Fall / winter color trends 2022-2023: Giorgio Armani's ode to gray

To have spent more than one adjective towards the potential of gray is Giorgio Armani , who on Instagram has dedicated several posts presenting the must-haves of autumn – blazers and prime t-shirts – in gray, a color that it has always been very dear to the maison which has identified the traits of a sober and refined elegance. Suffice it to admire the essential look where gray meets white and ecru with extreme delicacy.

In an interview with Vogue Armani he explained why the fashion house has always been fascinated by gray, as a nuance that is the perfect synthesis of contemporaneity: “I was looking for a shade that was warm but at the same time metropolitan, sober but not predictable. And greige is all of this to me: discreet, sophisticated and natural. I love natural colors, they give a deep sense of tranquility and serenity, and they are a foundation on which anything can be built. They allow you to connect other colors with each other, they make a link between distant shades possible. Greige is like a background color. Something that remains, above which you can imagine different combinations from time to time “.

Armani was therefore able to experiment even more with a color he had already been fond of for a long time, focusing mostly on basic urban looks but with an elegant design, but other fashion houses have also identified gray as one of the trendy colors for next season. And mixing this nuance with others is also the direction of Max Mara , who proposes it on a classic like the sweater to be worn over a pencil skirt in military green.

Dior also plays with gray, preferring the darker shade that signs a classic, the bar jacket to be combined with a pleated skirt of the same color for a total look that evokes iconicity, a choice also shared in the luminous applications on bustiers where gray meets gold in a game of shades.
