Milan Fashion Week AW17: Emporio Armani

Armani is nothing but a pure perfectionist. Giorgio built a reflective runway, something we have seen before in his previous shows, which gave a nice effect as the collection came down the catwalk.

He set the tone for the first section with mono-chromatic hues, and played with shapes from polka dots to checkered or gingham. There were solid coloured trouser suits, then came the floor sweeping black skirts, some luxurious pieces where detailed with snaking white embroidery, as for the casual items they were simply layered underneath over-sized sweaters.

One must say that there was a lot going on in this wide-ranging collection- 105 looks to be exact. However, the brand is known for its minimalistic touch, which helps us to focus on the pieces themselves, especially when it comes to items that are practical for everyday dressing, like tailored coats, boy pants and silk tops.

During the second part of the show, it was by no surprise that we started to see male models walking the runway at a women’s ready-to-wear show. Once again, Armani played with the masculine-feminine trend, which evened out this massive urban-dressing collection.

Today, no one can truly define fashion, but Giorgio Armani’s new range of designs are made to suit every modern woman out there that wants to have a distinctive style.
