Milan Fashion Week Giorgio Armani AW11.jpg

Closing Milan Fashion Week yesterday was my old pal (ha!) Giorgio Armani. In grand style, the designer proved that time slows down for no one with the unveiling of a spectacular A/W '11 collection, which cited the boudoir as his main reference.

With that in mind, it was time to launch a series of super luxe, super feminine pieces onto the runway. Using a colour scheme of mostly silver, black and dusty rose, Armani displayed an abundance of silks, satins, feathers, fur, fringe, lace and embroidery. There was a new trouser style that we should be soon be taking note of - cropped, with a swishy flare. The long bell skirt also made another appearance this MFW although in a heavier form. But the best was saved to last, with a parade of sparkly metallic fabrics which floated along in pant suits, day frocks and embellished evening gowns.
