BLUMARINE CELEBRATES ITS FIRST 40TH ANNIVERSARY: then we remember Anna Molinari through her collaboration with TIM WALKER.

BLUMARINE CELEBRATES ITS FIRST 40TH ANNIVERSARY: then we remember Anna Molinari through her collaboration with TIM WALKER.

Tim Walker for creating a feminine, romantic and sensual world.

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.

TIM WALKER for BLUMARINE and VALENTINO for creating imaginary worlds..


                 Tim Walker

The fashion week in Milan is starting. Poker of my favorite Italian designers is composed of Blumarine, Antonio Marras, Valentino and Alberta Ferretti. All of these designers have as a common passion for a romantic and poetic style at the same time with elegance.

Artistic elements that you can in the photographs of the GREAT TIM WALKER, one of my favourite of all times. English man, one of the most talented photographers in the last few years, Tim Walker in every picture tells a great story, evokes dreamscapes and fairy-tale.

Born in 1970 ,Tim Walker lives in London. He approaches the world of photography before attending college, working to the archive of Cecil Beaton at the Condé Nast Library in London.  He graduated at Exeter College of Art in 1994 and worked as a photographer’s assistant in London before moving to New York to attend full-time photographer Richard Avedon. Once back in England he devoted himself to portraiture and documentary work, until you arrive at Vogue, where he made his first service at the age of 25.

Walker staged his first major exhibition at the Design Museum, London in 2008. This coincided with the release of his book ‘PICTURES’ published by teNeues. In 2010 Walker’s first short film, The Lost Explorer (BBC Films, 2010) was premiered at Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland.

Now he  regularly shoots for Vogue, WMagazine and Love Magazine. Each shot is a meticulous and careful research of scenography, set design and props. He collaborated with the set designer SHONA HEATH  one of Britain’s leading creative directors and set designers, whose prolific work in fashion imagery has, for the last 10 years, encompassed disciplines such as photography, film making and fine art.

It is no coincidence that Tim Walker collaborated to create advertising campaigns of two of my favorite designers: Valentino and Blumarine his early career. Then I show you pictures about these campaigns.
