Milan men's fall 2016.. Armani



And then came Giorgio! 100% pure, UNAPOLOGETICALLY and unadulterated Armani! This is just a collection that can be used an object lesson for those less “endowed” who need to be reminded that consistency, good taste, nuance, DNA and confidence can all take center stage and win the fashion sweepstakes hands down!

Armani just continues to amaze in how he massages and evolves each season. To some the collection might seem boring, but to me he is the quintessence of a now heritage brand that continues to advance without reimagining itself and without bells and whistles. The man understand styling, design and yes image! BTW, he also knows his client!

Maybe better said would be the collection has attitude with a capital A. There is variety of shapes, silhouettes, tailoring, proportions and all within a very limited color palette. And to drive home the point all you need do is examine the casting choices and the styling of each model. It is a cohesive message sent out with each exit.

If you never loved Armani, I am sure I won’t convince you to do so but as stated there are qualities of his presentations that make him a leader if not THE leader of the pack. There is no need for me to examine or dissect it any further as the images more than prove and make my point.
