Giorgio Armani Spring 2013: Get inspired right now with highlights from the Milan Spring 2013 Runways
Forever modern, you can always expect a heavy helping of practical yet original looks from Mr. Armani, ones that although feel familiar in his signature shades of grey, often boast subtle tweaks that make them new again. And all the more justifiable at the cash register to boot.
Just like we saw at Emporio Armani, what really stood out here was a bulk of the collections silvery, metallic hues in a series of layered silhouettes. Calling his latest outing ‘Kaleidoscope,’ each look featured luminous, light catching fabrications with a tried-&-true languid sensuality.
Completely wearable as always, Armani’s vocabulary shone in his choice of radiant finishes and made a case for a more dazzling take on minimalism.
In their words:
VARIATIONS, NUANCES, JUXTAPOSITIONS. THE WORLD OF ARMANI IS MULTIFACETED, AS IF OBSERVED THROUGH A KALEIDOSCOPE THAT SEPARATES, REFRACTS AND ILLUMINATES. IT IS INGENIOUS IN ITS USE OF SHAPES, FABRICS, AND ITS QUALITY OF WORKMANSHIP. SUBTLE YET PROFOUND ALTERATIONS CREATE SOFT, NATURALLY DECONSTRUCTED FITS, RENDERED FLUID THROUGH THE USE OF GOSSAMER SILK AND ORGANZA. LIGHT OVERCOATS AND SHORT, BEAUTIFULLY TAILORED JACKETS FIT LIKE A GLOVE, AND ARE PAIRED WITH FLOWING TROUSERS, MEASURED TO PERFECTION ABOVE THE ANKLE, OR SHORTS THAT SUDDENLY BRING THE LEGS INTO SIGHT. THE LOW SHOES ARE MASCULINE YET TAPERED, THE SILVER HEELS PROVIDING A SHIMMER OF LIGHT WITH EVERY STEP, WHILE THE HIGH SHOES COME WITH RHINESTONE STUDDED HEELS. BLACK, TURQUOISE AND GREY ARE THE MAIN COLORS, ACCOMPANIED BY JADE AND LIGHT BLUE SOFTENED WITH WHITE, BRIGHTENED ALSO IN DAY WEAR BY TRANSPARENT YARNS, CRYSTAL TOUCHES, AND REFLECTIONS. THE SPARKLE IS ACCENTUATED FOR THE EVENING, WITH A CONSTELLATION OF STARS ON A NAVY BLUE BACKGROUND. LIGHTNESS IS KEY, ALWAYS, AND WITH AN ADDED TOUCH OF NONCHALANCE.
