CULTURE VULTURE

Prestige (Singapore) - - AGENDA -

Amid dis­tressed treat­ments, nat­u­ral tex­tures and a soft colour pal­ette, one thing stands out from gior­gio ar­mani’s new-sea­son of­fer­ings: Car­ribean-flavoured or­na­men­tal graph­ics. “Ex­oti­cism is a fun­da­men­tal trait of my de­sign lan­guage,” ex­plained the Ital­ian mae­stro. “I like to look to other cul­tures, other ways of un­der­stand­ing the cut of gar­ments, other styles of decor, or meth­ods of weav­ing fabrics and then in­te­grate th­ese el­e­ments into my search for so­phis­ti­cated and time­less sim­plic­ity. Th­ese ab­stract graphic pat­terns have an ob­vi­ous warmth and I used them as a light touch to char­ac­terise clothes and ac­ces­sories.”
