Blumarine Fall 2012 Runway Review

With a Blumarine collection, there are certain things you can expect: animal prints, sequins, and bold prints galore, but this season was over the top, even for Blumarine. The older label in the Anna Molinary-owned Blufin family, Blumarine has nurtured and developed a market of fans that flock to its sequined t-shirts and outlandish prints. This season, we saw parallels to the Blugirl collection with the first set of five fluorescent coats, shown over all white, and the show bunny styling that kicked up from there.

An all-white section quickly transitioned into a lineup of metallic puffers, off-white outerwear, and shades of grey. From there, we stopped in briefly with the Jetsons, for a spacey silver trench, then moved on to the Flintstones with a section of head to toe leopard. If it sounds ridiculous, that’s because it was; but the Blumarine customer isn’t worried about trends like minimalism and utilitarianism, they’re worried about shining as bright as they can, and shine they will in this collection.
