Giorgio Armani Designer: Giorgio Armani

  • "Giorgio Armani had the last word at Milan Fashion Week, and not only where the clothes were concerned." [AP]
  • "Mr. Armani steered clear of the clownish, of course, while still infusing plenty of whimsy into the collection." [Daily Front Row]
  • "A startlingly masculine collection." [

    The Daily Telegraph]

  • "A calm, refocused pitch to the Armani faithfuls." [ELLEuk.com]
  • "The suiting was so relaxed in its own elegance that it was hard to resist the idea it might convey the same confidence in any closet." [FT.com]
  • "The line explored an ultra elegant, boyish way of dressing which compromised nothing in the glamour stakes." [Grazia Daily]
  • "Armani’s collection was just as specific, and not actually ‘androgynous’ the way we use it now to describe sexless uniform dressing; this was much more of a costume and was full of sex, but for girls who liked girls, in Paris 1880." [i-D Online]
  • "After dalliances with dresses and the embrace of skirts, Giorgio Armani went back to his first love--pants--for his show Monday that closed the Milan season." [International Herald Tribune]
  • "Though black with silvery white was the dominant tone at Armani, and the collection retold the boy-girl theme, there were some good switch-ups." [The New York Times]
  • "The take away image from this show was how the designer reworked the classic man’s vest into something sensual for a woman to wear." [NOWFASHION]
  • "He called his show Garçonne, though this time it was comme de Rei in a different way, more attuned to the—in hindsight—almost romantic androgyny of her collections from several decades ago." [Style.com]
  • "What differentiated his collection this season was the French savoir faire that ran throughout." [Vogue.com]
  • "Giorgio Armani has had quite the weekend of shows--unveiling his Emporio line yesterday, having Jessica Chastain and Naomi Watts among those taking to the Oscars’ red carpet catwalk, and showing his Giorgio line this morning. What a way to start the working week." [Vogue.com UK]
  • "Armani’s attentions clearly were not diverted by his Oscars responsibilities; this was a quite complicated, labor-intensive collection." [WWD]
