Armani pairs stern tailoring with vibrant colors for Paris show
PARIS (Reuters) – Italian designer Giorgio Armani kept faith with his signature stern tailoring for the haute couture collection he unveiled on Tuesday in Paris – but he added a dash of color.
In keeping with the buttoned-down look of the show, it was held in a former bank building, a stark contrast to the whimsical herb garden recreated for the Chanel show a few hours earlier.
For his Armani Prive haute couture brand, the designer showed trouser suits and dresses that were all about straight lines and boxy shapes – accentuated by the angular hairstyles of the models on the runway.
But the sober, structured lines were leavened by lavish silk fabrics, and vibrant colors; magenta paired with cobalt blue was a recurring theme.
For the tailoring, there was at least one concession to whimsy: an otherwise straitlaced dress that featured a large diaphanous petal that sprung out of the belt and covered the front of the dress all the way up to the model’s face.
