Giorgio Armani men's spring 2017



Jeeez Louise! Why fix what’s not broken? Armani is the king for a reason. He offers up every variation of a jacket whether abbreviated, shrunken, loose, fitted, precise, rumpled and all of it shown on a variety of MEN not  nubile sexless young things and the Armani man has attitude... and lots of it!!

Yes of course the fawners will be oh so old oh who cares ... face up and see what’s in front of you. .. The man does very little wrong EVER and he doesn’t prattle on about bullshit inspirations and provocations. Giorgio Armani delivers clothes to be worn and loved season after season. This season, in a rare break from his usual MO he introduced some prints which sometimes worked better than others but surely nothing offensive. Pleated pants have returned in a big way with bucket hats and once again that Italian thing they call Sprezzatura!

Bottom line is if you think Prada is fierce and Gucci is groundbreaking, then just move on and wait for the markdowns. Here is what fashion is all about ….. And it supersedes the collections that garner the majority of press attention because it pays homage to the art and craft of fashion and not clown clothes derived from thrift stores.

PS.. take note .. no over the top styling as there is nothing to hide here or compensate for and he didn’t have to have 60 men, he actually had his models change like the glory days of fashion  BUT how can you not love the tee with his photo on it!!
