During this season of Milan Fashion Week, the designers are focusing less on the trends and more on the fluidity of shapes, freedom of fabrics and how the pieces move on the body.
For Giorgio Armani SS19 collection, the designer channeled his emotions of summer into colours and shapes that offered a different perspective from each angle. There is beauty in intricacy of his work like the tiered strapless dress with a perplex bodice, multi-hue trousers that had a sheer element at the bottoms and fringed dresses that echoed the movement of the water.
He kept the shapes light and elongated offering a slender way of enveloping the body while complimenting them by working with shades of metallic grey, silky pastels, soft blue with bold splashes of bright pink – try not to fall in love the fuchsia full skirt with drawstrings just below the hips.
No Giorgio Armani collection would be complete without neatly crafted jackets and trousers which for SS19 also have a looser silhouette. For summer nights, slip into one of the gowns that’s been crossed with pleats and embroideries and style with a small mesh bag.
His triumph was in his elegant use of transparency and how the fabrics caught the light to give them a whole new life with every step. Ever changing as the tides, these pieces capture the Armani woman today, a woman who is as vulnerable as a drop, and as strong as the crashing waves that follow.
