The Blumarine show is usually a bright spot on the Milan fashion week schedule, figuratively speaking; designer Anna Molinari is known for her more-is-more aesthetic and never fails to bring on upbeat color and shine.
Soft shades of blue did show up on the runway today, and one voluminous knit cashmere and mohair jacket was spun with what was described as a wave formation in the back. Other cozy winter layers included a powder pink wrap coat that swept to the floor.
Overall, though, the palette was more reminiscent of an urban milieu than anything else, and houndstooth came micro (on strong-shouldered suits) and macro (on a fur cape). Given the mood for a tougher, more streamlined wardrobe that’s in the air this season, even dedicated maximalists like Molinari are paring back, which might account for the black leather button-ups and parade of peg-legged pants today. Still, there was room for girls who just want to have fun, too. The playful baby pink mink minidress and cashmere cream romper both impractical and refreshingly playful ranked high on that list.
