Journey through the clouds with Armani Privé Couture
Giorgio Armani has decided to dream this season, and the result has been his most phantasmagorical high fashion show for many years now.
The new Armani Privé fashion show takes us right in the middle of the clouds, presented in Paris during the Haute Couture.
King Giorgio, who confessed to stop for hours contemplating the sky, took inspiration from the soft shapes and the watercolor colors of the clouds for the spring-summer 2018 collection. From the suits composed of tapered ankle pants and micro jackets in pastel shades mini-balloon dresses that play with delicate transparencies and colorful sequin inserts.
Even the men, impeccable in their velvet tuxedos, ready to accompany their ladies in crystals and feathers long dresses, make their appearance on the catwalk.King George even painted silver silken sports trousers with patches and nebulous stripes. On the other hand, Armani became so keen on these reasons that he had the socks hand-painted by combining them with these cocktail dresses. While the bustiers were cut with rare fluidity, like the evening dresses, made essentially with a single large knot. All the colors were supercoordinated, suffice it to see how Armani wished to realize the earrings and the enamel pendants in the same identical shade of color; and how he even coordinated the dusty pink and blue colors of the fabrics with the models’ make-up. Not always with appreciable results.
