I Love Surprises

Flipping through style.com , I randomly fell on Anna Molinari's S/S show. Oh!! Oh the surprise!! I had never paid attention to her shows, and I was like "How could I? How did I miss this?? ". The wonderful draping, all the quirky details such as lovely ruffles, satin touches, ruching....

I immediately fell in love with the paradoxical intention : sweet-eroticism, the perfect oxymoron to describe the collection ; an at-first innocent virginal look contrasted with sexy details such as sexually sheer tops or lingerie inspired clothing. Sweet and subtly slutty, in an elegant way. Bingo!

The color palette for this collection was mostly in neutral tones like nude, beige and white (all topped off with wonderfully chosen electric violet lipstick and cool messy after-sex hair), but some black was there too , adding an edgy, strong, powerful-women feel.

One word to describe the collection? Orgasmic.

yessssssss!

what a great post! Like you, I never really thought to look at her collections, but stumbled across it when I was working on my Hye Park blog.

Your descriptions are so spot on! And don't you think whoever was responable for the hair and make up is genius? They have done it so perfectly.

Lovely collection. The clothes seem to float.

The feeling's mutual. When I browsed through style.com looking for graduation dress ideas some time ago I stumbled upon the Anna Molinari collection and fell in love. The short, frilly dresses are divine, aren't they?

It's sort of strange that it isn't Anna Molinari who designs for the label though. She designs for Blumarine. Oh well, maybe it's some complicated ownership problem.
