Giorgio Armani Holiday 2011 Madre Perla Collection Preview

An inspiring era… The elegance of the 30s is setting the tone for the season. Pure lines, sophisticated colours, luxurious details… Art Deco in all its glory with one of its iconic materials: Madre Perla.

Madre Perla inlaid in a precious case, heralding a must-have product. Madre Perla, too, in Linda Cantello’s colour inspiration, with subtle reflections and iridescent effects.

Like a 1930s’ boudoir… A touch of lacquer and patinated metals add a sophisticated feel to satiny, pearlescent tones. Delicate shades reminiscent of the silk lingerie of the time.” (Linda Cantello)


Irresistible… Inspired by Art Deco style, Giorgio Armani’s famous black case is decorated in real Madre Perla. Precision work done entirely by hand in the purest tradition of luxury craftsmanship. Utter refinement: a silver logo adorns this exclusive limited edition case, which just 3,000 women in the world will have the privilege of owning. Decidedly unique…

Inside are found three luminous, satiny powders in sand, champagne and aqua. Silky shadows that skilfully combine a featherlight texture with radiant colour. Blended over the eye area, the three shades sculpt and illuminate the eyes. Lightly dabbed onto the facial contours, the sand and champagne tones catch the light to increase the radiance of the complexion.

The Face & Eye Palette is also available in Giorgio Armani’s iconic black lacquer case.


A pastel harmony enhanced with a touch of iridescence.

The smoky eye takes on a satiny, luminous sheen with the softness of this slightly metallic ivory, lavender and taupe trio. Micronised pigments incorporated into a translucent base cloak the eyelids in an intense veil of colour.


Giorgio Armani’s most spectacular shadow is revealed in a limited edition of three metallic shades subtly patinated: a gold, as an echo to antique gilt, a toned down silver plutonium, and an intermediate shade blending gold and silver.

Thanks to Colorfil color matrix, these creamy, powder-free shadows adhere to the eyelid like a second skin, without ever fading or flaking. At the heart of their formula is a very high concentration of pigments captured in a supple polymer complex resistant to humidity and heat. The result: a vibrant film of colour, as if cast in metal, which stays true for 24 hours.



A play of light and shade for the eyes… while the lips are adorned in vibrant lacquered shades. A real weave of colour, Gloss d’Armani offers comfortable, long-lasting hold, expressed in four limited edition shades: barely iridescent rosewood enhances the natural colour of the lips, while a velvety “amaranth” red and sienna intensely emphasise their shape. And an unexpected choice: a bold amethyst, which is vivid yet so translucent on application that it matches any skin tone.

    I buy Armani’s face palette every holiday so I’m really excited to see this one. The eyes to kill shadows are lovely too.

    Megan Fox looks so pretty but she’s more mature looking now.

    This is a gorgeous collection from GA, but 3000 pieces of the palette? That’s insane. Do you know when the collection will come out and how much they sell?

      I don’t have the pricing but I know it’s next month.

      That pearl packaging is a limited of only 3000. I was pretty shocked after seeing that. I wonder how they would price it.
