Haute Couture Spring/Summer 14: Armani Privé
Armani's starry show
For Haute Couture spring/summer 2014, Armani took his inspiration from bohemian goddess Loulou de la Falaise, who was once Yves Saint Laurent's muse. Falaise's iconic gypsy style is seen throughout the show, from long printed silk skirts to models heads wrapped in scarves.
The show started with a relaxed aesthetic, little silk tops paired with plissé pants and soft flowing skirts paired with silk jacquard blazers. All accessorised with elegant hoop earrings and printed scarves elegantly draped over models shoulders - evoking the mood relaxed dressing. The second half of the show brought some sparkle to the runway, tailored jackets were embellished with decorative designs while skirts and dresses were adorned with lace, embroidery and crystal beading.
The colour palette was a mix of metallic silver, soft grey, midnight blue, deep purple and rose pink complemented by embellishments and glowing fabrics, making each model look like a star from that fell from the sky.
