Emporio Armani’s R-EA collection puts sustainability at the forefront of design.


The R-EA collection for Spring/Summer 2021 by Emporio Armani brings together practical and functional design with the most advanced textile research in terms of sustainability. Every material used in the nautical themed collection is certified according to the most relevant international standards in the field of eco-sustainability.



Technical fabrics such as GREENLON and NEWLIFE are made in Italy with nylon and post-consumer polyester derived from plastic bottles. While the crinkle, highly wear-resistant nylon, comes from the recycling of plastic waste such as fishing nets and lint from synthetic carpets.



The organic cotton used in the designs has a low environmental impact, employs no GMO (genetically modified organisms), and is grown without the use of pesticides or toxic chemical fertilisers.



The menswear follows a strictly blue and white colour palette with sporty shapes featuring hoods, toggles and contrasting stitching. Is spired by the marine world the collection features parkas, anoraks, blouson, Bermuda shorts and dungarees. For women, a similar colour palette offers a chic nautical theme.



Key pieces of the collection include light dusters, mini tops, oversized sweatshirts, cargo pants and Bermuda shorts. A model of sunglasses and a watch made of low-impact materials complete the offer. The certified compostable packaging also underlines the intent of the project.
