A beautiful collection of clothes, some of the prints are not to my taste, but lovely nonetheless. I think that too many of the skirts were too tight, which is not unheard of and of course couture is not supposed to be practical and that was probably why the pacing was so slow, but after a while what was initially serene and delicate became constrained and stifling.

I say this is the perfect balance where the is a strong Asian influence while keeping things quintessential Armani.

More than the whole collection in itself, i fell in love with the details, they were great and the gowns amazing, anyway Armani Privé it's always a delightful show.
And now after watching Hqs, the looks are completely well structured and combied with the asian shapes. Loving it

this is truly beautiful collection. Love the fabrics and pattern - when Armani uses asian inspiration, he always doe his best... but, have to say, it looks more spring/summery to me than Fall Couture

Yeah, there is something about this collection that gives it a spring/summer vibe. But, there's far too much black in it for spring & summer.

Thanks for the video, Flashbang. Just like last season's gemstone-inspired collection, this collection looks better on video than in pictures. I wonder if we'll see any of these gowns at the Emmys or even at next year's Golden Globes.

I love these two looks:

I really don't like the way they used Asian elements. This is remniscent of Asian bedsheets and curtains with a little bit of Asian pornstar apparel. I've never seen respectable Asian women dress like this.

I strongly dislike this collection. There's nothing elegant about it. And he's gone from subtle and elegant use of Asian influences to over-the-top garish.

^I agree. Beautifully incorporated Asian influences is what he had before this collection.
