Art Deco Style – Influenced by the art deco movement, Blumarine designer Anna Molinari has created a capsule collection featuring graphic prints in black, beige and white tones. The line includes clothing pieces ranging from silk printed blouses to knitwear and long gowns. The Italian brand’s “Art Deco” collection is in Blumarine boutiques worldwide starting this month.
Blumarine’s Take on Glamour – For spring 2014, Blumarine gets dreamy with an outing of ultra-feminine looks embellished with flowers and butterflies. The first half of the collection is almost exclusively in white and nude illuminated by gilded jacquard patterns. Then the catwalk transforms into less romance and more sensuality with form-fitting dresses adorned with sequins and feathers. More androgynous looks take shape in the form of boxy blazers and tapered trousers worn with ankle boots. Never one to shy away from glamour, the show closes with rhinestones and feathers in a nod to fifties glamour and Las Vegas showgirls.
Flowers in Fall – For the fall-winter season, Blumarine designer Anna Molinari introduces the “Abstract Flower” capsule collection. The line features items with a black and white flower pattern. Focusing on daywear, the range consists of a fifties-style dress with lace inserts, classic pencil dress, flared skirt and minimal overcoat. The Abstract Flower collection is available in boutiques this month.
The Seduction of Candice – Blumarine’s fall 2013 campaign enlists the always stunning Candice Swanepoel. Dressed in the autumn collection’s oriental prints and eastern inspired shapes, the South African model sports a dark hairdo to go along with the romantic setting. Swedish fashion photographer Camilla Akrans was charged with shooting the new advertisements, featuring Candice posing sensuously against a floral tapestry. See the official campaign film here.

Candice’s Dark Side – After showing up as a platinum blonde at a recent event, Candice Swanepoel goes to the other side of the spectrum with brunette tresses for Blumarine’s fall 2013 campaign film. In the video, the South African beauty works it in the label’s eastern inspired designs. The autumn advertisements were shot by Swedish photographer Camilla Akrans. According to Blumarine designer Anna Molinari, “Candice perfectly embodies my idea of the Blumarine woman.”
Karolina in Blumarine – Karolina Kurkova stepped out to the “For the Love of Cinema” celebration at the IWC and Tribeca Film Festival yesterday, wearing a matching jacket and skirt from Blumarine’s fall 2013 collection. The Czech beauty paired the look with a metallic bag and black heels.
Enchanting Beauty – Anna Selezneva is a romantic vision in the spring 2013 campaign from Italian label Blumarine. Captured by Camilla Akrans, Anna enchants in divine maxi dresses, lightweight sweaters and sparkling, pastel gowns. Surrounded by cherry blossoms and blue skies, the blonde is sensual yet elegant.
Young Love – Blumarine’s latest fragrance, Innamorata, taps leading American model Alyssa Miller (d’management group) for its print campaign. Entering the ranks of high fashion, Alyssa poses in front of Michelangelo di Battista’s lens as she joins her lover on the back of a bike in the romantic image.
Blumarine’s Playful Fall – For fall 2012, Blumarine showcased a collection of over the top glamour with colorful fur coats, wild animal prints and techno silver fabrics. Opening the show with sexy ski bunny coats, designer Anna Molinari made sure the autumn season was a playful one by featuring oversize bags that looked like poms poms more than actual accessories. As the show progressed, some sparkle was added in the form of sequin embellished tops, pants and chunky jewelry. Always unapologetic with the amount of excess and glamour, Blumarine brought a sense of carefree style to the upcoming season.
