Armani MEN'S collection for Spring/Summer 2009

GIORGIO ARMANI launches MEN'S collection for Spring/Summer 2009. Fusion of cultures, crossover of tastes, interplay of contrasts: creating an unusual equilibrium between jackets that verge on the formal and comfortable lightweight trousers in shantung. In this juxtaposition of styles that brings to the city a relaxed and elegant savoir vivre, the jacket – always deconstructed but perfectly tailored – favours Prince of Wales checks and chalk stripes, fabrics that may seem traditional but actually emphasise the precise structure of the garment.

Worn over a double breasted waistcoat, maybe with a loose untucked shirt or a light chemise in the oriental manner. Perfectly in tune with the lightest of trousers, varying in style from the Indian, to the Balinese or Malaysian, sometimes with printed patterns, always in generous dimensions.

A change of direction is also apparent in the traditional Armani classics, featuring darts for a slim midriff and legs that taper lightly towards the hem, imparting élan to the figure: an effect that is reinforced by the reappraised dimensions of the jacket, slightly shorter and slimmer than recently.

Replacing the belt, a casually knotted scarf at the waist adds a witty touch of nonchalance. Subtle shades of colour prevail, including a green that is almost grey, a grey that approaches beige, putty, twine, with softly blended hints of violet and rust, bringing a more intense and stimulating aesthetic quality to this collection.

Even the knitwear, including jackets with the relaxed fit of cardigans, displays the same cultural mix, presented in hopsacks and carpet fabrics. Scarves sit lightly on the shoulders – epitomising the fluid and dashing look of the season. Shoes come in a choice of snakeskin, crocodile and woven hopsack, or laced in the oriental style for the ultimate in lightness.
