BACK TO THE FUTURE
Paris: The influence of Lady Gaga (whom Armani has dressed on multiple occasions) is palpable in Armani Prive’s latest couture collection, where futuristic metallicized fabrics and clean, sculpted lines more than echo the pop star’s personal style. A risky departure from the house’s more classic reputation, the Tron-like materials and shapes, over-the-top embellishments, chain face-masks, and out-there ovoid hats seem better suited to an 80s music video than to the house’s loyal (and comparatively conservative) customers.
