MFW: Giorgio Armani

By: Quinn Bell
Menswear inspired looks ruled Giorgio Armani’s Fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection, which showed earlier today. The collection was titled “Garçonne” and featured a wide array of androgynous pieces such as loose, cropped trousers, fitted jackets with baubley buttons, loafers, oxfords and lots of suspenders.

The boyish feel of the show was subdued by the palette of black, white, and light greys, purples and blues. Materials used were primarily luxurious and soft, reflecting the underlying femininity of the clothes, including velvet, silk, leather detailing and furs. Each of the models wore a black bob wig with blunt bangs peeking out from underneath a slouchy black velvet hat. Silver thread, embellishments and details added a hint of glamour to the otherwise minimal pieces. The collection, which consisted of 84 looks, came to a close with a parade of floor-length, avant-garde ensembles that reflected Giorgio Armani’s eye for subtle, but incredibly elegant detail.
