While we are currently in the throes of getting ready for the New Year celebrations and counting down to 2016, the Christmas weekend already behind us, we cannot help but begin to get antsy, waiting for the spring season to arrive, bringing with it lighter clothing and lovelier designs. Though winter looks can be incredible, they are not always practical with the snow and ice, the sleet and hail, the winds and biting temperatures freezing up your hair. This is why we have been looking through the latest in Blumarine spring/summer 2016 ad campaign all day and enjoying the gentleness of the emotions that it inspires within us, a calm after the storms of winter. Model Lou Schoof certainly captures the beauty of the designs, bringing in a rebellious vintage aspect to the outfits that we are enjoying quite a bit.
Founded back in 1977 by Anna Molinari and Gianpaolo Tarabini, the brand is not quite as big as it could be but still rakes in a neat 150 million Euros plus a year. Blumarine is a luxury brand and caters to the ladies for whom no dress is too small and no diamond too big. It is a brand that also has a sister called Blugirl and both make it onto the Fashion Week runways on an annual basis. With good reason too as they have some rather covetable designs!
For the spring season we have been given a few odd images for now, depicting what we await to find. This includes floral embroidery, comfortable blouses and side slit pants, billowy dresses, open back and wraparound skirts, tulle and satin, lace and more. We notice that there are dresses and skirts, midis and minis, lingerie in the equation as well as eyewear in different designs and for different conditions. So which are our favorites?
Eyewear: We notice clear lenses and clearly catty sun protection pieces that beautifully take over the face. While the former creates the illusion of a well-learned individual with a love for knowledge, the latter speaks of a diva, the fashionista who enjoys pink and finds oversized and cat eyed with a sophisticated geometric twist quite desirable. Both looks are astounding and those who require prescription glasses might want to have their frames changed this spring.
Swimwear: Push up, strapless, lacy with stripes. That is exactly what we see when we look at the model in the Blumarine spring 2016 swimwear ensemble, the black lace peeking over the front panel of the panties as well as along the top edge, down to the center, of the bras in question.
Shoes: Strappy shoes with gorgeous heels and a tendency to be worn with tulle and color blocked wraparound skirts in pleats sounds like a pretty good idea. The tulle can have embroidered floral lavishes on it, the wraparound skirt paired with a wraparound blouse, the lower in black and white compared to the coral on top. Those strappy shoes can come in a darker black and silver coloring or a lighter white and blue. Either way, the ensembles look great!
