Giorgio Armani’s Spring/Summer 2022 womenswear collection “Métissage” debuted at Milan Fashion Week on 25th September 2022.


After more than twenty years the designer returned to present his collection at Via Borgonuovo 21, in the historic theatre that has been the backdrop for some memorable fashion shows. This show was a key moment in returning to life as we know it for the designer who was the first to cancel his runway show in 2020 when the pandemic first hit.



The collection captures the uplifting, joyous mood we are all looking for with a celebration of colour and lightness.



The show notes read: “A métissage of exquisitely Armanian tropes mixed with nomadic scents, decorations and colours that seem to have been gathered during a journey or a trip to be reinterpreted with an urban feel.”



Light colours and light materials create an overall feeling of weightlessness and freedom, with soft floaty fabrics and easy-to-wear cuts and styles this was a collection that will transform any women’s wardrobe.



The collection begins with a colour palette of blue and white that’s somewhat nautical in its appearance. Flashes of res start to add some boldness as the colour is the first to be introduced. Eventually, colours are featured throughout, but mostly in soft pastel tones that complement the lightness of the materials. There is a lot of movement in the looks as the materials catch the air.



Soft and elongated jackets, some with knotted closures; trousers as wide as skirts, or with tapered volumes; little tops, and tunics create a sense of understated elegance, while pure jackets, flowing trousers and long floaty skirts offer a relaxed feel to summer dressing.



Colours explode in a juxtaposition of reds and purples, and plays of spontaneous layerings offering an unexpected moment.


Eveningwear is a feast of light: luminous, weightless gowns that barely skim the body, made of layers of tulle that create melting, surprising, infinitely soft nuances of colour.


Accessories add a note of bold, streamlined design: handbags with rounded shapes, or small bags with curved handles, and then large totes and crocheted shoulder bags.


Two elements are present throughout each look: knotted headscarves or crocheted caps, while shoes are flat with open-toes or laced around the feet.
