Perfectly tailored slim-fit jackets, tender-coloured multi-layered mesh and fine embroidery — the collection with over 80 styles has a lot to offer.
On June 2 Paris’s Petit Palais hosted the show of Armani Privé collection which references well-known fashion of late 80’s and early 90’s. This summer’s Paris Fashion Week wasn’t quite rich in terms of A-list celebrities, however Nicole Kidman, Celine Dion, and Zendaya made sure to attend the show made by their favourite designer.
The large collection was split in two sections: the show started off with structured jackets and overcoats with light and wide trousers and followed with tender pastel-coloured dresses. Apart from that the collection could be divided by colour. The opening and closing styles were mostly finished in white and black whereas the dresses shown in between were mint green, powder pink, and purple. By far the most popular patterns were mesh and dots. The latter ranged from tiny embroidery pieces on lower skirts to large discs on dress bottoms and jackets.
Armani paid attention to every little detail of each showcased ensemble: from the plethora of shoes and bags to the makeup. Each model wore a fabric rose on their foreheads. Large pendant bead and crystal earrings have migrated from the previous collection. This trend does not seem to be going away any time soon. The stylists underlined the image of a charming modern woman which became the main character of the collection with an original solution: the brand’s chief makeup artist Linda Cantello used false eyelashes stemming all the way to the points of the long graphite arrows to create a mesmerizing open look.
All ensembles of the new collection by Giorgio Armani who has been a movie aficionado since he was a child are made for the red carpet. More celebrities choose suits for major galas, which means that we might expect to see more meshed and dotted black dresses alongside large-shouldered suits and silk palazzo trousers.
