How to Sew Pants Inspired by Armani

Threads magazine - 57 – Feb./Mar. 1995 Issue
Article Image
When you’re looking for a good example to follow, it makes sense to start at the top. And when the subject is masterful updates of tailored classics, is there anyone there besides Giorgio Armani? Lucy Brusini and Kicki Whelóu loved the look of his sleek trousers, so when a pair of the real things came their way, they analyzed them from top to bottom, and haven’t made their own pants the same way since.  Armani pants, like his wonderful jackets, are basically women’s versions of menswear; they’re made like men’s tailored clothing, but they’re softened with the fabrics and reduced inner structure of womenswear. Brusini and Whelóu wanted the same cut, similar fabrics, and identical details for the pants they made. The technical details will be helpful to anyone making women’s pants, whether based on Armani’s style or not. They provide useful solutions to such everyday pants-making problems as baggy knees and sagging pockets, and will add polish and perfection to fly-front zippers and waistbands.  From Threads #57
