Literalism at Blumarine

Enemies of rotten diction and poor naming will appreciate that Anna Molinari went for literalism in Blumarine's Spring 2009 collection which was awash is soft, watery ocean hues. Sandy beiges, spots of deep blue, and aquamarine gave the catwalk a serene beachy quality. Even the floral water colors had a kind of blue lagoon feel to them.

But it wasn't just the color pallete that had us congratulating Molinari for being so upfront, the loose, flowing, and floating gowns that finished the show simply begged to be shot under water in every other photographer's favorite high fashion look. Is it really better under the sea?
