Blumarine’s little sister, Blugirl, was a fun après-ski array of goat-hair boots, fur bonnets and earmuffs, and fur vests crowning a flirty assortment of skirts, shorts and cute little dresses.
Of course, there were also a few adorable little black dresses thrown into this colorful mix.
The overall 1960s flavor (digested through an 80s filter) took form mostly within the embroidered shift dresses and mod styled pieces. The styling did carry the looks straight into battle like a well-trained little army. But, the feel and mood couldn’t be anymore youthful while remaining surprisingly classic.
The fun factor didn’t only come with the bursts of color. The retro prints (in a vibe similar to Christian Bérard’s textile work in the late 1940s) helped give the girly-girl twist a go, and the color blocking gave a shot of excitement to liven up the line-up.
This collection might simply put Mongolian lamb back into the mainstream, as it turned more than a few looks into frothy delights. The effect was not only fun but also fashion forward. As much as the collection appears youthful, it is really much more sophisticated and complex once taken apart.
Anna Molinari knows a thing or two about delivering a strong, solid collection and this season she didn’t disappoint.
