Floorlength and Fabulous

Giorgio Armani Prive
The amazing little Italian orange man is back ! and the dresses are as beautiful as ever .

Amazing tailoring was a huge aspect of this collection , military/riding and evening jackets were all made in subtle neutral minks and camels to accompany slim fitting pencil skirts or well cut trousers to make very casual but chic suits. some trouser/skirt suits were also paired with long swing coats that flowed gracefully down the catwalk in charcoal greys and brilliant white.

After a couple of dozen tailored wonders down the catwalk came the first set of floor length dresses , these were fantastic ball gown- esque dresses with tightly snug bodices which then went into wide flowing a-line/gathered skirts. These were also kept in the soft mink colours as well as a slightly darker chocolate colour all in materials such as duchess satin and silk crepe and tweed.

My Favourite set of dresses were the final 8 dresses, as they still had my favourite mink and chocolate colours but also brought in texture, embellishment and metallic sparkle , this group of dresses came to me straight away as Christmas party gowns ... if I was at Elton John's for Christmas dinner ! But in every aspect the slim fit floor length dresses were fabulous and has been my favourite Armani Prive collection for along time .
