What it was like: Before models took to the runway, Armani opened his sand-inspired runway show with a short movie by Oscar-winning director Paolo Sorrentino about nature on the islands of Lipari and Stromboli, a natural transition into the theme itself. From organza skirts silk-screened with images of sand dunes to diaphanous pants paired with shimmery dresses, washed out tones definitely made their mark.

Why we love this collection: Wispy layers and barely there hues led to an airy collection that was expertly detailed and appropriately tempered for spring weather --especially if you happen to be lounging in the desert, we might add.
