Armani has fancy ideas for next summer
Lined up in the front row to wish him well were several celebrity offspring: Pierre Sarkozy, son of French President Nicolas Sarkozy; Willow Smith, daughter of actor Will Smith, and Amber Le Bon, daughter of rock star Simon Le Bon and top model Yasmin Le Bon.
Also on hand for the spring-summer 2011 collection dubbed “Fancy Girl” and presented on Saturday in the Armani headquarters’ theater were Willow’s actress mom Jada Pinkett Smith and American movie star Megan Fox.
According to Armani, who over the past 30 years has created a fashion empire of stores, restaurants and most recently hotels worth over $3 billion (nearly ?4 billion), “fancy” represents the perfect balance between “wit and fun.”
There were lots of “fancy” items in the show, from large ethnic-inspired necklaces to high-heeled satin sandals to mini evening bags.
Leitmotif of the latest Emporio collection was the stretch tulle legging or skirt, which provided a covering layer for the above-the-knee skirts and mini dresses, both for day and night.
Everything in the show had a feel of lightness, especially the summer jackets which could double for a gauze scarf.
The main Emporio palette, like many collections seen during the current Milan Fashion Week, is based on natural tones, from light gray to sandy beige, with flashes of green and the occasional black.
Watermelon red is Armani’s “fancy” color, which the designer fashions into a fiesta of evening dresses with straight neckline, flounced skirt and, of course, the tulle cover-up.
