Menswear AW16 Milan: Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani wrapped his latest menswear collection in a swathe of luxe layers to ensure that his customers won’t be going cold nor out of mode come wintertime. Pelts of fur, lofty leathers and fuzzy wools with long fibres were his building blocks, fixed together with the immaculate cut of standout cardigan jackets and waistcoats.




Colourways remained raw in their earthiness throughout and textures followed the general trend in Milan of the more the merrier, with tender touches of velvet and swirls of other outerwear fabrics that would supersede the reliance upon fur earlier on in the collection.

This calmed things down considerably and ensured that AW16 didn’t veer into any extreme territory. Mr Armani, rest assured, is still the ultimate virtuoso when it comes to the act of sophisticating glamour.




As the collection, a chock-full one with total number of looks coming in at roughly 70, continued a handsome picking of Pre-Fall looks were paraded alongside the menswear, becoming their female counterparts. This idealised wardrobe for him and her being realised so well put to sleep any doubts that Armani doesn’t know how to put together a chic outfit anymore.

Quite the opposite, while his menswear has its place reserved in the heart of a certain kind of internationally well-connected gentlemen, there are no doubts that this gentlemen isn’t going to go majorly out of style anytime soon.
