Ikat Luxe - Armani's Privé Couture Spring 2020

Georgio Armani said of his Privé Couture Spring show last month: "The idea of this show originated from a memory. In 1990 I used an ikat blanket I found in a flea market to tailor three jackets for the spring summer collection. What I liked about this particular technique was the blurred effect of the motifs, the fact that the decorations were never well defined and I conveyed this concept by concealing the prints, filtering them through different layers".

He went on to explain "It is a fabric that I have always loved, although I have never used it as much as this season."

The collection, combining the glory of ikat with Armani's renowned tailoring, was masterful.
