Silence, emphasised by the indecipherable mystery of nature. A sense of expectation, suspended between the sea’s liquid surface and the denseness of an island shaped by the wind and the deep tremors of a volcano. Focussing on the surprising landscapes that reveal the unseen ruggedness of Lipari and Stromboli, oscar-winning director Paolo Sorrentino makes a film that introduces the world of Giorgio Armani.
It is a world that is, as always, unexpected; one that continuously rewrites its codes, gives a new soul to its colours and updates silhouettes by establishing a different equilibrium.
Everything seems rebuilt – the forms and proportions of jackets, shorts that appear to be small skirts, and trousers that taper and are paired with uniform-like jackets with simple lines, made from double-sided fabrics.
The collection offers a new way of experiencing monochromatic fabrics – wool, double-washed silk, technical cady silk and lined georgette – that possess a naturalness devoid of any exoticism. Small silver and bronze reflections found on clothing and accessories illuminate the range of greige, powder grey, blue, white and copper colours. The tones find an echo in the landscapes of the movie, where a man and a woman lie entwined, overcome and motionless, in an apparent stillness that recalls sleep and dreams. Where everything is renewed.
