The ode to the Armani nude
"I wanted a collection that was a tribute to women, to their beauty," said the designer for Armani privé of the coming winter has explored women's skin tones in a parade powdery elegance and ethereal, delicately aristocratic and sensual
A nude has nothing provocative and mischievous. A nude ethereal and refined. A nude light and delicate like the pale skin of certain noble ladies of the French Directory, who loved to stroll the streets of Paris wearing simple light liseuses, wetted to leave a glimpse of delicate female form. This is the nude that Giorgio Armani pays tribute with his Armani privé. Although: "This season I put a little by the parade's theme to create a collection dedicated to women, a tribute to their beauty. It's simple just like want to see a beautiful woman with a beautiful dress, "said the designer backstage at the show. "I tried to tell the thousand faces of a woman, that touch of femininity, the game of sensuality, the accent of sinuosity that can arise from playing with her body in an elegant way. I tried to enhance the silhouette and from there came the idea of the nude and the thousand variations in color of the skin. The result is a collection that chooses the nuances of the female complexion to paint a figure ethereal and delicate, almost transparent. "The new season is revealed in the 53 outputs that move sinuous in the great hall dressed in powder. From day dress to evening gowns, following an unique Armani code. To decorate a figure diaphanous and light, the frou frou touch of a raven feathers flower that blooms on the neck and frames the face from the nature traits. And then small precious accessories, jewelry primarily by pearly glow ("They are well-made Italian haute bijoux but I'd like to launch a collection of Giorgio Armani jewelry, an important line of precious ... who knows we will see in the future," said the designer). But to dominate the scene are clothes and small pieces that wrap around the body like a gentle mist. Micro T-shirts of crinoline. Pants of dotted voile with crystals. Embroidered chiffon veil of shell tapes. Invisible tulle for long aerial tunics. "What I imagined is a nude sensual and not vulgar," he added, "delicate." As are the lace assembled in the evening gowns and created using fine raffia. As are the swan sheepskin jackets or coats of thick marabou. As are the long mise of the red carpet dotted with flashes of the moon. And if the day chooses to move along rails faithful to the Armani world, between the coat fluids from the constructed shoulders and liquids pants, the evening has a haughty charm. uncombed Femme hairstyles bring aristocratic charm with petals of macramé, Swarovski handkerchiefs, petticoats inflated volume and female dotted with pearls. In a picture of extreme refinement.
Judgment. An Armani in great shape, which produces a couture collection at the highest levels. "I think today's high fashion is still a bit 'too dramatic. Perhaps what needed is to get back to certain atmospheres of workshops, poetry to tell a more intimate and private, more mysterious, "added the designer," today we are in a dozen to do haute couture and I like the competition. I enjoy it. The high fashion and a challenge between the few and few, at the highest levels. And who competes are the best brands. "And the competition seems to have prompted the designer to create one of his best collections of high fashion since the launch of Armani privé in 2005.
