto!” she said.
The Peter Pilotto collection includes everything from party dresses to swimwear and matching accessories, all with distinctive, colourful prints.
And Jessica believes the range is part of a new trend that’s happening in fashion.
“It’s called ‘power clashing’. That’s how it was coined on [the TV show] Girls, anyway!” she explained. “But these pieces are athletic and at the same time very feminine. I have six brothers, so I grew up very sporty. Having that contrast is probably one of the reasons it appeals to me.”
Another reason the collection drew the model in is because it put her in the holiday frame of mind. “It got me thinking about my summer wardrobe for the Hamptons,” she said. “A lot of those separates would look great in Montauk.”
