Designer Giorgio Armani Italian

Not on view

Giorgio Armani exemplifies the words simplicity and luxury. Known for his easy lines, he introduces interest in design by introducing fine textiles and subtle embellishment that doesn't appear fussy. His design influence coming from his impeccably tailored suits for men, Armani's women's designs also reflect the designer's unstructured style. This simple Armani jumpsuit looks like a gown, but the many panels that form the bottom puddle where it is bifurcated, to form a harem-style fashion. The result looks draped, when it is in fact a magnificently tailored garment. The one shouldered bodice, along with the addition of a shawl draped at the same shoulder creates a classically inspired design scheme.
