An aristo-rebel vibe ran through Anna Molinari’s collection for Blumarine, as the designer ditched her trademark romanticism for a glamorous wardrobe of furs and sparkly eveningwear inspired by Warhol muse Baby Jane Holzer.
Outerwear ran from a maxi cardigan in downy lilac mink to a brown-and-black chevron-patterned leather coat with a swathe of glossy black fox fur running down the front. Thigh-grazing party dresses came in bristly fil coupé, draped Lurex, ombré silk and floral-print chain mail.
Molinari pitched mini versus maxi, dense fabrics against light. A chunky black sweater was topped with a crisp organza short robe, as if the wearer had dressed in a hurry and forgotten her skirt. Meanwhile, a zip-up brown fox fur jacket was nonchalantly slung over a gold sun-pleated maxiskirt.
As models trooped by in their patent leather ankle boots, baby pink soles reflected on the mirrored catwalk, their age of innocence seemed long gone.
