Giorgio Armani resort 2019


At first glance I  thought …  well this is not gonna work out well but upon further examination this is a relaxed more youthful less up tight Armani than we are used to  and yes it is all Armani.

 Unquestionably it is not as precise as is expected, it is more fluid... okay I’ll say it its baggier/looser but hell it looks comfy and not as rigid as the usual seasonal offerings.

 The signatures remain including the subdued palette but what has changed here is the model and the addition of trainers and flat shoes as the preferred footwear. Perhaps this collection is more about pieces/separates than usual.

 While appearing to appeal only to a younger customer via the visuals …. It is so deceiving in that there is so much here that is any of his clients... the universal language and vocabulary of Giorgio Armani. This is a lesson to all designers what can be done when you add a dash of trend and not let trend take over your collection.

 As ever, Armani is for a particular lady of means except this season she could conceivably be of a different generation albeit one with money to spend.
