Giorgio Armani

Spring-Summer 2012 - It was a soothing collection, clothes seemed to have the consistency of water and a cooling blue palette led the way. The projected backdrop of water ripples and the sound of crashing waves gave an ambiance of a deep sea dive. Sure enough the silhouettes shimmered down the catwalk in wet-look black trousers. The overside fedora, purporting to be a big accessories trend, came in black, whilst shell like bags rendered aquatic colours: royal blue, cerulean and green ascertained to be prominent on the colour palette. The royal blue two-piece skirt and collarless blazer had a maritime feel to it, but don’t get me wrong, this was not a collection bordering on nautical. It had a sensual oceanic feel to it whereby front slit sequin tops shimmered, and shell-like shapes incarnated bodice dresses. It was rightly so that the dresses at the end such be so pearl like. It was an enchanting collection.
