Paris Fashion Week is one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year. Recently we were able to see a lot of new creations by famous designers presented in a series of shows in the French capital.
What’s also interesting to be noticed is that the new fashion shows tend to be “shows” by themselves. There are a lot of elements present that do not necessary constitute the subject of fashion design, the set and decor for example. We are featuring few designers from the show in our report.
GIORGIO ARMANI’S SOOTHING COUTURE
Iconic Italian actress Claudia Cardinale was among the old faithful at the Giorgio Armani Prive couture show.
The exhaustive 54-look-strong collection had a vintage feel with head silk wraps that sometimes glistened with embroidered jewels. They endowed the slow walking models with a nostalgic, Hollywood glamour.
But Armani, who has been going ethnic of late, chose to go East this spring-summer with the rest of his collection.
Flat Asian necklines defined silken jackets, as twisted Thai-style check belts and scarves and long pleated pants filed by. While deep indigos colors glistened in the — signature — thick sumptuous jacquards.
The show was set to soothing, jazz music. The slow pace got the better of two older gentlemen on the front row who slept through the entire show.
