Blumarine FW 2011: Anais Mali & Chanel Iman

Blumarine gets it right every season ... especially for their Fall/Winter collections. The military inspired fashion from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection showcases a monochromatic style to military chic. The black knee-length boots and knuckle rings give each outfit that they are paired with extra coolness. The runway music is always rocking to hot, sexy beats that make a powerful statement especially when you also take notice of the avid use of Victoria's Secret models. You see Victoria's Secret angel Chanel Iman and Victoria's Secret model Anais Mali used repeatedly on their runway as well as many other models associated to Victoria's Secret. You even forget the under-representation of black models in today's fashion world when you watch a Blumarine fashion show because they obviously put effort into fair representation.

Blumarine is one of my favorite design houses because they give you fashion with the perfect balance of diversity, youthfulness and daring sex appeal. I immensely enjoy runway shows such as this one that also cleverly uses rhythmic pop and urban music to heighten the experience and to make a statement. Remixed and flipped ... pop, rock, techno, r&b, hip-hop ... old school, new school ... simple yet stylish ... modern yet classic. Love the way they thread bits of Beyonce & Jay-Z's song "Crazy in Love" throughout the show. Perfect. Blumarine fashion shows are clearly steps ahead of the rest!

Anais Mali and Chanel Iman strut down the Blumarine FW 2011 runway with such confidence and great stage presence. I just get a good feel from the entire cast of Blumarine runway models as if there is a special uniqueness to the brand that embraces everyone with love and acceptance.
