Ar­mani is renowned for its pre­cise cuts and beau­ti­ful fab­rics. The la­bel nudged con­ven­tion by rein­vent­ing women’s suit­ing, mak­ing pieces some­what tomboy­ish—sin­gle­and dou­ble-breasted trouser suits in shades of grey and pin­stripes were ac­ces­sorised with brogues, pocket hand­ker­chiefs and bowler hats. Yet the light­est touch of Ar­mani magic sug­gested cu­lottes as an al­ter­na­tive to tra­di­tional trousers; by adding fab­ric, the de­signer changed the work­ing woman’s sil­hou­ette. A high­light was the de­con­struc­tion of a tuxedo suit into a hal­ter-neck dress. Pops of aqua glimpsed through­out the show were per­haps Ar­mani’s way of will­ing the win­ter skies to stay blue.
