At 84 years old, you’d think that Giorgio Armani might one day run out of ideas, but he is nothing if not prolific and prolifically talented. As the bookend to a week of shows in Milan, Armani is where editors, VIPs, and other invited guests go to rest their weary bones and drink in nourishing, beautiful designs that resist fashion’s varied whims. His collections are typically soothing, but they were especially so for Spring/Summer 2019. Themed around “The Shape of Color”, Armani served a color palette so serene it was practically therapeutic. Moving from smoky silvers to icy blues to frosted pinks to iridescent aquas, color in a multitude of soft, malleable forms was the focus of the presentation.

For the magpie eye, the collection held ample allure. Thanks to shimmering and gleaming fabrications, Armani’s clothes and accessories possessed a lustrous sparkle. Rendered with such a light touch, everything on the runway seemed ephemeral, like if you were to try to touch it, it would evaporate like a dream upon waking. The enchantment began with a series of sleek dresses and jackets done in silver, which were followed by sheer trousers made with a soft, webby fabric, translucent tracksuits trimmed with opalescent sequins, embellished bubble-hem tops, and desert sky-printed harem trousers. His suits were also swishy and soft, upholstered in amazing holographic fabrics. All of the shimmer cast a spell, one that was difficult to shake off after Armani’s particularly rapturous finale of peacock-hued, prismatic dresses and jumpsuits.
