Just in time for lazy sum­mer days and breezy evenings by the beach, Giorgio Armani takes the indispensa­ble jacket and gives it a re­laxed new el­e­gance

GIORGIO ARMANI has always known how to change with the times. The jacket in his new­est menswear col­lec­tion ex­em­pli­fies that fact.

“We live in a time of ex­treme in­for­mal­ity, which of­ten re­veals the need for pre­ci­sion. Nowa­days el­e­gance can be soft, and com­fort­able,” says the de­signer. “With this col­lec­tion, I pro­posed up-to-date dou­ble-breasted jack­ets, as easy to wear as shirts or T-shirts, that can even be worn on bare skin; yet they’re still able to give the ef­fect of a nat­u­ral and re­laxed el­e­gance.”

De­con­structed and shed of its tra­di­tional lin­ings, the jacket is soft and nat­u­rally flow­ing. Colour vari­a­tions in­clude chalk white, hemp grey, and blue with hints of turquoise and pow­der blue. Worn with a slim-fit­ting waist­coat and flow­ing, rolled-up trousers, the beach-ready jacket of­fers “a wealth of pos­si­bil­i­ties of ex­pres­sion, ma­te­ri­als and colours”.

And while the 1980s style ref­er­ence is un­mis­take­able, Armani has made sure the look is wholly con­tem­po­rary and in no way nos­tal­gic.
