  • Giorgio Armani Fall 2012 Menswear

    From Giorgio Armani you can always expect the finest of substantial Italian fabrics cut in dynamic, forever-chic silhouette’s that are timeless and his latest outing for Fall 2012 Menswear stood out with its full, relaxed silhouette amidst Milan’s slim cuts seen virtually everywhere.

    Here’s a quick look at the goods up for grabs next season and a word on the collection from the designer.

    In Armani’s words:

    “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, EMPHASIZING

    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, EMPHASIZING THE CONCEPT OF ELASTICITY AND COMFORT.”
