The Giorgio Armani Spring 2012 collection is somewhat reminiscent of the Prada show this season -- not in terms of the actual clothing itself, but in the sense that like Miuccia Prada, Mr. Armani was also incredibly focused on presenting a collection of ladylike, elegant clothing.
The Giorgio Armani Spring 2012 collection features silk and satin more prominently than any other designer has used this season. Rather than focusing on skirts for the Spring collection, Armani presented paper-thin trousers adorned with a slit going up the front.
Giorgio Armani described his Spring 2012 woman as "a pearl of a lady" who is "sweet, but also very determined." The Giorgio Armani Spring 2012 collection is especially interesting due to the fact that the Italian designer paired his evening dresses with flat shoes and saved heels for daytime. That is a trend that I can get on board with.
