Giorgio Armani Spring 2008 Collection: All That Glitters Isn't Gold - It's Fashion

Like a cozy pair of slippers or a comfy fleece nightgown on a cold winter's night, Giorgio Armani is fashion's reliable purveyor of style. His Spring '08 collection was peppered with influences from the 1920s, India and the Middle East. While his day-wear pieces, mostly comprised of silk tanks, cropped jackets, beaded cardigans and tied-at-the-knee trousers in a muted color palette of greys, creams, taupes and varying shades of blue, were sensual and wearable, it's the collection's evening-wear featuring beaded cocktail dresses and sheer printed gowns draped over harem-like pants that felt the most 'inspired'.
Armani compliments his romantic outfits with chic, detailed bags. A structured handbag perfect for a lunch date with its' printed exterior, bamboo frame top, rope handles and satin whipstitching is a true work of art. Evening bags ranging from classic clutches and wristlets to miniature handbags received the royal treatment with crystal appliqués, whimsical "starfish" clasps and copious amounts of beading detail. My personal favorites, shimmering pleated handbags adorned with jeweled clasps, are the perfect example of what Giorgio Armani does best - combine art and fashion to create very beautiful things.
