Giorgio Armani’s Fall/Winter Collection At MFW Features La Garçonne Très Chic

Choosing as his source of inspiration the image of la garçonne, the archetype of the Thirties woman, who wasn’t afraid to showcase her femininity and celebrate her independence by borrowing pieces from men’s wardrobes, Giorgio Armani has created for the Fall/Winter 2013 season, a collection in which the menswear-inspired silhouettes were given extremely chic and feminine connotations.

Jackets were a key-element of the Giorgio Armani show, the designer having imagined them in every possible version: from ones with waistlines accentuated with the help of either wide belts or oversize buttons, featuring graphic patterns and paired with velvet trousers, to more relaxed versions, worn with slouchy, wide-leg pants, or, conversely, versions with rigurous silhouettes and clean-cut lines.

Jumpsuits with the top part translated into wide, oversize lapels, soft cashmere sweaters and minimalist dresses completed the chic line-up of daytime looks.

For nighttime, Armani proposed elegant looks in deep shades of black, in the form of dresses with deep, plunging necklines and draped silhouettes, or boasting intricate embellishments featuring sparkling appliqués, for a suave and distinctly feminine apparition.
