PRINTWEAR

GEOMETRIC MOTIFS, DYNAMIC, IN MICRO AND MACRO SCALES: THIS IS THE THEME THAT DEFINES THE NEW GIORGIO ARMANI COLLECTION FOR MEN.

“THE USE OF PRINT ON BOTH SHIRTS AND TROUSERS CREATES AN INTERESTING VISUAL EFFECT THAT ELONGATES AND STREAMLINES THE SILHOUETTE, WHICH IS SET OFF BY THE CONTRASTING JACKET WITH ITS SOFT LINES AND NATURAL PROPORTIONS,” OBSERVES GIORGIO ARMANI.

FABRICS AND MATERIALS ARE LIGHTER THAN EVER TO EMPHASISE THE DECONSTRUCTED TAILORING OF THE SINGLE-BUTTON OR DOUBLE-BREASTED JACKETS. THESE ARE COMPLEMENTED BY INNOVATIVE TROUSERS WITH DARTS, A SHADE LOWER IN THE CROTCH AND WITH THE ZIP PLACED AT A SLIGHT DIAGONAL. THE NARROWER HEMS ARE SOMETIMES GATHERED IN BY A BUTTONED TRIM.

COLOURS AND GRAPHICS COMBINE BEAUTIFULLY IN A SERIES OF PRINTS AND ARE APPLIED TO DIFFERENT MATERIALS AND GARMENTS INTENDED FOR A VARIETY OF USES, PRESENTED IN A PALETTE OF PALE, FADED SHADES THAT BLEND NATURALLY WITH THE SKIN. FROM TIME TO TIME, ESPECIALLY IN THE KNITWEAR, GLOSSY EFFECTS HIGHLIGHT THE SHAPES AND DESIGNS.

PARTICULAR ATTENTION HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON THE SHOES, WHERE THE KEY MODELS ARE LIGHTWEIGHT SPORTY BROGUES AND ESPADRILLES IN A RANGE OF MATERIALS, SUCH AS VELVET, CROCODILE SKIN AND THE FINEST SUEDE.

THIS PRECISE AND REFINED STYLE EXPRESSES ITSELF THROUGH EVERY DETAIL.

THINK CURZIO MALAPARTE WITH HIS PERFECTLY SLICKED BACK HAIR.
