Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Stepping Out In Sync At Giorgio Armani

-------

A few days ago, we called your attention to Miuccia Prada’s his-’n'-hers dressing, at her Spring 2011 men’s and women’s shows. Looks like there’s one famous couple that listened. Armani fans George Clooney and his girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, hit the designer’s runway show in Milan today in corresponding suits. Mr. Clooney opted for a peak-lapel number in dark navy with a rakish, tie-free black shirt, while his lady friend chose a shawl-collared one-button black tux with piped trousers. On some duos, this might seem too matchy-matchy for comfort, but we think George and Elisabetta have got the paired look down pat; the different proportions of their two looks, and the feminine jeweled touches on Canalis’, keep them from looking the same. Could it be that the couple that suit-shops together, stays together? Let us know what you think in the comments, below.

    I’m sorry, her’s should have had a dress under that jacket. One with a long slit up the side to show leg. That is how it’s done at The Shows. For Pet’s Sake, this is Milan.

    Depending on how you wear it, the look can be done well. Personally, i think they rocked it. If you can do it, go for it, worst that could happen is you hate it and never do it again, but I feel like this adds something to the experience of men and women shopping together and both of them actually shopping. So in short, LOVE the look, well done.

    If you hadn’t told me these outfits were meant to be worn as a ‘couple’ I would have thought that the two just happen to like the same twist on classic black. Which is not terribly unusual, I would think – I do see couples doing bespoke together, it makes sense that one bird does the hard work of styling the house more often then not, and it sort of shows when that happens [good sign? / bad sign?]. When that’s threatening to go overboard it is assumed to be the tailor’s job to make sure the pair doesn’t get a lovebird look [male and female - same difference; 'guess it doesn't matter if one mates for life, right? - by some Darwinian logic applicable to parakeets, of course]. A least, this is how is done in this neck of the woods – might be different elsewhere, big world. You get the drift…

    Just a thought.
