Giorgio Armani’s RTW AW16 show provided audiences with an odd juxtaposition of Italian flair within subdued outfits. The looks on display were packed with incredible detailing, with leaden colours invigorated through the use of textures, patterns and geometric designs – often simultaneously.
Furs, wools and leathers were prominent in a number of the looks, with unconventional cuts combining to provide incredible depth to each outfit. Loose silhouettes allowed for more creativity in layering, often framed with flowing overcoats, with curved edges on the jackets enhancing the softness of the silhouettes.
There was a vast array of tailoring on offer – single and double breasted, pinstriped and checked, velvet and wool – paired utilitarian bags and a ubiquitous rimmed hat.
