Armani Haute Couture S/S11

An elegant Eastern influence permeated the glittering show of colourful sequins, jewels and trinkets from the Italian super brand

With shining gemstones embedded on elevated shoulder pads and jewel-coloured jackets, the Armani Haute Couture show kept to its Eastern influences with elegantly flat Chinese sunhats and exotic makeup. Glittering sequins and diamante were used on flared-sleeve cropped jackets worn with smooth silk satin trousers and daringly low cut V-necks. 

The main feature of the cuffs, metallic bow ties, over sized earrings and layers of jewels were their beautifully bright colours, worn with carefully structured use of classic shapes - such as two-toned capes and layered pencil skirts, or bandeau dresses quilted in shimmering scarlet, before a rainbow puffball skirt and shimmering panels of beads gave a mermaid's tail effect in a glowing turquoise.
