Blumarine Catwalk Fashion Show Milan SS2012
It seems like cropped tops are going to be the hit of next summer. We spotted them in New York, London and now in Milan as well. At Blumarine they came in many versions; off shoulder, bandeau and biker jacket. Combined with shorts and skirts there was a lot of skin on show.
But maybe those items are exactly what you want during a hot summer. Besides there was enough to choose from for the more ‘formal’ summer events. Like cute black tea dresses with neon floral prints. Or matchy matchy (pajama) looks with colorful floral patterns on them.
Anna Molinari even showed a bit of a kinky side during the end of the show when she presented full black looks with crocodile leather, sequins and feathers. She could have held back a bit on the styling side, since all looks were a bit too much of everything. Those enormous floral accessories seemed a little childish too. Big earrings are one of the many trends for SS2012, but these ones just felt wrong.
But Molinari did show versatility. So if you’re not a big fan of the dark fetish theme, you might just fall in love with some of the bright, flirty fifties-style dresses.
