Giorgio Armani

Armani titled his fall-winter 2016 collection ‘Black Velvet’, named after the material that was so prominently featured in the runway show. Although black was a main color, Armani also embraced a variety of hues from moody taupes to dreamy pastels. The silhouette is relaxed with long jackets layered over cropped trousers flared at the ankle.

Around halfway through the lineup, Armani introduced rich florals, painterly in design with pajama style tops and bottoms. For evening wear, the Armani woman sparkles with strapless, black velvet gowns embellished with a touch of sequins and featuring cutout details. If an event calls for pants, there are still quite a few options with his signature suit work.

A clash of two cultures. It was a familiar theme for DSquared2’s Dan and Dean Caten who presented their fall-winter 2016 collection on the last day of Milan Fashion Week. Similar to autumn ’15 which was American Indian influenced, the Canadian designers focused on Victorian meets samurai with a spotlight on military themes.

As a warrior, the DSquared2 woman wore camouflage prints, cropped admiral jackets and samurai inspired furs cuts with intarsia in armor-like blocks. Underneath each look was a printed bodysuit that at first glance looks like tattoo sleeves. Softening the warrior look, A-line skirts, sequined bibs and capelets are added. A tasselled earring and beaded stiletto sandals serve as the finishing touches
