In a season full of change, one thing was constant: Giorgio Armani remained the anchor of Milan Fashion Week, closing the four days of previews on Monday.
While many of his colleagues took runway breaks or contemplated merging their menswear and womenswear previews going forward, it was Armani who got the last word, this time holding sway alone on the final day. Still, Armani lamented, not for the first time, that it was time to shake that up.
The four days of menswear shows boasted a raft of celebrity sightings. Jessica Chastain was spotted backstage at Prada, wearing a floral sundress, along with Milla Jovovich, while Ethan Peck was head-to-toe Salvatore Ferragamo in a tan linen suit and Tramezza lace-up shoes.
Kevin Spacey and Ricky Martin took front row seats for Armani’s show, with Spacey sharing comments throughout the runway show with the designer’s niece, Roberta Armani.
Spacey wore a dark tailored suit while Martin opted for a more casual zipper-front tunic-style light blue top over gray pleated trousers and a pair of Armani sunglasses.
“I’ve been protected by him in many ways,” Martin said of Armani going into the show. “I’m very happy to be here and celebrate his art.”
