Blugirl Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2014 Milan
Miss Goody Two Shoes was the main protagonist at Blugirl, the fresh little sister of Blumarine. A myriad of shift dresses, butterfly collars, pleats and little strappy heel shoes - all in 1960's beachy style - had me muttering 'oh golly' to myself.
No sign of a bra strap out of place or the need for a thong, Anna Molinari's spring summer 2014 collection was made for the marrying kind.
Mini dresses, pantsuits, silky jackets and skirt sets shimmered in garden party colors like powder pink, lime and champagne-- all drawing direct inspiration from actress Julie Christie in the 1965 film "Darling".
When the 1963 Italian tune "Sapore di Sale" (Taste of Salt) by Gino Paoli played, it was clear Anna Molinari was feeling a bit nostalgic for the iconic days of Italy's economic and cinematic boom.
The tempo intensified a bit when the leopard print, metallic brocade and whimsical flower power prints made their debut, reminding me never to judge a book by its cover.
