Couture Week AW12: Armani Privé

Giorgio Armani sent his models down the runway with beautiful veils (as seen at Dior and Giambattista Valli this week as well), creating a collection for Armani Privé that was more wearable than other couturiers have presented.

Still as luxe as they come, the tailoring was pared-down and feminine and, more importantly, soft and elegant. The colour palette was muted, with pastel shades complimenting the black veils with crystal embellishments. The signature tailoring was strong; black velvet as well as wide-legged, voluminous trousers were teamed with simple jackets with sharp shoulders.

For eveningwear, it was all drama. Floor-length gowns with organza trains and corsets to streamline the silhouette came with crystals that shone in the light —giving emphasis to the designer’s aim to capture the magical moments of the day.
