Giorgio Armani Women’s Collection Spring Summer 2006

Giorgio Armani Women’s Collection Spring Summer 2006

Dedicated to the woman of today: with her glamour, her desire to focus on life’s essentials, her taste for anachronisms. As well as the independence of spirit that prompts her to personalise the fashion that she loves to wear, liking to belong to a group while always projecting her own distinctive look. Here lies the raison d’être of that mixture of styles that constitutes Armani style timeless clothes reinterpreted in the language of our time. Today.

The seductive appeal of contrasts characterises the collection in which short jackets featuring clearly defined small shoulders are teamed with skirts in fluid lines and flowing fabrics (crêpe, organza, satin). The trousers also glide gracefully, sometimes cut on the bias to underline the impeccable tailoring.

A variety of skirts: an inverted tulip with an ethnic accent, wraps like sarongs, in a graduated length that cover the knee at the front and cascading at the back. To emphasise this sense of movement special attention is paid to the edging, pleats and bias.

As if in a new Garden of Eden, the evening gowns are printed with floral motifs and then embroidered, while bird of paradise style brooches perch on the almost molten bodices of the sophisticated jersey dresses. Hats like bouffant hairstyles, stiff black pagodas, or full blown roses, concentrating attention on the face. Like a photographic close up, the eye is drawn to the positive line of the shoulders, emphasised by the jacket or set in relief by the high broad collar of the blouses, falling nonchalantly on the décolleté. The delicate colour palette includes faded shades of greige, putty and cinnamon, with graphic prints, and a range of tropical lagoon jade blues with flashes of Armani red.
