Initial reaction:

Fifty shades of grey, done in flannel – that’s a go-to comfort fabric but Armani adds his own razzle dazzle to mix things up, throwing in an off-kilter shade of lime to make all that grey shine. Dare we say it’s a smidge of neon-hued rave in an Armani show?     

The set:

A glowing green runway – an Armani pavement that lit up at different instances for their woman to go from day to night. 

The way they walked: 

The models gave sideways glances and “smised” at every opportunity as they went down the catwalk. It was a knowing smile.    

The fabric: 

Flannel goes luxurious in the hands of Armani – softened and treated until it becomes almost like silk. For evening, Armani treats it with a lime coloured stone embroidery. 

How they wore it: 

Thick crimp waves to contrast with the soft tailoring and easy eveningwear.
