Giorgio Armani Womenswear S/S11

Inspired by nights in the Sahara, Armani adorned organza frills with crystal brooches and beaded turbans

“I was inspired by nights in Sahara”, said Giorgio Armani of the predominantly navy collection that he presented in Milan on the Monday. Along that note, flowing silks and leathers dominated the line, with crystal and sequin beading echoing the shine of the starry sky. Rows of organza frills on the hips were the only interruption of Armani’s minimalistic silhouette. They also made a reference to the three-part, layered look, which the designer previously explored in his diffusion line. Crystal brooches, beaded clutch bags and turbans were paired the cropped jackets, asymmetrical dresses and peg-leg trousers, making the collection a great offering for a glamorous night out.
