Once in a while in fashion, a collection seems to turn the tide not in setting trends, but for reviving true appreciation for fashion without that superficial want to wear what is shown so you can be seen. Armani Privé's Spring 2015 Couture is one such collection.
Elevating its stellar beauty, this collection is the 10th from the Armani Privé house. And what a way to celebrate this milestone - look after look after look, there seemed to be no going wrong for Mr. Armani. The first looks were dazzling in champagne hues, in a myriad of both hard-edged and softly fabrics, rife with Oriental elements such as the bamboo print.
As the show went on, the collection transition into a more elemental theme - with the faint earthy browns and champagnes replaced by a smokey green. The greens fit perfectly with what seemed to be shoals resembling seaweed and layered skirts that emulate the flow of the flora in water. Despite this, the Oriental feel did not go away, with the pieces being an interpretation of Ancient Japanese clothing for the modern, sophisticated woman.
Finally, the collection ended with shining cobalt blues and stark blues in chiffon and silks. These were by far the most beautiful of the collection, the embellishments enhancing the exquisiteness of the evening gowns. Again, the juxtaposition of rigid and flowing fabrics along with luxe embellishments make for a Couture collection like no other this season. This collection showed how and why Mr. Armani is still one of the reigning fashion designers of our time.
