(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: Italian designer Anna Molinari draws inspiration from an eclectic British style for her Blugirl 2013-14 Autumn/Winter womenswear collection at Milan Fashion Week on Thursday (February 21). The designer mixed masculine and feminine for a sporty girl, who likes to dress according to her mood.
The classic kilts were coupled with leopard print waistcoats or chiffon shirts in polka dots, adding an unconventional touch to the collection. Knee-length skirts were worn over English leather ankle boots, coupled with short grey socks. Coats and jackets came in wool cloth, tartan and mohair-effect fabric.
For the evening, models wore ultra-thin, straight gowns in lace, chiffon and devore velvet, with golden dragon motifs in a tribute to China. Blugirl's romantic attitude was visible in the landmark rose prints as well as in embroidered white swans, the new symbol of the collection. Accessories included shoulder bags in leopard print and golden dragon necklaces.
