Blumarine is a fashion company that was created in 1977 in the town of Carpi in Italy by Anna Molinari and her husband Gianpolo Tarabini. The late designer Franco Moschino also helped the company develop a "look" of edgy romanticism. This look has been continued by Molinari, who remains the company's chief designer.
The name was inspired by Molinari and Tarabini's favorite color and their love for the sea. The Blumarine fashion line debuted in 1980 at the Modit, a small fashion premiere in Milan. In 1981 the fashion line was featured in the first fashion show during fashion week. Both times, it was met with success. During those times, there were only a few items.
Blumarine is a perfect embodiment of a certain Italian woman’s attitude toward fashion: Let the rest of the world worry about sobriety, not her. What's the point in clothes if they don't make her feel decorative?
