Lady Gaga will be collaborating with Giorgio Armani once again for her artist’s Born This Way Ball tour, which kicks off in Seoul on April 27th .
The designer has created four custom looks which has been crafted with couture savoir faire using latex, metal, studs and PVC with each outfit completed with detailed, other-worldly accessories.
Look one is a black bodice made of tubular PVC elements connected with metal studs, with mirrored metal inserts to define a curvaceous design. The ensemble is highlighted by a matching headpiece, robotic thigh-high boots, and exaggerated gloves ending in mirrored nails.
Look two is a shiny black grid-patterned PVC bodice with matching headpiece and embroidered ankle boots. Highlights include shoulders outlined by a play of sharp spikes, black Swarovski jet crystals and flowing fringe, creating a moving architecture.
Look three has to be my favourite look. It’s another black bodice with transparent Plexiglas, black crystals and luminous studs create a Cubist composition of abstract guitars. The matching headpiece follows in the shape of a keyboard; the boots are black vinyl.
I can’t wait to see Gaga rock this.
Finally look four I can picture the singer wearing during one of the slower numbers.
The long tunic with leg-o-mutton sleeves is made of skin-toned latex. Luminous PVC elements create flashes of synthetic light inside the garment. The same avant garde lighting is featured on the triangle decorating the chest, on the headpiece, and on the platform of the matching latex ankle boots.
Which is your favourite look?
