Focus on collections: Giorgio Armani Privé Fall/Winter 2011/2012

The essence of Giorgio Armani’s Fall Haute Couture was a striking symbiosis of man and country as his deep passion for Japanese culture emanated throughout the traditional Japanese elements of origami and music to then fully whisk us away to the far East. This collection pays homage to the recent disaster that struck Japan which caused a philanthropic gesture by him to donate to a UNESCO scholarship fund to help children victims affected by March’s tragedy. “Japan has been a great fountain of inspiration to me—the designs, the colors, and the shape.” With this specific Privé show, he wanted to show his support in a more personal way, yet acknowledge where his creative endevors stem from.

Japanese visual icons such as kimonos, obi belts, painted screens, superior lacquer work, and beautifully arranged ikebana flower headpieces were all concepts some-what incorporated in previous collections making him a natural at mastering Asian flare.

The fluidity of the vivacious prints donning blossoms and parasols were transformed into pantsuits and strapless dresses cinched at the waist with a black glossy bustier, or an obi belt adding a East-meets-West mix through familiar Armani templates. The color contrast of the creamy peaches and apricots working against the grays and blacks created an interesting duo that is striking and stunning. Origami elements were featured in folds of the clothing as well as in the architecture of the dramatic headpieces that highlighted the delicate structure of this collection. The show ended with a dazzling orange buggle beaded sleeveless dress that giving off a dim illuminance and the feeling a prestige.
