Italian designer Giorgio Armani had the last major slot of Milan Fashion Week on 2 March to showcase the new collection of his main Giorgio Armani line.

Armanis look was one of muted elegance in hues of blues, greys, and metallics.

The designer, who turns 81 this year, sent models down the catwalk in graceful tailored trouser suits in light wool.

Printed silk was used for trousers as well as light blouses and long fringed scarves.

Evening dresses were sequinned and long, with standout black panels running down from hip to hem.

Armanis accessories included rounded removable collars which adorned both suits and dresses.

The Milan womens fashion show comes to a close on Monday, with the focus of the fashion world now falling on Paris.
