menswear collections: giorgio armani, fall

by Jeremy Danté

the giorgio armani collection stayed in line with their usual direction, providing handsome looks for men for the FW11 show season in milan. a dark palette of grey, blue & black were combined with a few drops of orange, pink & purple for contrast. though the collection is cohesive, some of the attempts at providing relativity to the current seasonal trends seem forced & dully injected into the stone faced concepts of the set. i like a few of the pieces because they are hardcore elements of armani signatures, which in many ways can come off as redundant or revisited. a strong direction outside of the poor choice in contrasted tones at the mid-section of the collection. the armani label continues to stay in their own lane, creativitely & im sure a stunning campaign will be shot with a gorgeous male model to make this seem like more than it appears on the runway.
