78 year old Giorgio Armani clearly knows that the under 30 somethings have a preference for the layered look. Of course in Mr Armani's hands, there's nothing slacker about it. He prefers a polished silk peplem over an flared tafetta skirt and a sheer ruched tube skirt peeking out down below. Those clingy sheer body veils (including a legging version) were put under everything from ruffled short dresses, crisp cotton skirts, to fancy cocktail dresses featuring explosive, glittering palm frond prints. Some news you can use: rubberized rafia and lurex lace are Armani's new sartoral tools of choice.
