GALACTIC VISIONARY
Milan: Although Giorgio Armani is certainly refined, he is not exactly a minimalist nor a futurist, but for S/S 13 much of his mainline collection could be called both. Nipped waist jackets and ankle-grazing wide leg trousers rendered in silvery grey organza and silk were paired with sporty oxfords and briefcase bags for a monochrome look that would be at home in a retro sci-fi movie like Gattica. Eveningwear could’ve also come from the future by way of the 40s, with abstracted snakeskin repeat patterns, beaded tunic dresses layered atop satin pants and celestial embroidery. Stargazing was most certainly on Armani’s mind this season as he closed his presentation by mimicking the night sky with glinting, hypnotic points of light, summing up this gorgeous and forward thinking vision of fashion beyond our galactic limitations.—Nina Stotler
