Giorgio Armani Spring Summer 2012

Most designers will design an item, say a dress, and offer it in three different colours when they sell the collection, but only show one version on the catwalk. Giorgio Armani does not do this, he puts every single version on the catwalk, which means we get very long, repetitive catwalk shows. This collection had all of the prerequisite iridescent fabrics and boring tailoring I don’t like, but the highlights were definitely Armani’s new trouser cut (slim, cropped, but sits on the natural waist.) I also liked some of the evening pieces, but then again, some of them were pretty lame too.

I love…

all the shiny black cropped pants in this show. They are a nice shape and I like the slits on the leg. I could see this being a trend for next summer.

this pretty little top.

a great way to do evening: a beaded cardigan, a full skirt, and a pair of shiny trousers.

I loathe…

a tent shaped strapless top with that strange triangular wrap neckline.

a very plain looking suit in an extremely dull colour.

that the strapless neckline rises so high on these dresses.
