Creative director Nicola Brognano wrote a new intriguing lexicon for Blumarine. For Spring/Summer 2022, he drew inspiration from the pop scene of the years 2000 and the glam, impactful look of its female icons.

Sexy and cheeky, sassy and glam, the collection played on transparencies and bare skin. Colors were loud, fluorescent – to be at the center of attention. For the Blumarine girls, going unnoticed wasn’t an option.
Low-slung cargo pants were meant for evening parties, made in flimsy day-glo chiffon and worn with matching cropped tops baring the midriff. Hot pants were teeny-weeny. Bikinis were for the beach, but they can go straight to the wildest party when beaded, fringed and embroidered with vintage florals. Cropped Bluvi trimmed with raw-hemmed silk roses, or crocheted in recycled polyester, or else collared in repurposed mink can be tossed over the shoulders – with sexy nonchalance. Second-skin low-rise bell bottoms in airbrushed leather look cool when paired with a tight cropped biker jacket. Tiger-printed chiffon slip-dresses were short, asymmetrical, see-through and voluptuous.
Frivolous and free as the butterflies punctuating the collection – embroidered, intarsia-ed, cut-out or appliquéd – the Blumarine girls want to be sexy and seductive, staying always true to themselves.
