Armani Prive couture Autumn/Winter 2011

10 Jul

A visual feast for the eyes, Armani’s Prive collection for AW11 is perfection. Mr Armani has made a triumphant return to Earth after his shimmering, gemstone-inspired space-age Spring couture collection. Clearly inspired by the Orient, the fusion of traditional Japanese elements is subtle and results in a beautiful, elegant collection without straying onto theatrical, costume territory. I’m looking forward to seeing these looks on the awards circuit. 




Armani Prive Spring/Summer 2011

26 Jan

Welcome to the future, courtesy of Mr Armani. To say this collection is at the other end of the spectrum from the old world glamour of the Fall 2010 Prive collection is a bit of an understatement, try another planet in the year 2050. Clearly inspired by all things futuristic and intergalactic, I think the collection will come as a bit of a shock to some. I’m amazed by the beautiful, molten metal fabrics, dazzled by the cutaway dresses exposing glittery embellished fabric and seriously coveting those Philip Treacy saucer hats. I can’t see many red carpet dresses though.
