Giorgio Armani resort 2017



I am not about to try and convince you that Giorgio Armani is one of the great masters of fashion of this century or any other. He is a designer who has never abandoned his DNA who continuously and consistently sends his message out on the runway season after season.

Some will say it couldn’t be more boring and more will say who cares but then again there are those of us who get it and by get it I mean to say that women who can afford these clothes are not the women who need to be walking  photo ops at social events or fashion victims on the street …  if in fact there is anyone tasteless or needy enough to wear the “emperor’s new clothes” on the street.

This is quintessential Armani; it is at all times easy, relaxed, feminine, tailored and above all... chic! He plays with volumes, with the weightlessness of the clothes, the contrasts of full and narrow and as always there is the discreet slick color palette. Did I forget to mention that this actually looks like resort collections as they were intended to be before the fashion calendar began working on a markdown schedule rather than selling seasons.

The fawners will fawn over the likes of Gucci, Dior, LV, Balenciaga and such but it is the cognoscenti who will calmly make a shopping  list and then proceed to shop whether there is hype or not. And to those who believe this to be boring ... well ... I would much rather be bored than horrified!
