Il Re, Mr. Giorgio Armani, did it again! His Show, his collection was the best what we saw on the Milan’s catwalks during Milan Fashion Week. It is a Happening!
Giorgio Armani continued his 40th-anniversary festivities yesterday afternoon ( 28.09.2015) with a press conference and lunch in honor of his new self-titled book of family photographs and personal remembrances. The book he said, answering questions from a large audience, gathered after his catwalk Spring Summer 16 show, inside the slick concrete lined Armani headquarters in Milan (to this day he proudly prefers to converse in his mother tongue, despite a global empire worth £5 billion), were “the pulses, the remembrances of my past,“ the designer elucidated. For those born in the 90ies, it is hard to comprehend what Armani brought to fashion 40 years ago. „I started my own revolution,“ he said. „A subtle one but also very strong. I changed the rules of fashion from the previous 20, 30 years,“ he continued. „I showed that you could wear a flat shoe with evening wear; I added softness to men’s clothes. And I envisaged that women could dress like men but with great femininity.“
And we saw this yesterday, during the Show.Elegant, chic daywear and evening dresses, . that was the Giorgio Armani spring/summer 2016 is about. That’s why Armani is still the best,that’s why we love him and his design.
All the elements that have made his name synonymous with discrete elegance were there in his show yesterday ( if you didn’t see the live Streaming, i advice to find the full Show on youtube). There was a play on silhouette, the body softened, disguised and also revealed by cleverly juxtaposed fabrics, layered one over the other. Such as ribbed organza trousers worn under suit jackets or silk dresses; a classic white work shirt was re-invented as a loose silk shirt dress, with billowing pockets worn over a sheer black silk slip. There was also a playful floral jumpsuit in bright vermillion, while crisp shorts or capacious trousers were matched with bolero jackets.
Gems cascaded down pretty party dresses, danced across bodices in red, pink, emerald and white crystal or were bunched together in sparkling orbs. Skirts were voluminous, and above the knee, in midnight blue organza, gathered and ruched at the waist. The customers will again invest in his tailoring next summer. There was something for every women! Wear Armani , that what every woman are dreaming for.
