While many designers are looking back to the 80s for its flashy logomania, Giorgio Armani reminisced on the easy, breezy attitude to tailoring he ushered in during the decade; just as significant in its own, quieter way. He also cleverly drew a line between his trademark loose construction and the workwear trend that has been so popular over the past few years – in particular, the overshirts with military-style pockets are sure to be a commercial hit.
The fabrics were, as always, exquisite. Rich indigo linens and velvets that communicate the impeccable taste and laid-back attitude of its wearer. It was as refined a collection as you would expect from one of menswear’s most seasoned maestros, and its self-contained colour palette made it an ideal capsule wardrobe. Time to shop.
