Broadcast on national Italian TV Giorgio Armani’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection was accompanied by a video-documentary that was presented for all the world to see.

 

The 20-minute video titled “Timeless Thoughts”  preceded and introduced the Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 2021 collection with an emotional reflective series of images, memories and archive interviews spanning decades of Armani’s style, before making way to the new collection, broadcasted for the first time on television.

 

 

For the Spring/Summer 2021 collection, silhouettes, for both men and women, are essential, soft, fluid: a blend of pure lines and neutral colours of grey, beige, black, blue.

 

 

Geometric lines and rhythmic patterns are clean and classic in true Armani style.

 

 

What emerges is the personality of a woman and a man who are free from aesthetic constraints, careful instead to express themselves through what they wear.

 

 

Fabrics are both matte and shimmering, while the details come in embroideries, sequins and elegant stitching.

The classic Armani takes on a relaxed and fluid identity, even in the way it is worn. Men are carrying jackets instead of wearing them and rather than classic shirts, polos or relaxed fit jumpers have replaced them.

 

 

Armani appears to be once again influenced by the culture of Japan with a subtle hint of kimono-style jackets and wide-leg trousers.

 

 

The show closed with classic Armani elegance and femininity in its evening wear that would sit perfectly on the red carpet if the world allows.
