For fall, Anna Molinari continued to work toward reviving the softer, prettier romance of Blumarine’s heyday, and while there were some appealing looks in this lineup, it’s still a work in progress.

In the show notes, Molinari dished out some quirky musings like “Dress in a Rose” and “Nest in a Knit.” It was a feel-good notion, and some pieces, like a blush shearling biker jacket and a voluminous cashmere coat, served it well. But sequined string dresses, as well as the floral-patterned pouf miniskirts in the shape of a rose, weren’t flattering.

While the men’s-wear influences, including a strong-shouldered herringbone pantsuit and a chic Prince of Wales cape embellished with a Moorish motif, didn’t gel with the rest of the lineup, they were, nonetheless, show highlights.
