My invitation to Emporio Armani`s Fall / Winter 11 / 12 show.
The venue: the Armani headquarters in Milan, where a very smart & minimalist chic fashion crowd gathered on the foggy sunday moring of january 16th 2011.
A location in minimalist, grey design with wide spaces and metal highlights.
The foyer saw lots of sunglasses being worn indoor (so Milan!).
Vladimir Roitfeld entering the show (Giovanna was with him).
The virgin runway before the show.
The show, opening with Golf looks...
...moving on to realistic, urban menswear for the great Metropolis.
My view from row 12.
The way out through the holy halls.
Style.com`s Tim Blanks waiting to be picked up after the show.
Giovanna Battaglia outside...
...with her Fendi purse but without jacket at chilly 3 °C...
...by The Sartorialist, Scott Schuman.
An impressive show in all aspects.
