The Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 2008 collection, shown today in Milan, was a little bit Gatsby, a little bit rock 'n' roll. Gauze abounded, as did the occasional skull cap. These are clothes to be worn when you want to listen to Stevie Nicks, read F. Scott Fitzgerald, and then head off to go do naughty things. Except for that toga, though. That just looked silly and ill-proportioned. A gallery, below. (All images via AP.)

DISCUSSION

Armani has a lot of 1920s and 30s influence in his designs which really appeals to me. This collection is no exception. Some of the slate-grey and puce colors may not be the most flattering thing ever, but on the whole there are some really pretty (and functional) pieces.
