Armani Privé - Paris Haute Couture Fall 2009
(PARIS) The Armani client deserves a bit of rock and roll, n'est-ce pas? At the Privé show, Mr. Armani showed a collection with a bit of sass. The trouser-centric take on evening dressing provides couture week with one of its recurring themes, and this season, the idea became jazzed up with a healthy dose of attitude. The pagoda shoulder made several cameos on tuxedo jackets, which were paired with a looser version of the straight-leg and tapered trousers Mr. Armani has toyed with recently. The rhinestone embellishment found on most looks in the form of an asymmetrical zipper or even a v-necked bodice made everything a little more rollicking. Front-row guests Cate Blanchett and Megan Fox represented two distinct sides of la vie privée-one respectively classic, the other endowed with a bit of a wild side. An animalier motif provided alternative daywear options, most memorably in an unstructured car coat. A series of 4 entirely jeweled pantsuits closed the show, underscoring Armani's insistence on his own particular brand of innovation.
