Giorgio Armani landed in Tokyo on 24 May to showcase ‘Insula’, the
Italian brand’s 2020 cruise collection.

Dialogue between masculinity and femininity
The women’s silhouettes in the collection were characterised by their
fluid and vertical form: tight jackets and dusters flowed out from pronounced
shoulders, while fabrics commonly used in clean, masculine tailoring,
alternated with the washed silks of long gowns and with tortoiseshell-effect
coated jacquards. Overlapping strap fastenings on short coats further
highlighted the eternal dialogue between the masculine and the feminine. The
colour palette for the women’s collection ranged from neutrals to brown to
blue, as well as a vibrant red.
For the men’s collection, soft tailoring sculpted the body and the
formality of doublebreasted suits alternated with the refined casualness of
knit jackets, pea coats and dusters. The colour palette
for the men’s collection was chocolate brown and neutrals with touches of
light blue and sand and bright pops of red and cornflower blue.
