Red, White, and Black: Giorgio Armani Privé Fall 2014 Couture Collection

By Katie Chen

July 10, 2014

The way that Giorgio Armani is able to take a single element and innovate it time and time again is uncanny. His fall 2014 Armani Privé couture collection is no different. The use of the color red and heavily experimenting with textures and materials, highlight the sartorial expertise and clean lines that Armani is known for. The collection was inspired by the designer’s love and appreciation for subtle Japanese motifs, like that of a traditional lacquer box, and stuck to a color scheme of red, white, and black.

High-waisted shorts and A-line pea coats were a staple, playing up various patterns to offset the limit in color. Mini-suits featuring the high-waisted shorts and slimmed jackets with 3/4 sleeves and no lapels added to the minimal approach. The A-line cuts and delicate pleating highlighted the fashion house’s ever-present fine tailoring.

The collection also played heavily with textures. There was mohair, tulle, and glossy enamel polka dots. In one look, Armani employed three different textures from a ribbon top with a thin mesh underneath, a stiff, cylindrical bodice, and a voluminous skirt. Veils also played a large part in the collection, growing larger-than-life as the show went on, eventually reaching to the end of the floor with oversied enamel polka dots.

The last look summed up the collection perfectly: a mohair bubble-shaped jacket top, with a solid red, fishtail gown on the bottom. Seeing as it’s Giorgio Armani’s birthday tomorrow, this collection was a great gift to us.
