Review

The RA has taken over the old museum of mankind? behind the actual RA,but given that the show was at the Guggenheim NY, G. Armani does seem to be slumming it when you have to go in the back entrance to see his clothes.

The show is shit. A whole bunch of old dresses and suits on headless mannequins with some silly threads streaming from the ceiling. I saw only two old guys looking at, the rest of the viewers were all women.Who really gives a shit about a bunch of out of fashion fashions. The display is fantastically tacky, when you walk into the room of orientalish clothes, chinesey music plays. There's nasty gray carpet throughout and titles like MINIMALISM. It's so lame.

Just because he's made a lot of money selling expensive shit, doesn;t mean great art galleries need to exhibit his creations.
