Giorgio Armani SS15
Giorgio Armani introduced his spring/summer show with a short film by Oscar-winning director, Paolo Sorrentino, entitled Sand. Depicting views of the wave-drenched shores of Stromboli and Lipari and an entwined couple caked in sand, the movie was the perfect opening to a collection inspired by nature. With a neutral colour palette and silky layers, there was an irresistible lightness to the line-up. A snake-printed chemise opened the show, giving way to croc-stamped sculpted jackets and silky culotte shorts in hues of sand and greige, all teamed with lace-up brogues. Ombre jackets came with cuffed trousers in easy, mannish shapes that were cropped to just above the ankle and worn with boxfresh white pump trainers. For evening, draped gowns in silk chiffon billowed with their handkerchief hems, some with gauzy pantaloons worn underneath for added volume, others with crystal straps for a Grecian goddess look that perfectly matched the models' plaited hair. Drop-waist beaded tunics recalled the granular effect of sand in the most glamorous way possible. As ever, it was an utterly wearable collection that comprised plenty of wear-anywhere options, including fine knits, silky blouses and day-to-night clutches.
