In their words…
Giorgio Armani Spring / Summer 2012
Milan Fashion Week
The sheen of mother-of-pearl, the iridescence that transforms colours
into watery reflections. Light that becomes shape, shape that is
distilled into the purest lines. The more important the role of the
fabric, the more conceptual the line of the garment. Defined, even
beneath skirts and dresses, by wafer thin trousers with a slight slit
at the front. The jackets, cut on the bias for greater fluidity and
freed from collars and buttons, are fastened at the bust by a tiny hook
concealed within. The dresses come in a range of different lengths,
from knee to ankle, cascading over the body like glistening water.
Invoking an utterly modern elegance that rejoices in gleaming silks and
satins in aqueous and mineral colours nuanced between green and azure.
Culminating in the see-through dress that appears to be covered in
minute drops of water applied to a mesh base. In a game of subtractions
and reversals, precious evening gowns are worn with flat shoes, while
day dresses call for high heels.
