For Fall/Winter 2019, a blend of menswear and womenswear flooded the Giorgio Armani runway – 103 looks filled with new ideas. Dubbed “Rhapsody in Blue”, it was slightly less rhapsodic than you might expect, and more studied — laser-focused, even — on the interplay between experimental fabrications and every shade of blue you can imagine.

There were inky blue velvet coats interrupted by rippling trim, blue-black neoprene/mesh jackets, ombre blue parks made from bunches and gathers of fabric, watercolor blue suits, and gray-blue tuxedo trousers with built-in peplum at the hips. The list goes on forever.

Amplifying his seemingly endless parade of intricately designed, progressive blue looks were jodhpur trousers that were pegged through the calf and trimmed with a smart row of buttons. Equestrian and clever. Oh, but the rhapsody in blue kept coming. Armani also showed velvet swing jackets, rose-embossed toppers, gypsy blouses with massive sleeves, and more. For evening, his jodhpurs were transformed into jumpsuits, topped with fur-and-feather sleeve accents, while jet black velvets and sheer panels were whipped into an array of lithe evening gowns.

After so many decades in fashion, Giorgio Armani is still experimenting. That fact alone deserves a standing ovation.

After so many decades in fashion, Giorgio Armani is still experimenting. That fact alone deserves a standing ovation. Never satisfied with resting on his laurels – and as far as laurels go, they fill a football field – Armani keeps pushing forward with new ideas. He still has so many, so much to say, so much to do. If all he did for the rest of his career was red carpet, he’d still be prolific.
