For his second effort at Blumarine, creative director Nicola Brognano – he graduated from Milan’s Marangoni Fashion School and appointed Blumarine’s creative director in late 2019 – resurrected the early 2000s camp aesthetic that the designer, who just turned 30, witnessed as a little kid.

Inspired by Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie in ‘’The Simple Life’’ – a reality show set in a ranch in Arkansas – but as well by Britney Spears and the bold trends of the early 2000s, the collection was a flirty and sexy line of nostalgia.
Forget Blumarine’s flirty romanticism of yore. ‘’My Blumarine is more dirty, bitchy, sexier’’, Brognano said.
The Blumarine Fall/Winter 2021 collection was woven with 2000s It-Girl inspiration throughout. Bold blues and shades of hot pink were the core of the color palette, while vivid shades of canary yellow and muted beige complemented the intense hues. Texture was at the mercy of creative director Nicola Brognano, who played with thick, fuzzy fur and contrasted it with delicate, sheer embellished fabric, mixing silhouettes and drapery to find a fine balance between a gala evening and a club evening, dressed up and dressed down.
Nostalgic Blumarine fans weren’t neglected either; the everlasting roses motif was abundantly represented, digitally abstracted in liquid watercolor prints or knitted in sprouting 3D rosettes on cropped wool sweaters paired with matching briefs. Denims were totally Britney – low-slung, extra tight, bell-bottomed, and studded with crystals. Bare midriffs also made a comeback.
