Giorgio Armani: Pre-Fall 2019

Serving some hump-day executive realness, it’s the just-released Giorgio Armani Pre-Fall 2019 collection. Overflowing with classic-with-a-twist pantsuits, longline overcoats and slinky dresses, this season seems to be focused at a sense of easy elegance with a vibrant character carrying out the clothes. Even though this is absolute ready-to-wear, there’s interest coming at you left, right and central – what in shapes and cuts, but also in interesting fabric choices. Contrast of matte and shiny textiles, unexpected lengths of trousers and a play of lightness and weight all add a sense of newness to the Armani conversation.

A single look does stand out – the floral jacquard double-breasted suit worn with a chunky pump and a contrasting white shoulder bag. It’s like the best classic infused with just the right touch of modernity, resulting in clothes that could be worn by three different generations of the same family. Such is the power of Giorgio Armani, one that’s been driving the success of his brands for the past 43 years, without a single stop. Innovative yet timeless, overflowing with new energy – it’s all you need in your wardrobe for the season in-between.
