Nicola Brognano’s Y2K-infused vision for
See, Brognano’s clean slate for the brand isn’t just a parody of decades gone by, nor made just for girls who can recite one-liners from Paris and Nicole’s The Simple Life. Instead, he designs for those who want to express themselves in sugary shades of pink, lime and mango; those who want yanked-up hemlines and butterfly-laden crop tops; those who want to go out-out and look ace doing it.
There was plenty of all that, and then some, as the designer sent out glitter-doused models in barely-there daisy dukes, frilly frocks and liquid satin cargo tracksuits. Trompe-l’œil, patchworked denim harked back to that Britney and J-T red carpet moment and sequined fringed twinsets, glossed with tropical florals, are bound to be the brand’s next big hits. Forget the Y2K Bug, the excitement behind Blumarine is infectious.
