Milan: A visit to the Armani Silos

Hi there:

I have been in Milan and the environs for 10 days now and hope to write a trip report when I get home.

In the meantime, I am posting my photos from this extraordinary exhibit, as, if you are interested in fashion, it falls into the category of 'worth a trip to Milan just to see it'. It is the best of its like that I have seen, and is a permanent exhibition.

Here is the website:
https://www.armanisilos.com/


Here are my photos, but only go there if you love fashion, as there are 315 photos and a lot of close-ups on beadwork

Regards .. Ger

I saw the pics. Very nice. (TDudette, try again. It look a long time to load....)

I'm not a big Armani fan, but I love-love-love the embroidered and beaded pieces. More like art than clothing.

Hi Ger. I'm going to look at your photos later tonight when I have some free time . . . but maybe post a hand full of them here on the thread -- to whet the appetite so to speak

Weird, my post was needing approval by moderators- unlike the new poster klankf that can post 4 lots of spam unmoderated - and my post is still not up, but it ‘looks’ like I’ve posted.... ‘last post Adelaidean’

I did not make it to this exhibit on my trip to Milan so thank you for posting all the great pics! Beautiful. I took a Fashion walking tour while there and the docent spoke a lot about Mr. Armani, how he got his start etc. I particularly like his simple women's suits.

Finally got a chance to view the whole album. Just WOW

Since it is a permanent exhibit - hopefully some of us will be able to see it in the future.

Tried again and it popped right up. Got the Shutterfly page the first time. Although I didn't love many, it was nice to see the individualism in the designs. And yes, the beading was gorgeous. I loved the cut of the white jacket with the dragonfly pin. Thanks, Ger.
