Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 2012: The sheen of mother-of-pearl, the iridescence that transforms colours into watery reflections.Light that becomes shape, shape that is distilled into the purest lines. The more important the role of the fabric, the more conceptual the line of the garment.Defined, even beneath skirts and dresses, by wafer thin trousers with a slight slit at the front.The jackets, cut on the bias for greater fluidity and freed from collars and buttons, are fastened at the bust by a tiny hook concealed within. The dresses come in a range of different lengths, from knee to ankle, cascading over the body like glistening water.Invoking an utterly modern elegance that rejoices in gleaming silks and satins in aqueous and mineral colours nuanced between green and azure. Culminating in the see-through dress that appears to be covered in minute drops of water applied to a mesh base. In a game of subtractions and reversals, precious evening gowns are worn with flat shoes, while day dresses call for high heels.
