Giorgio Armani Fall Winter 2012-13
Having a sense of time, of the contemporary, looking to the future yet retaining a strong connection with the past - a ‘sense of tradition’.
This is a value giorgio armani has always held on to with determination and consistency.
To this end, this season’s giorgio armani collection for men reinterprets the classic patterns of men’s fabrics with a touch of irony, emphasising volume, for example tweed, in a range of dolomite-inspired colours, like incredibly light blues and cyan blues, with dots of rust red and oxidized brown.
This ‘dolomite’ look is also expressed in the hermetically-sealed zippers on the shirts and matching waistcoats, their minimalism giving a simple, clean cut appearance.
It is a look that reappears in the velvet and wide-ribbed corduroy trousers, as well as in the cashmere sweaters that feature prints on light backgrounds for a strong, pleasing contrast.
The iconic double-breasted coat is in knitted wool. The fitted, shorter jackets with deconstructed shoulders are matched with 4-dart pants.
The collection demonstrates the new armani silhouette, featuring stretch fabrics throughout, emphasising the concept of elasticity and comfort.
