Giorgio Armani Fall Winter 2012

If we remove the silly asymmetrical gangster hats and the crafty floral corsages, this show is actually quite nice. It has bold colour, which makes for a nice change from Giorgio Armani‘s palette of neutrals, and there are some looks that feel young and fresh (two words I don’t tend to associate with Armani.) On the other hand, the ridiculous amount of tailored Bermuda shorts were scary, as were some of the eighties prints. But as I always say, Armani has his business and his clients, and he doesn’t need to be super trendy to be successful.

I love…

I loathe…

the styling of this show. The gloves, hats, and corsages are all very wrong.

these tacky prints. Are we in the 80's?

another epic styling disaster.
