MILAN--Anna Molinari moved away from her colorful Capri prints for Blumarine's Fall 2011 runway collection. Instead, she focused on glossy basics. In the first group of looks, there was lots of double faced wool and knits in navy, grey, and black. (Each group entered the stage together and then began walking one after another.) The second introduced a pop of primary and secondary colors, done in rich, saturated hues. Finally, the Italian designer went back to her roots, with a bit of sexy black lace.
Out of everything, we liked the knit trousers best, mostly because they looked flattering and insanely comfortable. Oh, and it was nice to see Coco, Stam, Chanel, et al. together on the runway.
