A show like the gentle sound of the sea: old master Giorgio Armani celebrated a festival of colors in Milan.
Milan – A cheer for Mediterranean elegance: This is how Giorgio Armani presented himself on Saturday evening at Milan Fashion Week, which will present trends for the spring / summer 2022 season until Monday. When the 87-year-old designer stepped onto the catwalk at the end of the show, the audience rose from their seats for the final applause.
After more than 20 years, Armani had returned to the place where he celebrated his greatest successes: the small theater in his downtown palazzo in Milan. “I wanted an intimate atmosphere so that the guests could come as close as possible to the models and almost touch them,” he said, explaining the move from his monumental theater in the south of the city, where his shows usually take place.
As gentle as the waves of the sea
The classic Armani codes, mixed with influences that nomads might have collected on their tours – this is how the designer characterizes his new women’s collection. The waves of the sea billowed gently in the background of the catwalk, fittingly the first theme had a maritime touch: with blue and white combinations of trousers with wide, flowing legs tamed at ankle height to different blazer variants.
Armani then increases this type of trousers in shapes that have so much volume that they look like a skirt. Narrower versions, on the other hand, are worn under a dress or a tunic. Tops are available in many ornate finishes.
Armani laid out his patterns sometimes subtle, sometimes lush, showing floral and abstract motifs. He sprinkled strong accents from the red and lilac palette into his color classics dark blue and gray. dpa
