Recently I attended the Giorgio Armani Fall 2012 press preview.

Armani are known for their subdued colour palette, but I was welcomed by bright pops of orange, pink and lavender.

The beauty, as always, is in the detail.

Hand-embroidered red-carpet-worthy dresses hung from the racks alongside bow-accented colour-block dresses, sleek black dresses and an orange fur coat.

Below are close ups of the accessories, which we don’t get to see so clearly on the runway.

I fell in love with the embroidered clutches, the beaded necklaces and the colourful totes.
