Armani

I rarely find myself very enthusiastic about couture. Truth be told, I think it's a little bit silly. This season, though, I do think that one house so far is worth notice: Armani.



Armani is the master of innovative silhouettes. In a fashion world where soft lines currently seem to hold court, he steadily continues to send sharp, almost dapper suits down the runway. For this I admire him. Not to say that he can't do the whole girly, ethereal thing; In fact, he's nearly as proficient at this as he is at androgyny, as demonstrated by the lovely single-strap brocade confection above. The clothes were all done up in pearl gray, champagne, and charcoal. These subtle neutrals were dramatized with liberal amounts of jewels spangled heavily throughout the show, and overall, it was nothing but breathtaking.

Giorgio, will you adopt me?

Not a huge fan of Armani, but I adored the paleness of his models. I'm a sucker for the sun deprived..
