The Giorgio Armani womenswear capsule collection for NET-A-PORTER that includes trouser suits and flowing evening gowns, is now available exclusively on net-a-porter.com. The collection includes 16 items combining bold black with delicate prints. Giorgio Armani joins the likes of Cartier, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Lanvin and Stella McCartney.
“The name Giorgio Armani needs little introduction. A towering figure in Italian fashion, he dressed celebrities for the red carpet before appointing stylists for events was common practice, and today counts Charlotte Rampling and Cate Blanchett as followers of his timelessly chic look. Shop our exclusive capsule of exquisite silk gowns, jumpsuits and blouses,” said net-a-porter.com
Giorgio Armani x Net-A-Porter capsule include a crepe-paneled jacquard coat, embellished tulle and silk-organza gown, silk-satin bustier top, strapless silk midi dresses, silk-crepe straight-leg pants, and blouses. The cocktail attire is complemented with
suede-trimmed python point-toe flats and python pumps.
Part of the exclusive Giorgio Armani party capsule, this embellished satin-trimmed silk-blend crepe jumpsuit (£5,000) is cut from silk-blend crepe and finished with contrasting cuffs printed with a traditional Japanese landscape scene. It has tuxedo-style satin lapels and sharply pressed creases through the front. “We like how the sequin embellishments add just a hint of sparkle,” commented net-a-porter.com
This floor-grazing tulle and silk-organza gown is beautifully draped from Mulberry silk-organza and printed with a landscape scene that’s punctuated with beads and sequins inspired by traditional Japanese paintings. It has a plunging neckline and sheer tulle panels at the side and back, so the wardrobe stylists suggest underpinning it with a self-adhesive bra.
Giorgio Armani’s embellished ruffled silk peplum jacket is tailored for a slim fit from luxurious Mulberry silk. It has beaded satin cuffs that are printed with a Japanese landscape scene. Wear yours for evening with these pants from the same collection.
“This timeless collection — which will sell exclusively on Net-A-Porter during the month of November — centers around an oriental landscape motif. As the starting point for this capsule, the landscape pattern is transposed onto jacquards and washed prints in a collection that is often highly feminine yet sometimes shows a more masculine side,” wrote uk.fashionnetwork.com
