As his second collection as creative director at Blumarine, Nicola Brogano took us back to the early 2000s, an era the designer witnessed and was fascinated by as a young kid. Brogano himself says, “I wanted to telegraph the eccentricity and joie de vivre of the Aughts, touching lightly the ‘trash’ aesthetics of that period”.

Mini skirts, low-waist jeans with statement belts and fur-lined coats were all reminiscent of Paris Hilton’s iconic “The Simple Life” era. A standout piece from the collection was a nude see-through slip dress bedazzled with rhinestones, a signature technique for Brogano.

The glamour-infused show also offered re-iterations of Blumarine’s rose, an element seen in many past shows. Brogano has inserted a new emblem to the brand; the butterfly. Whether seen on chokers, necklaces, encrusted belts, even used as a base shape for tops and dresses, the butterfly was everywhere.

Blumarine’s FW21 collection made us all wish for a simpler life, where Lindsey Lohan’s party scandals were the biggest headlines.
