Almost a year and eight months have passed since the first cases of COVID-19 broke out in Italy, the Armani group was back for the first time to physical parades with this Emporio Armani show which, moreover, celebrated on this occasion its 40th anniversary. Giorgio Armani was the first designer to sense the threat of the pandemic and had decided to close his stores very early, just like the first to bet on the digital format to present his collections.

It’s not hard to imagine that this Emporio Armani show was particularly important in more ways than one because it also looks to the future. Indeed, instead of focusing on the bestsellers of this line seen as a more youthful brand than the veteran designer’s main Giorgio Armani line, Giorgio Armani preferred to highlight new materials and styles through silhouettes that were always relaxed and casual with touches of urban elegance.
Everything was fluid in this collection where there were wide leg cargo pants, long coats and oversized shirts with a hint of 90s influence, soft linen or pajama-type suits in soft fabrics, blazers lightweight, but also double shorts worn one over the other and associated with leggings or track pants.
As for the color palette, the show began with dark shades, navy blue and black, that turned then into more neutral and soft ones before ending with bold and bright colors (green, red, pink, blue).
“This season, the journey begins in an imaginary desert, crossing its oasis and ending in vibrant colourways”, we could read in the show notes. “Everything blends together, quite freely”.
