MILAN - RTW S/S 2008

On the Armani runway. After the Giorgio Armani fashion show, it is customary for Mr. Armani to pose with all the models for the photographers. It is here that he receives and is photographed with the celebrities, who watched the show from the front row. The Spring Summer collection, entitled South was inspired by the slow mood of the languid southern Italian summer. A gentle and relaxed sense of time and a yearning for a life more closely tied to the rhythms of nature; fierce light and deep shadows that alter the intensity of colors, reviving beige putty, earth grey and transforming blue into lava black, with the dark green palms, stylized and enlarged to create abstract patterns and geometric motifs.
