“A Basketful of Summer“. “Summer“, a time synonymous with lightness, letting go and indulging in summer sweets and idylls after a year of hard work and pressure. And it is this feeling of lightness that Giorgio Armani celebrates with his new Emporio Armani Spring/Summer 2023 collection, which invites “the sheer joy of living and dressing for the season: choosing clothes and accessories to throw on without thinking too much“.
The result is a timeless wardrobe that you want to put on immediately for any occasion, whether for a dinner with friends, a trip to the museum, a walk by the sea, a picnic around a bag or even a date night or business meeting.
There’s so much in this collection that it’s impossible to comment on them all, but what’s clear from all of them is that the daring cuts and innovative details discreetly let bare skin breathe in the sweltering summer heat. Here, an innovative neckline that reveals a slightly muscular torso; there, ultra-short shorts, featherweight seersucker jackets that float on bare skin or wide-leg pants that open at the bottom, airing the ankles. The color palette is vibrant, lively, yet natural, using a plethora of summery hues, including cool blues, slate grays, pure whites, jet blacks, pineapple yellows and organic or lime greens. And for accessories, Emporio Armani introduces colorful caps, swim cap-like headwear, half-moon sunglasses alongside new wavy rubber mules.
