Aqua and Mineral Blue by Giorgio Armani


Paris Fashion Week is running, and before continuing my Paris Fashion  Week-editorials (started on Saturday with 'PFW | Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2012' collection), I just wanted to present you this beautiful Spring/Summer 2012 collection by Giorgio Armani. Enjoy the Giorgio Armani Fashion Show 2012 at the end of this post! LoL, Andrea

If further proof was needed of what Armani has given to women of the world over the years, it occured a few minutes into his show. The theme aqua, or perhaps more accurately, what happens to aqua when moonlight hits it and causes all sorts of ripples and reflections. In short, we're talking silvery blues and greens, a touch of mother-of-pearl, and plenty of silks and satins, some printed to look like marble and wirled with blossoms. all of which were utilized for his latest idea of the Armani silhouette: a longer-length jacket set with small shoulders, before flaring out of Empire-style and then finishing at the hips, and worn with a new pant shape, which is cut with a slight kick to above a side-slit ankle.

Located among his variations on those were two superchic suits, one dark pearl gray, the other a marine blue. Both were cut with the skill and refinement that you can achieve only if you've been manipulating fabric for five decades and counting, and they moved with the kind of sinuosity you'd normally associate with slippery little nothings of lingerie. The jacket was cut on the bias, draped across the body with the merest suggestion of a closure, the skirt cut too on the bias, the slightest hint of a dip in the hem.

Later, as a complete contrast, Armani offered another twosome that felt just right: Peplum tops and the aforementioned cropped trouser, in color combinations of mineral blue and gray, a look perfectly pitched between sharp and urban, soft and sensual. He then went on to abbreviate trousers even further, finishing them at the knee and slipping them under the likes of a couple of killer crystal-encrusted short evening dresses with décolletés so deep they'd make a grown man blush.

Uber elegante...Absolute Armani...softly sensual & chic...the silver sheen is illuminous...The embellished jackets & self print tops in silk satin are refined creativity. The knee length dresses are luxe & feminine. My fave are the cropped silk pants, which are so parisien & trendy.
