Armani Prive Fall Winter 2012

If I were ever to be a couture customer (let’s be frank here, it is unlikely to happen,) Armani Privé is probably the last of the big couture houses I would shop at. I just can’t relate to his collections, the strong shouldered tailoring, the fancy evening dresses, and the 80′s power woman feel to all his collections isn’t me. Plus, I think they are a bit repetitive, and this season is no different. However, amongst the boring suits and the strapless evening dresses with tailored drapes, there were quite a few beautiful pieces (even ones that I’d wear.) Now, all I need is the money to afford them.

I love…

the chic, sculptured shape of this coat, the degradé top, the velvet trousers, and the white shoes. It’s not groundbreaking, but a very strong look.

the cut of these tops, especially the way the sleeves appear to be one piece.

these gorgeous oversized tops.

that this is the dress I’d like to wear when I finally go to Vegas.

I loathe…

that this tailoring looks like it was in the last 10, 20, or even 30 Armani shows.

these ridiculous masks, Armani shouldn’t try and be edgy.

what looks like a Pierrot outfit for a 65 year old.

    pierrot outfit HAHAHAhah. i think the masks are quite nice, they’re not really edgy since veils are nothing new, and the whole tailoring thing is as boring/repetitive as alber elbaz’s lanvin draping shenanigans. which isn’t necessary boring! still very beautiful and all, they change things/add enough things to still make it a good collection

    Armani keeps getting more boring by the minute. I can’t distinguish anymore between Haute couture and the rest… and he’s SO obsessed with those shiny materials that look very tacky after so many shows. Honestly… MOVE ON!

    I know, those fabrics look hideous. But someone must be buying them! If not, he wouldn’t be showing them every season. Yuck.
