Giorgio Armani named his Emporio collection "Little Winter Follies", and one certain element of folly was for sure the knee britches or bermudas, sometimes paired with skirts and others with dresses. The whole collection gave out the impression that Giorgio's inspiration came from long back in the 18th century, and the use of velvet made that even stronger. Models were fresh faced, and stormed down the catwalk in two, having a mysterious grin on their faces, like smiling at us conspiratorially. The upbeat was amazing, and I loved the fact that the models were getting out there in pairs, and sometimes in fours-it gave the staging an absolute girlish glee. Some of the latest sparkly jackets were my favorite pieces but the collection was so not-Armani, as we are used to more subtle and wearable clothes. In general, he showed pieces that are difficult for a 2012 woman to see herself in but hey, life is about taking risks and experiencing new limits.
