Showing us he has a good old-fashioned sense of humour and knows how to poke a bit of fun at himself – or celebrate himself, or both – Giorgio Armani sent out a winner of a T-shirt among his Spring/Summer 2017 collection today: a black and white smiling portrait of himself, worn with a loose and light jacket as per the rest of the collection. It was fun and funny and deserved the on-cue clapping it so got. Because this was the piece!

Yes, the rest was another solid Armani collection and adhered to its suiting style codes, the house DNA of stone, blue, and cream shades; it was easy and breezy, smart and sophisticated, but this put a little spoke in the works, it was a little spark, a little gem – and can be worn by those who aren't Armani wearers full time, too. And that's the difference. It was a bit like a fashion band T-shirt in this respect. And as Italian fashion icons go, Mr Armani is surely one of them. Are you with Giorgio Armani?
