In a statement on Tuesday after his men's wear show during Milan Fashion Week, Giorgio Armani made it very clear that he is not a fan of the Prada and Dolce & Gabbana menswear collection for Spring/Summer 2012. He believes that both collection make men look ridiculous and blame the press for withholding criticism that make these brands feel that it is okay for them to continuously produce products that men won't actually wear.
“Fashion today is in the hands of the banks and of the stock market and not of their owners." said Armani. He also added that he doesn't need to go public because his company doesn't have debt, is independent, and produces clothing that makes men look handsome and elegant, referring to Prada who went officially went public this week.
After looking at both collection we have to agree that the Prada collection looks like it falls into a category of clothing that we probably wouldn't wear, however the Dolce & Gabbana collection is nowhere near as bad. In our opinion, a few of the pieces would fit into Giorgio Armani's SS2012 collection.
Take a look at the video and a few of the more outlandish looks from both collection and you can let us know what you thing after the break.
