Italian fashion heavyweight Giorgio Armani brought a delicate touch to his Spring/Summer 2016 Haute Couture collection, which he presented in Paris.

The 81-year-old designer, who once worked as a window dresser and now has a global fashion empire, used mauve throughout the collection, coloring light jackets, shorts, pants, dresses and evening gowns.

To the slow beat of the music, models showcased the soft and silky outfits that were delicately decorated with ruffles, jewels and remained loose around the body giving the illusion of constant movement.

Entitled "mauve en mouvement", Armani's collection is a play on textures, length and volume all the while remaining natural with various shades of mauve and pink.

Armani, nicknamed "King Giorgio" in Italy, is known for being hands-on in creating one of the world's most recognized fashion brands, seen both on the street and red carpets.
