Last night Giorgio Armani presented the Pre-Fall 2020-21 collection at the Armani/Teatro in Milan. The show was part of a series of events that took place throughout the day including the beginning of the Accents of Style exhibition at Armani/Silos and the unveiling of the first every Giorgio Armani High Jewellery collection.
The runway show was a flurry of elegance, as would be expected. In a chic setting, models walked the runway in clean statuesque silhouettes. With a clear influence of the eighties, it seemed Armani looked to the past to bring this collection into the present day.
Trousers suits with oversized blazers were the star of the show. Blazers came in a variety of materials – silks, cotton, velvet. Geometric lines and the occasional flower prints accented the monochrome colour palette which was broken up by flashes of rose-red during the second half of the presentation.
Men’s looks came in warm burgundy tones. Colour coordinating casual suits made for easy wearing. While the smarter looks featured pinstripes and layering.
The show closed what had been an eventful day for the design legend. He had earlier opened the Accents of Style exhibition. The first exhibition of its kind dedicated to the world of Giorgio Armani’s accessories.
And in the morning the first Giorgio Armani High Jewellery collection launched at the Armani Hotel. The collection is characterised by the absolute elegance of its lines and materials and complements the ready-to-wear range, offering a fresh interpretation of authentic and personal luxury.
