Giorgio Armani went on stage with a seven-minute video clip. A very short time in which he managed to give form to calmness and strength to kindness: the show was presented exceptionally and for the first time at Palazzo Orsini, in Milan, a location considered the heart of his Milanese atelier. The Giorgio Armani Privé spring summer 2021 collection was a real tribute to the city, a way to remember the key-role of the Milanese spirit of excellence.
The collection expresses rigor and essentiality of both lines and volumes where the decoration is inserted only if the ornament is functional. “Between fluidity and quality of proportions, opposites alternate and merge”, they write about this in a note sent to the press.
“Jackets designed on the body and delicate embroidered slip dresses, sensual slip tunics in satin and voluminous dresses covered with crystals. Pinstripe fabrics with a masculine texture and lamé with gray gold reflections, satin and organza, tulle and washed silk, defined by flounces and touches of midnight blue velvet: an unexpected autumn splendor over summer lightness “.
What emerges is therefore a light, optimistic and joyful wardrobe that looks to the new generations to announce a new spring of grace.
“Couture is rooted in fashion history. It represents the pinnacle of creativity and sartorial skill, but is a world available only to very few. Today, through the democracy of the Internet, we are able to offer a front row seat to everyone.” Giorgio Armani It is the collection that tells the story of Giorgio Armani’s journey, his sense of freedom, his independence from fleeting trends. And in this Giorgio Armani Privé collection, presented for the first time at Palazzo Orsini, the heart of his Milanese atelier, where the clothes are conceived and take shape, one can detect the desire for perfection and a pleasure taken in light and colour, the result conveys the profound aesthetics of Haute Couture to the younger generation.
In recent months Giorgio Armani has been the first to reinforce that idea of aesthetic distinction whereby the thought of perfection can only marry with elegance that is never ostentatious and subtraction becomes an exaltation of uniqueness and style. That timeless style, which is the measure of substance and refinement.
The narrative begins from above and winds through the halls, ceilings and frescoes of Palazzo Corsini with a delicate gait. Trousers and jackets designed on the body, in gray or pale blue, or as a contrasting in rigorous black. Precious floral embroideries for very light silk dresses, slipped satin tunics, impalpable slip dresses, creations in tulle set with jet and crystals, satin, organza and refined silk velvets. The colors are deep, magenta red, Prussian blue or gentle shades of aqua green, its soft greige. To close the intense cobalt blue of the tulle dress which, magnificent, is the vaporous trail that remains of the show. Perfect accessories, hairstyles prepared with conscious naturalness. A true page of high fashion, of grace, luminous beauty and exquisite elegance, of that enchanting sobriety that is innate class when it shines.
