Armani Privé’s haute couture collection for autumn/winter 2010/11 debuted in Paris yesterday, and while it may not get as much celebrity or press attention as the likes of Elie Saab, Chanel or Christian Dior, for me it never fails to disappoint. Georgio Armani in my opinion has always been the king of understated luxury and glamour, with clean minimalistic lines and a love for basic colours.
This season, his theme is a “play on amber” and all its many hues from glistening gold, to rich ochres and golden tans. And as usual it was sharp, beginning with tailored suits and assortment work-wear and ending with rich and heavily embellished dresses that are structured and cool.
Here are my favourite pieces of a rich collection that I absolutely adore!
