Blumarine waxes poetic this season with breezy ensembles that evoke images of exotic travel, desert heat and a longing for explorations. Its collection derives from lyrical images of workers, interiors, landscapes, botanicals and a love of roses.
Easy forms are charged with a carnal yet thoughtful sensuality. The dry environment and the nomadic feel suggest a need for realness and a quest for simplicity. Surfaces get textural and tactile, opposing the delicate and the sturdy. Blouses are paired with round skirts, and flounces appear throughout.
Passion bursts suddenly, in tropical flowers blooming as woodcut prints or embroideries. Colours range from pure white and pinks, natural straw and raffia, black and chocolate brown. The collection’s sense of physicality, presence and mystery depicts a scene of rebellious romanticism.
