To say Giorgio Armani’s Spring 2011 couture collection for Armani Prive was shiny would be the understatement of the year. The king of Milan presented a futuristic yet oddly vintage collection that was heavy on high shine, jewel tones and 80s and 70s influence (including whispers of Pierre Cardin).
While the Lady Gaga influence was evident in otherworldly collection (I’m looking at you flying saucer hats à la Marvin the Alien) it was still unmistakably Armani with slick, elegant tailoring and design and, of course, navy.
While I could have done without the shiny leggings I absolutely loved the column dresses with cut away waists in contrasting colours and the bejeweled bodices paired with a cream skirt and purple waist.
