Fall 2010 Couture :: Armani Privé

Armani and I have one big thing in common—an obsession with old Hollywood. This collection in particular exemplified the passion we share. It mostly reminded me of Scarlett Johansson’s wardrobe in The Black Dahlia, classic with a twist of mystery—very femme fatale.

The line emphasized fluidity that is paradigmatic of the grace and beauty of the era. Each picture I looked at seemed to float off the page, making it is easy to envision the models sashaying down the runway.

The clothes were very businesslike, mostly in neutral colors, with some pieces that utilized texture, such as the alligator-skin blazer. The draped jacket, one of Armani’s signature looks, emphasizes the sultry dresses that are underneath without being too showy, proving that sometimes it’s what you cover up that intrigues the imagination. The eveningwear, however, was all glamour; Giorgio dazzled the audience with gorgeous, sparkling gowns.

This line is definitely a must see. But, just a warning: you may be inspired to rent some film noir movies and get a perm after seeing it.
