Armani Gliding Drape

Just about the best example ever of the beautiful glide and drape of classic Giorgio Armani suits: the impeccably dressed trio of Helena Christensen, Carla Bruni, Monica Bellucci for Vogue Italia, July 1995. This photo was taken by Michel Comte, a Swiss artist, photographer, who was extremely influential in 1980’s and 1990’s fashion and styling photography. Interestingly I have discovered an old Giorgio Armani suit in my wardrobe, purchased circa 1998 during a rush of blood to the head, that has some of these styling notes – the wider lapels, the longer-length jackets. Sadly it did not make me look as good as these models.
