Milan Fashion Week

Fashion fix

New press releases from the Giorgio Armani Fall/Winter 2011/2012 Men’s show, which took place this morning in Milan.

Inspired by city life, Armani’s AW11/12 collection consisted of strong shapes, dark colours and varying lengths of jackets and coats. They were styled combining different shades broken up with a flash of another colour. See how the laid back look of the suit and the drawstrings on the trousers combines with sportswear for a more urban contemporary look.

The style of the season is undoubtedly gentlemanly with long flowing coats and fitted suits of an earthy and urban palette, however the futuristic look comes into play above with the mesh top and colour blocking.

This Matrix look exudes Armani style. Colours for the season include Camel, black and dark greys in strong masculine shapes…

Sunday 16th January:

The classic manly silhouette, of fitted jackets and suits, is interrupted subtly here with flashes of rich colour at every opportunity making the look almost robotically perfect…

The would be oldie looks have been reinvented to add a contemporary edge to the urbanized collection. These beige trousers perfectly combine casual, sporty and smart at the same time, settling somewhere in the middle with carefree turned down hat trims and shoes shined to the max.

Does anyone else think he looks like the tin man of The Wizard of OZ? Nonetheless this look totally works for inner city chic combining metallics and texture, the main feature of this outstanding collection. LLLB
