Blumarine has presented a collection that embodies the essence of the modern-day Joan of Arc - a fearless warrior challenging the norms of her time. The set feels as adorned with mystical garden spells and potions created with lichens and moss, and the scent of magical herbs fills the air.
The Blumarine warrior is portrayed as wearing armor-like tiny clothing that represents her strength and determination at being cool. Micro shearling jackets with leather straps, metallic knitted tops that resemble medieval vests, and skinny jeans with oversized belts all contribute to this powerful image. The finale dress is a stunning super sexy piece, adorned with red feathers that fly through the flames along the magical path, a fitting end to a show that celebrates the strength of the Blumarine feminine.
From start to finish, the collection is filled with powerful pieces that are both Lotta-stylish and Volkova-empowering, making a statement about the strength of feminine power. The models who walk the runway exude confidence and self-assurance.
The collection has successfully blended traditional and contemporary elements, creating a timeless and versatile collection. Metallic knitted tops and skinny jeans paired with oversized belts aka mini skirts give a nod to medieval times, while the micro shearling jackets with leather straps add a modern touch. The use of red feathers throughout the collection symbolizes the strength and resilience of the Blumarine woman, who stands tall in the face of adversity. Or are those drops of blood?
As we at RED-EYE do love magic so much, we created for the Blumarine FW23-24 show an immersive editorial catwalk review where fashion enthusiasts can explore the collection in the metaverse. The ultimate spell cast by RED-EYE transports us to a dimension beyond reality, where we can experience the beauty of the collection in a new experimental way.
"Fire walk with me" as Laura Palmer would have said... the Twin Peaks supernatural feeling is crossing several shows this season, from fendi to Blumarine. In the RED-EYE runway immersive review we walk through the magical garden and marvel at the intricate details of the garments. The room allows us to connect with the collection on a deeper antigravitational level, providing a new dimension of inspiration for our community of creators.
The metaverse provides a new level of creative freedom where identity and inclusivity become more real than reality. This new dimension offers a promise of a future where there will be no more "caccia alle streghe" or witch hunts. We can hope for a world where creativity and diversity are celebrated, and where fashion is a tool for self-expression and empowerment.
The Blumarine FW23-24 show and the immersive room created by RED-EYE provide a powerful and inspiring experience for fashion enthusiasts and web3 creators. The collection celebrates the strength of the modern-day warrior fighting for creative freedom and total self-expression, while the metaverse provides a glimpse of a future where diversity and inclusivity reign supreme.
