I have always loved Blumarine ads.  They always tell a little story about the clothes and the model with amazing props that make me dream up scenarios of the kind of person who would embody the lifestyle they project.  There is a personality behind them, whether it’s naughty or whimsical or darkly flirtatious.  Here are some scans of Blumarine ads that I have collected over the years.

And below, my absolute favorite from 2000 – this hangs on my bulletin board.  Scandalous.
