Couture week continued in Paris yesterday as Giorgio Armani presented his Armani Prive line. As we're in the midst of award season, you can almost guarantee that one of these gowns will make a red carpet appearance over the next few weeks. Who can forget Angelina Jolie's tight strapless number at the 2009 BAFTAs which was hot off the catwalk?
This Spring the collection was two tone with creations ranging from trouser suits to dramatic ball gowns. As always, the beauty of these designs lay in the details like the asymmetric hemlines, bubble capes, and crescent moon applique. The whole collection was based on the moon, he explained, "I always need a hook to get into a collection, and that was it—thinking about something romantic and dreamy, far away from our everyday life. Something less harsh." That idea ties in nicely with couture and in this line it was present in luminescent fabrics, shapes of dresses and jackets and embroidery.
