The look Elegant pearlescent women from beneath the waves.
Key pieces Strong separates stood out for spring 12 at Giorgio Armani, with silk trousers featuring knee-high hem slits and a selection of jacket styles including minimal collarless versions, casual unstructured options and dressier fitted styles with flared-out hems. These came layered over draped cowl-neck, wraparound and one-shoulder tops. Strapless midi and maxi dresses were included in eveningwear, with rippling folds and ruches in high-shine silks and satins.
Colours Watery shades of blue and green with iridescent mother of pearl tones.
Commercial appeal While the collection’s elegant simplicity will appeal to the core Giorgio Armani customer, the fact that it doesn’t fit into the season’s emerging trends might limit its wider appeal.
