Blumarine’s Spring/Summer 2017 Collection Channels Subtle Mexican Vibes
After unveiling the mature Blugirl spring/summer 2017 collection, Anna Molinari is back on this innovating Milan Fashion Week runway with her Blumarine spring/summer 2017 collection, rife with proposals that were as breathtaking as fresh and modern.
Both fairytale-like and summer-ready, this line-up offered us extremely polished, feminine and sensual pieces that could easily transition from day to night, as well as from an exclusive party at the beach to a more informal one with friends. Perfectly refined in each detail utilized, Anna Molinari’s latest Blumarine collection is unapologetically romantic too, as the designer made ample usage of flared lines, airy sleeves and crisply contoured hems.
Inspired by 20th-century Italian photographer Tina Modotti’s Mexican shots, the Blumarine spring/summer 2017 collection did keep, however, a more modern-day appeal thanks to a few, yet very distinctive proposals. The key to this buzz is to be found in the more youthful and urban-chic array of looks, such as golden shorts and tops, revisited sports bras and leggings, and even off-the-shoulder crop-tops.
Paired with the collection’s most delicate pieces, such as pastel pink gowns and frilly, lightweight palazzo pants, such staples balanced the looks with more functional, eased-up and overall wearable looks, while at the same time treating us to standout designs we could mix and match with garments we already own.
As for the pastel pink colors, Anna Molinari seemed to confirm that pink is going to be, once again, the leading color of the upcoming summer, as she translated this feminine color to both its creamiest and most shocking, bubble-pink hue.
Patches of different pinks often met each other throughout the show, creating a girly, dynamic appeal we yet had to see. Pink, along with a similar soft-toned lilac, was at the core of Anna Molinari’s rediscovered checkered patterns too, which curiously found their blue-toned counterpart in the recently unveiled Antonio Marras spring/summer 2017 collection.
Apron-inspired dresses in checkered patterns welcomed one of the collection’s most distinctive, yet subtle motifs: the Nineties. Crop tops, layered floor-length dresses, as well as see-through mini dresses quickly found their way through the collection, mesmerizing us and then quickly leaving us speechless as soon as the evening dresses came out.
For her most sophisticated red carpet-ready proposals, Anna Molinari combined innovative Nineties-inspired ombre patterns, created with starry dark-toned crystals, with floral lace appliqués and dreamy layered figures, capturing a sense of magic and timeless high fashion we instantly fell in love with.
Towards the end of the runway show, a bright pink furry loungewear-inspired coat made an appearance, making us realize that, although being extremely princess-like and glamorously refined, the collection had a little, whimsical touch that couldn’t really go unnoticed.
Anna Molinari complemented almost all of her Blumarine spring/summer 2017 outfits with pointy-toe, flat furry shoes, which will surely become one of next spring’s hottest must-haves.
