Giorgio Armani Fall Winter 2023-2024 “Cipria” Milan Fashion Week. Story by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE. Photo Courtesy: Giorgio Armani.
When we speak about fashion we always think about these elegant timeless silhouettes, we always imagine Armani. Thanks God that nothing changed and women all over the world can still look elegant and gracious on the streets. There are always little beret, long coat or jacket, silk trousers and little masculine black shoes or heels. How many generations of women consider it as an impeccable style and dress like this every day?
Make-up (Cipria, as in compact powder, the namesake of the collection) is always an intimate, personal moment, just like the atmosphere that pervades this collection: the wardrobe is fluid and sublime. Shapes follow the body and its movements: silky dresses that recall pajamas, enveloping shawls, soft trousers, pullovers, elongated jackets, and long dresses, in a cosmetic palette of earth, bronze, and powder with touches of mandarin enhanced by an abundance of black Kajal.
The stylized flower motif is recurrent, a synthesis of grace, delicacy, and discretion. This interior story is accompanied by subtle plays of shiny and matte that range from clothes to accessories, equally soft, including the new model of La Prima. Beaded fringes dance on berets, almost resembling sparkling hairstyles and adding allure and mystery. An enveloping and personal vision that suggests intimacy as an antidote to a moment of theatrical excess.
And that’s a wrap! Bye bye Milan, and Bonjour Paris! Next stop – Paris Fashion Week!
