I hope the finale gowns do justice for this set. They're beautiful, wearable and all but
they all look like normal office wear. What happened? Last season's luna-inspired
collection was as mystical as it was awesome.

Looks like RTW collection,where's the couture buzz?
Looks more like Gucci+Chanel...

No, it's not the most exciting HC collection but there are some absolutely gorgeous pieces here.

A lot of this looks like everyday/office wear, and a woman who can afford these kinds of clothes does not work at an office, for a similar price wouldn't you want something more oppulant like what Givenchy showed in their display? I like understated as much as the next person but for couture prices these pieces are very bland. Which is a shame because for the past 4-5 season Armani Prive has had some of the strongest collections presented during couture week.

The tailoring is probably immaculate and the production quality is probably awesome but there's nothing here that sets this collection apart from his RTW collections. I mean essentially these are just very flashy business outfits.
Never the less, VERY beautiful.

At least it built up to a stronger look -- one more definitive of Armani Prive. I like how
the final pieces all had that Balmain~esque showiness but with streamlined designs and
impeccable tailoring. Nothing innovative really but it exudes a kind of casual elegance
that is sure to be a favorite of the stars in the red carpet.

I think if he had not used pants in the collection some of the looks would not have been so casual, although he has always done pant and made it look very Haute Couture. Maybe its just a casual collection. I think the casual nature of this collection shows a different side to the couture woman, some of the looks give off the feeling that the collection is for the everyday working woman who wears couture.

What I love about Armani Prive is that it brings his qualities of minimalism to couture which is something we dont see often. I think his way of being dramtic and showy is in the fabric choices, draping, and deatils like pleats and tucks that make his garments stand out in a sea of dramtics collections. Even though it maybe bit too casual for my tastes, I love every bit of this collection.

Those final glitzy gowns are so copied from many other brands:I see Versace,Balmain,Dolce & Gabbana,Gucci...yes they're beautiful but nothing really groundbreaking,you could find any of those in many RTW shows
