Milan Fashion Week: Giorgio Armani

According to, Mr. Armani's inspiration was the summers in southern Italy. I haven't been to Italy (yet), but I can definitely see that warm Mediterranean climate ideal coming through in his clothes.

Armani's collection was all about glittering headwraps and scarves with floaty pants tied at the knees. Fabrics were muted neutrals and were light and ethereal. I'm noticing a pattern already!

Isn't this wrap delicious? I can see myself wearing this while enjoying a cocktail in an outdoor cafe somewhere on Italy's southern coast.

Is this a caftan? I don't know. It doesn't really matter. It's gorgeous, and I'd happily wear it on the yacht that I don't have.

This dress is just dangerous. And the colors are stunning without being completely in your face. Notice the matching headwear - it was on every model on the runway.

I love this dress just for the wrap.

I'm definitely seeing the flapper resurgence in the evening wear. I think it's lovely and a nice change from the overly-revealing direction evening wear was headed in.

And it's good to see that Mr. Armani threw a print in there for those of us who really love our graphic prints and don't want to put them away yet.
