Milan: Swayed by the seaside – more specifically sand, Giorgio Armani sent forth a beautiful array of looks bathed in a soothing palette of neutrals. Shadow prints of sand formations were mesmerizing and cast a calming effect throughout the collection. Soft, fluid silhouettes embodied ease and sensuality. Dimensional effects in the form of twisted materials and pleating created new shapes. To top it all off, a number of ensembles were adorned in pearlescent beading illuminating delicate fabrics. –Deirdre Pérez
