Giorgio Armani Prive Couture Fall 2016 Show Delivers High Doses of Sensuality

An ethereal sense of fluidity, timeless staples revisited in a more modern key… The newest Giorgio Armani Prive Couture fall/winter 2016-17 collection overwhelms us with uber-chic garments that are surprisingly wearable (almost) on a daily basis.

This Couture line-up also takes us back to Giorgio Armani’s origins, namely those of a couture-oriented designer, who created covetable red-carpet-worthy ensembles with his clean cuts and refined lines we still vividly remember. Like many of his colleagues, Giorgio Armani has been focusing on the millennial audience in his most recent collections, looking for fresh ways to intertwine his remarkable style with the younger public’s taste.

Couturistic at its purest, the Giorgio Armani Prive Couture fall 2016 line-up has been created while keeping in mind what Armani’s most devoted aficionados are expecting from an Armani runway show. As a result we are treated to pieces that exude elegance and a delicate sense of movement that keeps a synergy between both the worlds.

Although targeting classic style buffs, it doesn’t mean the collection doesn’t keep an eye on the younger generations that are currently exploring and enjoying the haute couture aesthetics a lot, especially when it comes to the modern time Armani suit.

The 55-piece line-up blends fresher materials and lines with Giorgio Armani’s iconic aesthetics, precisely showcasing the most wearable looks. As the show draws to a close, Armani pushes his aesthetics further and further, leaving us in awe of what could be regarded as a grand finale indeed.

This Giorgio Armani Prive Couture collection could by divided into three main sections: while in the first one we see day-to-day pieces one could effortlessly wear at any formal event, in the second part Armani had fun with more intricate designs and patterns, presenting whimsical (yet always sophisticated) garments that could easily transition from day to night.

As for the third part, the Italian designer solely focused on jaw-dropping, full of personality pieces, the artisanal cuts of which diverge from one another and appear more and more elaborate as we approach the end of the show.

Asymmetrical, clean-cut jackets leave enough room for art deco-inspired patterns to blossom, with the latter in return paving the way for vertical fur embellishments to shine throughout the collection. The very last Thirties-inspired ensembles conquer our hearts with their fluid, loungwear-inspired fabrics and structured shoulders, not to mention the many Swarovski crystal embroideries and transparency inserts some of them have been adorned with.

Sensuality plays a huge role within the collection too, in all its glory. It’s everywhere, and links all of the pieces to one another with its subtle, cold-toned fil rouge. From the more naïve suits to the closing pieces with sheer details that leave nothing to the imagination, Giorgio Armani reminds us that there is not one true and right way to feel sensual in one’s skin. Sensuality embraces all tastes, personalities and ways of conceiving fashion: you’ll just need a bit of self-confidence and a staple wearing which you will feel invincible.
