Sophisticated skirt and trouser suits featured the stronger shoulders that defined the eighties, and trousers were cut skinny and tight. Armani said he wanted to mix things up for autumn and give his fans great pieces that ?'disregarded fashion hierarchy' and 'could be worn independently, together , combined or not'.
The result was bold and beautiful. Lots of signature party dresses, relaxed suiting for day and night, great pants, new sloppy knit coats with eighties rolled sleeves and capes - all in a shades-of-grey palette from dove to pewter. Patent black leather caps and gloves, plus the towering ankle boots lent more edge to a gutsy, confident and chic collection.
