For me, Giorgio Armani’s Fall showing in Milan was off to a slow start but ended in beauty, and when examined up close, was a careful build in crescendo of details that was masterful- to be expected from someone with decades of experience as an artisan.
Dubbed Garçonne , the collection was every bit the feminine androgyny that the name implies. The models stomped down the runway in cropped black wigs and severe beauty look that bordered on the ugly-ugly rather than pretty-ugly.
According to the show notes, the collection is described by the label themselves as ”decidedly avant-garde,”, and so it was- and was a little harder to interpret from runway to ready to wear. But look closely, and the collection is full of statement accessories- particularly the bags and clutches that are sure to be snapped up by Armani lovers across the globe.
