Giorgio Armani closes the fashion week in Milan with a show without music, thus focusing on what is unfortunately happening to the Ukrainian people.
because we cannot ignore the tragedy around us
His story is, as always, of timeless elegance but this takes a back seat, when Armani chooses to deprive the catwalk of the soundtrack, to immerse ourselves in the awareness of what is going on inside us in these difficult days. and surreal, thinking that all this beauty could be annihilated.
Not a call to order but a touching life lesson from a great master who, once again, is confirmed in perfect harmony with his style, made up of fluid and elongated silhouettes that alternate with the rigor of the constructions.
An elegance made up of subtractions is staged, which puts the person at the center and enhances his character, like the portrait painted by a painter who observes reality through the filter of his own imagination, without however letting the latter impose itself on the subject.
There is a new glamor full of flashes, which we had already seen in the Emporio Armani collection, taken up here in the brilliant shades that dance on the surfaces of the fabrics and in the abstract decorations to recall Art Deco, a movement very dear to Giorgio Armani.
Jackets and trousers draw clear-cut figures, while touches of faux fur and velvet pervade the exits, signs of an intimate and personal light that extends from day to night.
In accessories, the Armani woman chooses only velvet, from bags to boots, as high as socks, to discover but at the same time cover her legs in a seductive way.
The same flashes touch the male wardrobe, in which classicism and a soft formality prevail, starting from the jackets to be combined with fluid trousers in the name of a comfortable tailoring, completed by the immaculate shirt and tie.
The fabrics are refined, from the aforementioned velvets to cashmere, in a palette that moves from deep blue to dense gray, softening into black.
A few touches of color, such as green, to embellish a wardrobe full of luxury, which is also found in the accessories, from shoes to bags with an architectural design.
