Giorgio Armani Privé - Fashion Show Haute Couture Autumn / Winter 2016/17 ( with interview)

Location : Palais de Chaillot Designer : Giorgio Armani Inspiration: Sweetness and serenity Silhouettes: Bustier jacket, a cape in hounds-tooth cloth, harem pants, pagoda sleeves, high shoulders for the jackets that cling close to the body. For the evening a skirt with a split and a transparent top with lightness +velvet dresses hemmed with crystals. To note: the tubular embroideries, the knotted links around the neck. And a geometric style for the silk jackets and feathers on the collar of a muslin shirt with embroidered sleeves with resin tiles. In the front row: Cate Blanchett, friend and muse of the Armani fashion house. Interview with Cate Blanchett: Mr Armani’s work is always evolving but he always goes back to the essentials. And so I find it as exciting to see what he does each season, as I do, to go back over the legacy of shapes and looks and silhouettes that he has evolved over his long and exciting career.I think it always amazes me as I work in theatre, so you have this incredible series of artisans, and people working so hard for a five minute moment. They’re all so hard working they’re on to the next collection already. I think you’re always looking for the core of the idea, and that’s why I think couture is so important, it has an influence on the silhouettes and the look and the vision for all of the other layers of a house.
