Armani Prive made a journey through the east for the latest collection by the fashion house. Although most of the influence seemed Chinese, references to Thai culture and Japanese design were on view as well. It all came together looking pretty half-assed with western models in pagoda shouldered ensembles. The final result appeared a bit like an odd and poorly executed caricature of East Asian culture. Think "Thoroughly Modern Millie" made for the runway. Click on images to enlarge.
