Blumarine Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Pastel colors and almost frozen colors perfectly combined with heavy clothes rich in fabric and embellishments: Anna Molinari has just showcased one of the coziest urban-chic Blumarine collections of all time. Starting off with juvenile pieces that exude romanticism and ethereal vibes, the Italian fashion designer managed to follow her Blumarine girl from her early twenties into womanhood, emphasizing her beauty and free-spirited soul at the same time. It is a sophisticated yet extremely resolute young woman that the Blumarine pre-fall 2016 collection capitalizes on, someone, who likes to dress to impress (most likely herself) from Monday to Sunday, from a Saturday brunch with her friends to a meeting at work, without endangering her personal style.

Blumarine Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Accentuating the woman’s figure was clearly Molinari’s goal too, as proven by the presence of the curve hugging silhouettes, cuts (such as peplums) and sharp lines that could perfectly balance any body type. That’s why the collection really has it all, from elegant evening dresses to lace uber-feminine frocks, culottes included.

Molinare chose to give her inimitable point of view on the main pre-fall 2016 trends, which include clear mannish cuts and lines and a huge passion for pastel colors. That’s why the Blumarine pre-fall 2016 collection plays with different styles as well as fabrics, alternating the aforementioned lace with tweed, boiled wool fabrics and quartz rose patterns. To emphasize such choices, Molinari chose delicate creamy and pastel hues for the more conventional feminine looks and darker colors for the unisex ones, scattering flower petals and actual flowers here and there within the many proposals.

Aside from the collection’s very first outfit, which consists of a midi coat with animal patterns and a pair of burgundy pointy shoes, the collection lacks in prints, as it solely focuses on botanical designs. However, given the fact the Molinari frequently added cheerful touches of colors throughout the entire lineup, such a choice does not leave us wondering whether something was missing or not. Quite on the contrary, if not overwhelmed, our sight is at least pleased by such a mixture of delicate colors and stronger, yet always ethereal, darker hues.

As we said before, Molinari definitely took her time to focus on details, which gave most of her outfits lots of personality and drama, including the tulle and organza frocks, fur collars and wide silky belts. Although very minimalistic in style, the Blumarine pre-fall 2016 collection isn’t afraid to dare with some statement pieces too, such as the loungewear-inspired coats, wrap skirts and bright white jabot shirt (as well as total-white outfits).

Molinari then particularly enjoyed playing with the skirts and coats, opting for lavish fabrics such as crocodile skin and lacquered leather prints. If you were wondering if it could be possible to wear minimalistic yet very quirky outfits, here you have the answer!
