Inspired by David Hamilton photographs, Anna Molinari’s lineup for Blugirl was all about bohemian innocence laced with a subtle innuendo. The silhouettes were sweet (drop-waist dresses with tiered ruffled skirts, peasant styles, baby dolls) and the fabrics (broderie anglais, delicate crochet, eyelet, tulle) were pure sugar.

Yet Molinari cut the saccharine with a soft sexuality, working in sheers layered over animal prints. If focused to the point of repetition — nearly identical styles were cycled through an array of pastels — the collection made sense for the contemporary customer, more so than it has in past seasons.
