Giorgio Armani’s subtle charm showcases in Milan
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
In Giorgio Armani’s “Charmani” spring/summer 2017 collection, presented on Friday (September 23), women’s’ charm was a matter of small and subtle details. A charming and sophisticated woman, who attracts the attention with short skirts, veils that do not reveal too much, knitted elements and fringe-like decorations on her clothes. Models, with boldly geometrically-styled bobs walked down the minimalistic, black and shiny catwalk, carrying small clutches and wearing high-heeled sandals, flat slippers or strappy boots. “Charmani shows the lightness of the body, seductively revealing itself, and finding a new balance between discipline and freedom,” read a designer’s note. True to his style, Armani, who celebrated four decades in fashion last year, kept his designs clean cut, rigorous and elegant. But he also hinted at distant cultures, an important element in many of the his collections, introducing sarong skirts, soft fabrics and loose trousers. The palette used by the 82-year old designer, known in the fashion system as “King Giorgio”, is made up of hypnotic and intense blues and purples, at times deadened by beige, grey and red. Unlike past years, when the brand presented both his Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani lines at the Milan shows, the fashion heavy weight decided this year to showcase only the former. The younger more accessible Emporio line will go on show in Paris in September, in a one-off decision made by the designer in July. Milan fashion week catwalks and presentations will end on September 26.
