Day to Night Couture – Armani Privé’s fall 2012 collection was inspired by day to night dressing for an outing of pure sophistication. Designer Giorgio Armani opened the show with his signature menswear inspired tailoring which then transformed into elegant, floor-length gowns in straight silhouettes. The daytime dressing borrowed soft hues of blue, lilac and mauve while night embraced inky black, midnight blue and metallic accents. Crystal embroidered veils covered models’ faces as they hit the catwalk in body conscious shapes that were drapey yet sensuous all at once. Armani saved the drama for last with a stunning array of black gowns in stone embroidered velvet or silks like starlight twinkling across the night sky.
