GIORGIO ARMANI – MILAN F/W 2012 FASHION SHOW
Giorgio Armani’s “Easy Chic” Fall 2012 collection showed menswear tailoring on suits, Bermuda shorts, and blazers, enlivened by a feminine delicacy and pops of tangerine, fuchsia, and berry. The collection demonstrated two of Milan’s strongest trends this season, flats and cropped tailored pants paired with a fitted jacket. The masculine structure to Armani’s suit looks were dramatically softened thanks to chiffon and organza shells, shearling, rabbit, and faux furs, and fit-and-flare coats. Armani explained, “The modern woman loves to dress in androgynous and masculine clothes, yet she doesn’t want to sacrifice feminine subtlety and lightness.” The collection was styled with oversized, fabric floral brooches and fedoras with brims tipped dramatically to the side that gave Armani’s Easy Chic women an aura of intrigue and mystery.
