Giorgio Armani catwalk show report A/W 2015 in Milan
As the final morning of Milan Fashion Week arrived, guests at Giorgio Armani’s show were surprised to see no notes describing the collection on their seats. It seemed that the designer, who celebrates 40 years in the industry this year, wanted the guests to come to their own conclusions about the collection.
With a colour palette ranging from the icy blues, greys and black to sugary pink, the collection consisting of over 80 magnificent pieces showcased the designer’s vast knowledge of cuts and fabric. Androgynous clothing was once again found in abundance. We got to see lots of trousers starting from the initial one adorned with brush-strokes to the neatly tailored cropped tuxedo pants.
What caught our eye were the ones with a neatly wrapped around skirt on the waist. The illusion of a skirt worn over pants was broken as one realised that it was one single piece. Now that is something we hope catches on soon.
These skirt-trousers were paired with furry, cropped, sequinned jackets, pretty blouses decorated with brush strokes. Jackets were clearly the heroes of the evening. Dress coats, boxy, cropped and fitted, furry and knitted jackets were aplenty. Peter pan collars paired with almost every piece brought a touch of femininity to the otherwise androgynous collection. Super-sized fringed shawls were draped around the models to compliment the outfits.
Evening wear came in last; beaded and pleated gowns rounded off a thought-out collection. This is certainly not the last feather in the designer’s cap.
