Giorgio Armani Spring Summer 2013

After the marathon Dolce & Gabbana show, which was LONG but at least very beautiful, I dreaded looking at Giorgio Armani, which was also quite the marathon show. I am beginning to wonder why I bother to review this collection, as it would be easier to copy and paste my reviews from the a year ago, instead of creating fresh content. These collections are essentially the same season after season. But I guess someone has to dress the women who aren’t wearing Versace’s slut wear or Dolce & Gabbana’s vibrant prints. So if you are in the market for old lady tailoring, luxury pajamas, or crinkly and iridescent fabrics, then Armani is the man for you.

I love…
Sadly, nothing. Not even a few of the separates. There were some decent outfits, but nothing to really love.

I loathe…

silky, iridescent pajamas as daywear.

the most unflattering cut of trousers, ever.

skirts over trousers. And those stupid fascinators.

when the model looks 20 pounds heavier than she is. Shouldn’t that raise the alarm?

a double whammy of crinkly, badly cut jackets. These are horrible!

    Those fascinators look like a wet washcloth placed on their heads.

    Why does Armani suck so bad nowadays?

    Good question, wish I could answer it…

    I just don’t get who the target demographic is with this kind of clothing. Surely no one under the age of 55 would find it appealing. Liza Minnelli could surely rock it!

    Yes, for this stuff, no one under the age of 55. Although my Mom is over 55 and she wouldn’t wear this. I am presuming most of his business comes from perfume, underwear, accessories, and the Emporio/Exchange brands. I also think he probably does a killer business in classic men’s suits (he is good at those) and possible classic women’s suits (not the gross ones we saw on the catwalk, but more conservative ones) as those too could appeal to women under the age of 55 who dress very conservatively for work.
