Fashion | Armani Privé Spring 2011 couture collection

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.

What did you think of the Armani Prive Spring 2011 collection?

    i totally agree. This collection is very avant-garde. It’s nothing like his previous collection last season that’s why I like it. Unlike Dior whose recent collection resembles his Fall 2010 spring couture collection.

    So far, Armani Privé Spring 2011 couture collection is my most favorite this season 🙂

    I think I’m going to have to agree with you.

    The couture collections did not blow me away this season as they usually do so it’s a little difficult for me to pick a favourite. Armani Prive is right up there with Givenchy as my favourite couture collection this season but (relative) newcomers like Stephane Rolland and Alexandre Vautier are not far behind (in terms of creativity).
