Giorgio Armani Takes Us on a Safari Through the Urban Jungle
Giorgio Armani is a master of his art, and the runway show today was just another manifestation of that. The designer, who turned 80 this year, has spent at least half of his life staging runway shows, so it came as no surprise that Armani's offering for Spring 2015 was as clear and concise as it could have been. It was a safari theme, and that translated beautifully via a mix of animal prints including cheetah, python, and zebra.
The first part of the show stuck to earthy tones of beige and brown, with linen pants catering to the day-wear customer. Armani then took his safari into the urban jungle by adding gray and black to the color palette for a city vibe. Fringes, chiffon, and silk provided movement to an otherwise tailored collection. After all, tailoring is Armani's trademark, and this is the brand that will provide George Clooney with a suit for his wedding day. For the grand finale, Armani surprised with plenty of sparkle on brocade baby-doll dresses, layered over sheer pants.
