Giorgio Armani Couture 2005/06
Opening up the couture days, Giorgio Armani presented his second line of couture, Armani Privé. His first couture collection, delivered in January this year was fabulous looking. The overall design was heavy on tassels, beads and Swarovski crystals. This season, Armani seemed to have taken a much more low profile, and when it comes to couture, that approach doesn't quite stand out in comparison to other, wilder creations. But the beauty in Armani's work isn't captured in ridiculous, sparkling, eye catching gowns; instead we're looking at a number of garments that some lucky bastard(s) will be able to enjoy for decades. Low key and safe, in black and mother of pearl are the words that first spring to mind. Remortgage our house is the second thought.
