GIORGIO ARMANI... Let's hear it for the Boys Autumn/Winter 2011/2012

Goodbye to nylon and quilting, this is the year for wool in a range of treatments (for instance boiled wool, in a precious combination with alpaca), nubuck style sheepskin and leather for a reassuring sense of solidity, maintained through a range of jackets in streaked wool with needle punch effects that seem scratched into the pile. This treatment recurs throughout the accessories, shoulder bags, bags and shoes, which as ever reference and emphasize the key themes of the collection.

Among the most innovative designs of this season, trousers that unite the casual and sporty – knit edging at the hem, which can be concealed by the full length of the leg – with the elegant aplomb of the tailored darts at the waist, absolutely typical of the Armani style.
