Blumarine Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – Milan Fashion Week
Blumarine brought the sparkle back into our lives with the gorgeous Blumarine fall/winter 2015-2016 collection presented earlier today on the Milan Fashion Week runway. Blumarine is the original label started by Anna Malinori and her late husband Gianpaolo Tarabini back in 1977 and has been one of the four brands under the Blufin S.p.A. name to show off its latest pieces to the world. The Blugirl brand was just on the runway last night, while we have managed to enjoy the glittering beauty of the Blumarine brand just a few hours ago.
While we start off on the grey side with an oversized knit coatdress over a cowl neck grey hued sweater a touch darker than the pullover on top, we quickly move into the star speckled design that takes over the line-up and really makes it pop. From a flimsy miniskirt in simple gauze with the red and the blue and yellow stars all over, slightly reminiscent of the American flag at first glance, to a long sleeve high neck mini dress that has the star shaped glitters covering up all the important bits, as well as the blouse in the same material and style tucked into a high waist satin skirt, Blumarine offers some pretty exciting fall looks we want to embrace right away.
There is an overwhelming focus on the mini hems, whether it is a coat, a dress or an oversized pullover that brushes against the thighs, high up where the legs will be given maximum exposure. It might not do to have those with ample trunks like Kim Kardashian to wear these pieces as that would mean a little too much body exposure for a daily stroll around town. We do have some longer skirts appearing in the mix as well though, even if they are fewer and far in between. We have two mid-calf length fur coats with a touch of leather on one and a touch of fur against a black and brown leather backdrop on the other, while a few red carpet style dresses do make it onto the catwalk with their lightweight shimmering bodies and defined waists. One even sports the deep V plunging neckline that has been trending throughout the year now and one that also appears on the mini dresses that appear later on in the line-up. Of course, the entirely covered up look is also in and Blumarine capitalizes on the length it creates in the female body.
Probably some of the nicest pieces are actually the jumpsuits with their silk and satin, the intriguing patterning and the keyhole plunge. And then of course comes the ode to the floral design trends, appearing on all types of material in all shapes and colors, bringing a pop of spring and a reminder of more colorful days to the garments that fall to the floor or are cut high at the hem, just below the top of the thigh, balanced out with the turtleneck style neckline and the gauzy translucent arms, showing off pinkish purple rises and their yellow counterparts against a black background. Since the bare legged look is in, we might be seeing a lot of these pieces in the warmer regions of the world moreso than the colder locations up north.
