BLUMARINE A/W 2014.15
"We’re thinking Anna Molinari believes floral patterns are more than a springtime holdover. For this collection, she plastered the things on all sorts of garments, and all sorts of ways. A knit fabric with gold, spray-paint-effect flower intarsia opened the show and was used on a kimono-like top, a stunning floor-length cape and a prim skirt. From there, it was beautiful, embroidered brocade fabrics, floral lace (topping patchwork velvet to make a subtly sexy dress) and roses embroidered in gold or red. Made into relatively demure frocks (short hemlines, but otherwise covered-up) and paired with fur lapels or cuffs, it was appropriately lush and luxe — the ideal fall garden. It wouldn’t be a Blumarine show without some dialed-up sexy looks like a completely sheer top (to be worn under a gilded blazer) and party frocks that show off plenty of skin. But the trio of strong-shouldered 80s-recalling dresses that closed the show offered kind of a surprise ending." │ via The Fashion Spot
