Ultra-feminine, elegant, classy, refined and light spring. This is what the latest Giorgio Armani spring 2012 collection stated at Milan Fashion Week. Elegance that cannot be overlooked, soft tailoring and a desire to charm with the right amount of shiny metallic palette are the main style influences that become instantly vivid at the very first glimpse at the Giorgio Armani spring 2012 collection. Shimmering gowns in a muted metallic palette, elegant suits, classy pants and loose fluffy blouses dazzled at Giorgio Armani.
Taking abstract notions and bringing them into reality through masterpiece-like creations has become a specialty for Giorgio Armani and its spring 2012 collection is no exception to this end. This time it was the perfection of pearls that inspired the renowned designer for creating a real parade of alluring designs, which perfectly balance femininity and masculinity. Unlike many other collections presented during Milan Fashion Week, which had femininity and ladylike dresses as their main features, Giorgio Armani tried to create interest by opting for trousers and spicing things up with delicate motifs and elegant draping. The Armani woman chooses pearly fabrics of lightweight silk and satin with abstract prints, loose-fitting silhouettes, accentuating the gorgeous feminine forms through dramatic folds and pleats, which were also embedded with sequins for a nighttime glamour look.
Asymmetry, surprising cutouts with a strong geometric vibe, metallic touches and a careful balance of proportions are the key features of the Giorgio Armani spring 2012 collection. The great amount of silk used makes the looks more dainty and feminine. Color-wise the collection contains dark blue tones, beige, various grey shades, green tones and blacks.
The designer opted for iridescent effects for a more interesting and a unique touch that really dazzled during the show. There is also a subtle influence felt from the glamorous 40s style, which is emphasized at the structure of the elegant outfits presented. Featuring a high dose of subtlety and unquestionable sophistication, the Giorgio Armani spring 2012 collection is definitely one you wouldn’t like to miss.
