Welcome to a more casual Giorgio Armani Fall collection - which is not a bad thing. Looks worn with flats set the tone for this played down show. Also, if you take into account the beautiful draping and beading, casual does not mean non-luxurious.
Mostly jacket and skirt pairings was surprising - leaving me wondering where all the dresses were. But the jacket and skirt duos were supreme. There was mild bubbling and draping of the hems while still managing to create a streamlined silhouette. Soft tweeds and peplum created texture with flowing signature silk. In soft neutrals, pastels and a bit of navy there was just the right amount of volume. A whimsical butterfly print was a pleasant surprise as was the beaded detached sleeves. A black and white stripe was lovely, but I'm over stripes personally. Strapless was a player, but I really enjoyed the thin jet crystal straps that graced a couple of shoulders.
