Giorgio Armani Fall Winter 2013

I wanted to cry when I saw the first look of the Giorgio Armani show (see my first loathe) and then looked at the bottom of the page to see it was look one of eighty five! I keep threatening to stop reviewing Armani because his shows are so long, boring, and repetitive. I don’t know why I don’t follow through with my threat. This had the usual boring suits, but this time they seemed particularly bad. Most had unflattering cuts, waists a bit too high, pants a bit too wide, and shoulders a bit too narrow. It all felt very wrong, in particular, the hideous hats which seem to have become his signature. He is supposed to be incredible at tailoring, why can’t he just send fourty perfect suits down the runway?

I love…

The idea of a fabulous Italian brand who makes beautiful, classic tailoring and elegant gowns. But this is not Giorgio Armani fall winter 2013.

I loathe…

boring suits and bad hats, that is what Giorgio Armani is essentially about these days.

the sporty version of an Armani suit. Fail.

an oddly cut jacket and really, really unattractive pants.
