Giorgio Armani’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection painted a serene, aquatic scene.

Like a stream of water trickling beneath a moonlit sky, Giorgio Armani’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection painted a serene, aquatic scene. “Charmani” was the theme of the event, which came right on the heels of Armani’s grand opening of “Emotions of the Athletic Body” – a photography exhibit that celebrated the brand’s long-standing relationship to the sports universe. This calm, contemplative collection evoked images of mermaids, night swims, and cool summer evenings with a lustrous display of glittering technical fabrics, gleaming watercolor prints, and mesmerizing lengths of fringe.

For Spring/Summer 2017, Armani set his sights on a new suiting silhouette that paired unstructured blazers with a surprising mix of bubble-hemmed shorts. Jackets were done in a variety of lengths and fits, with great attention paid to coruscated, ribbed surfaces, while open-faced cardigans and toppers were shown in gauzy printed fabrics in shades of indigo, midnight blue, and deep navy. A trio of romantic frocks with bubble hems and puff sleeves angled the collection toward youthful interest, but the rest of the collection felt resolutely mature.

With over 50 looks on display, Armani flexed creative muscle in the form of intricate embellishment and bohemian construction, which saw many of the pieces wrapped, knotted, and draped in elegant forms. Micro crystals, appliqués, and webbed accents continued to advance Armani’s textural experiment, adding drama to the equation. While other Milanese catwalks obsessed with developing trends, Armani’s lightweight, shimmery procession offered a peaceful oasis for the world-weary fashion lover.
