Giorgio Armani turns to tailored looks for Spring/Summer 17

Giorgio Armani turns to tailored looks for Spring/Summer 17

Giorgio Armani went for trendy and signature tailored garments in its Spring/Summer 17 collection.

The Italian label, founded by designer Giorgio in 1975, put on an extravagant show as part of Milan Fashion Week on Friday morning (23Sep16) with chic structured pieces such as a metallic blue jacket with silver dots and long blue pleated shorts in royal blue.

Giving a true spring/summer vibe many of the models rocked shades, while their hair was all styled in a similar way; tied up with loose strands resting on the right of their heads.

Blue was the main colour used for the designs, coming in everything from a baby blue shade to a navy, and thanks to the different textures such as netting and silk each tone appeared different dependent on the light.

Elegance oozed from the creations, especially ensembles such as a purple halter-neck mini dress with a poufy pleated skirt with a matching purple bag adding a pop of colour to the look.

A few handsome males took to the catwalk as well in suave suits and jacket and shirt combinations. One model stood out from the crowd thanks to his deep red-hued trousers, paired with a navy collared jacket and a dark blue shirt.

Contrasting with a rather muted colour palette was Diesel Black Gold, which showed before Armani. The pale tones made the perfect spring/summer wardrobe and the items were arguably a lot more appropriate for the daytime compared to the luxury line that came afterwards, with a white sleeveless dress featuring frills on the front being a particularly pretty number. Trousers and crop tops made a stylish pairing down the runway.

Milan Fashion Week still has plenty of big brands preparing to show in the Italian city as the weekend kicks off, as Saturday and Sunday (24-25Sep16) will see labels including Jil Sander, Marni and Salvatore Ferragamo unveiling their latest lines.
