Favoring soft constructions and ethnic touches, the designer was in his element in this moment of softness and simplicity, taking the audience to a far-off place.
With all of the week’s obsessions with everything from the new brand of streetwear to wild prints and neons and Eighties and Nineties nostalgia, Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 2019 Milan proved a welcoming relief from the trend chasing.
This was the Maestro in his element, a moment of softness and simplicity, taking the audience to a far-off place.
The super-elegant collection – centered around the double-breasted jacket – catered to the languid lifestyle of a global nomad traveling around the world, pulling on myriad references but with a cohesiveness and coziness to his wardrobe.
Playing with proportions.
The designer channeled an elegant gentleman – or at times gentleman farmer – off duty, albeit interpreted through an urban lens, with a palette of mineral colors.
With straw hats, fedoras and leather espadrilles among the accessories, Armani focused on his signature super-soft constructions, from gaucho-style oversized pants worn with stitched leather waistcoats over long-sleeved T-shirts to suede safari jackets.
