Runway Review: An unexpected dose of sexuality and ultra-glam streetsmart fashion made Blumarine a Fall 2012 standout amidst Milan’s moodier collections.
In their words:
Fluid lines and shapes deconstructed by cut-out details. Understated urbanwear in the cold tones of white, hazelnut and dove grey, with glints of silver and platinum.
Textural consistency and plastic volumes, with couture finishes and high-tech layers, create a new daily luxury with three-dimensional effects. Rubber, Perspex, Plexiglass, PVC and nylon in measured layers or strictly minimalist.
Extra-glossy monochromatic surfaces with a liquid effect in mirror and opalescent finishes reinvent ultra-contemporary silhouettes in the laser-cut daywear with activewear details or bon chic like the classic trench coat introduced in shiny python or patent leather, the ‘petit manteaux’ in the laminated version or the cashmere coat lined with technical fabric.
Geometric definition in the black and white of the sculpture dresses in neoprene with asymmetric cuts and 3D reflections. A flash of bright colour, with sparkling touches, in the maxi two-tones Mongolian furs on ribbed sweaters with gleam coatings over ski-texture jersey knit gaiters.
T-shirts with funny mirror prints over the new skinny jeans with light blue, pink and silver metallic glints. Voluptuous evening gowns with all-over decorations of rainbow shining studs and sequins, playing out a positive esprit. Knitwear imitates fabric in the jersey knit total looks with iridescent shiny film or animal print patterns, available in a scratched délavé or brilliant version.[nggallery id=83]
