Emporio Armani’s show paid homage to spontaneous, fresh youth, to a generation that shuns tradition and mixes day and evening wear without distinction. A blend of elegance and comfort. Armani’s women walked in mini-skirts and shorts, covered in masculine coats and jackets, outerwear with asymmetric fasteners, bows at the waist, lurex and chiffon, velvet and innovative pinstripe. The colours were the changing tones of the sky, teamed with an intense black. Contrasting letters and numbers provided a sporty touch. The giant brand logo appeared on skirts and was repeated over glam faux fur. Evening wear featured feathers and vinyl, with dresses dotted with bright, geometric touches. There was grace and balance, in true Armani style, even in the shaded sparkles and mirror fabrics. A new kind of urban romanticism.
