Giorgio Armani may have broken out of his comfort zone a bit for the fall Armani Privé collection he showed in Paris Tuesday, but he definitely stuck to a theme. Everything this season was black, white and red, much of it with a lacquered affect, in silhouettes ranging from practical to whimsical.
On the latter end of that spectrum were polka-dotted veils, fanciful hats, voluminous masses of tulle and big furry balls. Though, as we’ve come to expect from Armani, much of the collection was utterly wearable and elegant. A key look, shown repeatedly, was shorts paired with a blouse or A-line jacket and dainty low heels with ankle straps. In fact, it was a look that reminded us of a certain blonde pop star currently residing in NYC. And while we doubt she was a source of inspiration, we could easily see Taylor Swift falling hard for this collection.
