Armani Privé Spring Summer 2011

Basically this show consists of a shiny, futuristic Armani collection. The neat tailored jackets and sweeping evening gowns were essentially the same shapes as you’d normally expect, but Armani Privé played with some very interesting fabrics. The only problem is, if you don’t love the shiny, then there won’t be anything for you in this collection. And I can see many of Armani’s couture customers wearing shiny suits to luncheons.

One last note, I wonder how much the shiny leggings cost? Is it possible to make haute couture leggings?

I love…

that fabric. While I wouldn’t wear the “look total” as shown on the catwalk, this is certainly a statement textile.

a very boring strapless dress that has no place on a couture catwalk.

shiny fabrics plus glitzy embellishment in one outfit = too much for Armani.

a ridiculous, ugly silhouette.
