The moon out right now looks suspiciously like the Armani moon, the one that rose over the runway this afternoon. The show began with 'daybreak,' according to the collection notes, though the set timeline was a little confusing in terms of semantics: dawn or dusk? Whatever the position of the sun, it meant wool jackets over loose or high waisted trousers, black velvet and shades of baby blue, pink and lavender silks, even monochromatic wool trouser suits and shantung dresses shown on two models walking side by side.

Gemini reference in front of the night sky? Seconds later, in 'the day', pastel embroidered cardigans with black trim came out as did strange jewelled veils, thin black gauzes covering the models faces. It seemed the show was going to end with a strapless shimmery pink jumpsuit, but then, of course, it was some kind of star shower with structured separates, hotter pink and spiky feathered headpieces, more black velvet and then evening dresses with an encore of veils and those jumelles again looking like matching Pierrots.
