He favours lesser know girls to let the clothes do the talking. This season however, Coco Rocha - ELLE's Model of the Year - opened the show. And did the clothes still talk? Without a doubt.
Movement was at the heart of the collection with flowing silks, velvets and chiffons in light pinks, pewter and black. Mr Armani continued the trend he started with his Emporio show by teaming long skirt layers over trousers. Those trousers were cut off at the ankle with a turn-up to show off that erogenous zone.
Before the show began, a film for Armani's Water for Life campaign was played; a charity bringing clean water to those in need. The collection too had a liquid quality through shell discs dripping from jackets and the plexiglass block heels. A young and vibrant show.
