Lightness was the key motif for Giorgio Armani
's new Resort collection. It came across not just in the dresses—a wispy thing in organza embellished allover with laser-cut flowers or an embroidered V-neck shift as sheer as a beach cover-up—but also in the tailoring. The silk gauze of a double-breasted pantsuit put the focus on the unstructured silhouette Armani has been perfecting for decades. An elastic-waist navy jacket and neoprene-cuffed silk pants lent other looks in his brief lineup a sporty mien. That was counterbalanced by a renewed emphasis on ultra-polished accessories. Flat cap-toe sandals with ankle straps looked particularly of-the-moment.
