Giorgio Armani’s summer collection delivers a chic warm-weather wardrobe
Winter may have only just begun working its secret ministry across this Great Southern Land, but that hasn’t stopped many of us from dreaming of sun-soaked beaches and balmy winds.
In order to help bring those fantasies a step closer to fruition, Giorgio Armani has unveiled its chic warm-weather wardrobe collection, offering the perfect wardrobe for those hot summer nights.
Aptly dubbed the Summer Wardrobe, the collection encompasses everything you need to feel cool and polished on even the hottest days.
Whether you are spending the summer in Europe or Morocco, these lightweight cotton blazers and trousers, ultrafine jersey T-shirts and sleek accessories will make you feel instantly at ease.
Though simple at first glance, pieces like the Panama straw hat, braided belt and leather penny loafer espadrilles (main image) feature upgraded details like subtle navy crocodile-print leather accents - an Armani signature even in the designer’s more buttoned-up clothing and accessories.
This sense of quiet luxury reigns supreme throughout the rest of the collection (with pieces available at both Giorgio Armani boutiques and online), like in the seemingly basic swim shorts embellished with the designer’s discreet branding and windbreakers and drawstring trousers made of water-repellent seersucker and water-repellent cashmere (which, when worn together, make for a thoroughly upgraded tracksuit).
Done in a palette of crisp whites, muted creams, navies and khaki, each piece has been designed to pair together effortlessly - making getting dressed on sweltering mornings or packing for that well-deserved summer getaway a breeze.
Silhouettes are all relaxed: think just-roomy-enough trousers, slightly oversized jackets, and relaxed polos that are designed to keep you cool and comfortable without sacrificing an inch of style. And in true Armani form, the collection reads simultaneously timeless and current, fashion-forward and classic - exactly how you’d hope you’d look in summer-vacation photos when you flip through them decades from now.
