The name of the game at Armani Privé? Extreme femininity — in the most futuristic way possible. The 2011 Spring Couture collection in its entirety stuns in jewel tones and sculptural silhouettes, but it's the details that deserve our full attention. Pay close attention to the white, triangle toppers, the small metallic berets that pair with every ensemble, and the netted masks that mimic the silvery scales of strapless column dresses. But, even in its modernity and circus-bright aesthetic, Armani never loses sight of a woman's curves. Dresses are body-hugging, bust-lines are low, and jewels are worn as tops. Slinky, sparkly textures and bold hues take over on everything — it's quirky-chic and exotic new-age at its best. Click through to see all the amazing details.
The cuts are immaculate, the colors are soft, and the result is a collection that's simultaneously ethereal and completely modern. Karl Lagerfeld's 2011 Spring/Summer looks balance light-as-air confections with the structure of jackets, tailored trousers, and the label's signature tweed. Among the standouts are silvery, metallic suits in sheer fabrics; a delicate, floral, and bow-adorned baby-doll dress over pants; and pointy-toe flats paired with everything from skinny pants to a halter-style maxi dress. The feel is deliciously girlie — ballerina-inspired, but still grown up; a balancing act that Karl delivers flawlessly, as you'd expect. Click through for all the gorgeous looks.
