Giorgio Armani Black Velvet Cut Out Ribbon Corset Jacket
Italian designer Giorgio Armani is renowned for his sophisticated aesthetic and exquisite attention to detail. He began his fashion career in window dressing at a Milan department store before gaining recognition for his expertly tailored suits. His designs tend to feel classic even when they push the boundaries of fashion, which resonates with his philosophy on style. As the designer once said, “elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered.”
This incredible jacket embodies Armani at its finest. Done entirely in black velvet, the jacket begins with a deep V neckline and long bell sleeves that reach the wrists. The sleeve detail is complemented by a wide, beautifully draped collar that falls past the shoulders, adding a note of luxurious drama and a nice visual contrast with the revealing bodice.
The body of the jacket is made up of horizontal velvet ribbons that are held together with vertical strips of velvet that accentuate the natural lines of the body. The vertical strips are boned to provide structure and create a feminine, corset-shaped silhouette that is familiar and new at once.
