Giorgio Armani dazzles Milan with stellar designs

MILAN- Giorgio Armani dazzled Milan fashion week on Sunday with a collection ranging from sleek silk suits in the brand's trademark subtle tones to a series of glittering evening wear creations.
The first half of the show was dominated by trouser suits in gossamer silk, broken up by a few shorts -- all done in greys, blue-greys or soft turquoises, and worn with a sliver of a hat, perched on the side of the head, beret-style.

The look was sensuous but powerful, with sharply-tailored suits worn with masculine shoes with silver heels. As the show went on, flowing trousers were layered with fabric in an Armani retake on the skirt-over-trousers trend.
It was the evening wear that won Italian fashion king Giorgio Armani rounds of applause from the delighted fashionista audience, as he brought out one after another of glittering dresses and floaty creations with a stellar design.
"The sparkle is accentuated for the evening, with a constellation of stars on a navy blue background," the brand said in its programme notes.
The key to the collection was light -- shimmering on silk or bouncing off crystal adornments or rhinestone-studded heels, to create a multifaceted effect, "as if observed through a kaleidoscope," the label said.
The spring/summer 2013 designs were unveiled in front of a host of celebrity guests, including tennis star Serena Williams.
The show was followed by drinks and mini sushi bites before the prestigious fashion house unveiled an exhibition gathering together the best of its designs, from clothes to accessories and jewels.
