Armani Privé Spring 2008 Couture

Interesting pleating and use of pinstripes as well as shoulder volume.

Tiny woven checks and more accessorized detailing.

Tiny cap sleeves, dimensional patch pockets and another lantern skirt.

Intricate pleating; details below.

Applied triangles add a touch of whimsy.

An ethereal, yet very modern look. Tracery beading shown below.

More pleating and more of the interesting cylindrical decorations.

More pleating, triangles and stripes.

What a wonderful skirt.

Slight asymmetry in this jacket seems very fresh.

I keep coming back to enjoy these images. I'm not seeing the sleek Armani of the past, but I like the experimentation he's showing right now.

Moiré, if it was edible it would make my mouth water. Thanks for posting all those delicious designs! I'm writing a scene for my novel "Forgiveness" in which the female main character has just arrived in Paris and is pleased to note she can wear the afternoon dress she's fashioned from night-sky blue moiré. And yes she was (as I am ;-)) inspired by Dior!
