Giorgio Armani was one of the many designers that created the broad-shouldered, well-tailored “Wolf Of Wall Street” look for men in the 1980s. That signature aesthetic led to new tropes of masculinity that fashion still uses to this day. In his spring 2019 menswear show, Armani turned this look upside-down and inside-out. Some of the familiar codes were still there, like the double-breasted outerwear and the wide-legged trousers in stark greys and navy blues. The broad shoulders, however, were traded in for a more relaxed silhouette that’s perfect for men of leisure. The jackets were rounder instead of precisely geometric, and the inclusion of the slinky silk shirts are far from the “strong businessman” look of thirty years ago. With this relaxed approach, Armani achieved a new sense of modernity to his famous classics.
