BLUMARINE CELEBRATES ITS FIRST 40TH ANNIVERSARY: then we remember Anna Molinari through her collaboration with TIM WALKER.
I was a young girl and I dreamed in front the advertising campaigns of Tim Walker for Blumarine.
Blumarine this year celebrates its first 40th anniversary with the volume ANNA MOLINARI, BLUMARINE, narrating the history of Anna Molinari and the Blumarine brand. Through a selection of images shot by charismatic photographers of the likes of Helmut Newton, Tim Walker and Craig McDean, fashion editor such as Manuela Pavesi and art director as M/M Paris, some keywords are analysed to extensively explain the elements of Blumarine’s style, edited by Maria Luisa Frisa.
Tim Walker’s pictures are obviously my favorite. I think the photographer has represented Blumarine’s worl wirh a style that is feminine, romantic and sensual, adjectives used by the brand right from the early years of its creation.
It’s no coincidence that the rose is the symbol of the fashion designer.
Blumarine has become synonymous with fashion created for the modern woman, characterized by a sensual femininity and timeless romanticism, with a vibrant edge. Anna Molinari, known as “the queen of roses” because of her love for the flower.
Growth and success on the market have been simultaneous with ongoing development of the brand, increasingly apparent in the latest collections with a higher profile and products tending increasingly towards total luxury and with a development of an entire range of accessories as an addition to the rest of the fashion collection, creating a complete range.
Blumarine was established by Anna Molinari and Gianpaolo Tarabini in 1977, in the town of Carpi, in the province of Modena. The name was inspired by the couple’s favourite colour and their love of the sea. In 1980 they made their first appearance at Modit in Milan. where Blumarine was named Designer of the Year, which led to their first show at Milan Fashion week the following year.
The 1986 Milan Fashion Week saw the first collection wholly designed by Anna Molinari.
Then a review of the various campaigns that Tim Walker has created for the designer.
