This collection is so beautiful that doesn't even look like Armani!

Not as good as the last collection but still striking.

It's really quite stunning. It looks so well put together and so absolutely classy.

Armani really dominated this season, it's so incredibly sharp and the frosty oranges, faint pinks and black nail it.

this is quite refreshing from a usually very conservative designer.

Love it love it love it to bits. It seems it has some japanese influences, which perfectly meshes with the Armani aesthetic. I love everything, even the styling is quite good.

Im surprised of how sexy the looks are (and Im talking about Armani!)

I really love how much he's been playing with color - real color - in his Privé collections. For someone so famous for using griege, navy and black he really does know his way around brights, and he doesn't seem at all tentative when using them.

I don't know that I love this as much as I ended up loving his last collection, but it's still gorgeous. I think it's the really long, lean lines that speak to me the most. Some of the gowns, however, aren't up to his usual standard.

I hate the whole oriental look with a passion, it always looks so overly exaggerated and banal. TBH I always associate Oriental collections with a lack of inspiration/ideas (LV SS11). I really don't care for Armani Prive or Armani and this collection will not make me change my mind anytime soon.

Really? Orientalism (in this case Chinoiserie and Japonisme) is more banal or predictable than any other widely used, constantly recurring trend?

It may not be the most exciting thing, but at least the results are almost always pretty to look at.

I agree that this collection is very beautiful, but I still hold my opinion on Oriental Collections in general.

^ I wasn't trying to get you to change your opinion, I was simply questioning the strangeness of saying that Asian-inspired collections are the result of having a lack of inspiration.

I just believe it's too specific a reference to really create something original. In a mild way it's more costume-esque then prêt-à-porter. And like the Orient, Space Age/Extreme Futurism is the same being that it's too out of place to have a natural home on the street. Maybe I just feel this way because I don't like it, but I would never wear it or suggest it.
