Emporio Armani: Restless in the Metropolis


Autumn/Winter ’17 Collection at a Glance

Maestro Giorgio Armani sums up his Emporio Armani collection in the words “restless, metropolitan spirit”. Which describes his own personality to a T. Because the now octogenarian designer is as feisty, creative and active as ever. Based in the fashion metropolis of Milan, he and his team have produced utterly urban styles for this autumn/winter. While of course always remaining true to his label’s aesthetics. On the catwalk, monochrome black-and-white looks with clear lines and linear patterns were followed by pink, red, purple. He has brought out women’s feminine side while simultaneously giving them back the comfort that is often reserved exclusively for menswear.

And there’s no lack of glamour, either: glittery fringes adorn evening gowns, oversized sequins decorate jumpers and metallic sneakers sparkle below velvet trousers on the black mirrored catwalk. Bringing together leisure, business and red-carpet styles in a single collection with such skill is something that only one man can do: the restless Signore Armani.
