Emporio Armani Spring/Summer 2024 – Milan Fashion Week Men’s

June 20, 2023

As a sizzling summer season draws near, Giorgio Armani unveils a creative new collection under his Emporio Armani line, brimming with surprises and innovative expressions of style. Drawing from a well of cultural inspirations and contemporary design, the Emporio Armani Spring/Summer 2024 collection offers a vision of fashion that harks back to the brand’s debut in 1976, while fervently embracing the spirit of the upcoming 33rd edition of the Summer Olympics in Paris.

In an awe-inspiring spectacle held at the Teatro Armani runway, a dozen Italian Olympic athletes, including Paralympians, graced the stage. Adorned in capsule renditions of the national kit, the athleisure line is set to steal the limelight next summer. The audience greeted this debut with a thunderous applause, signaling Armani’s triumphant interpretation of athletic chic.

The vibrant hues of the Italian tricolor – red, white and green – provided striking accents against a sophisticated palette of tonal shades and an omnipresent deep, inky black. At the heart of this collection lies an intriguing motif: the ginkgo leaf, woven into the narrative through clever use of embroidery and the subtle touch of nature in the otherwise urban ensemble.

From one-and-a-half-breasted peak lapel suits paired with roomy trousers, to latticed tops featuring the leaf as a cut-out design, Armani paid tribute to the aesthetic essence of traditional Asian clothing. The ginkgo leaf flourished across innovative shirt-biker hybrids in matte jacquard, while softly shimmering on loose golden tunic shirts with a relaxed shoulder line.

An interesting array of tonal knit hoodies layered over drawstring pants in a muted beige hinted at the versatile, laid-back approach to summer fashion. It cleverly paved the way for a segment focusing on sheer, silky separates in a soothing greige, paired with robust lug-toed sneakers. The collection subtly referenced the practicality of outdoor gear with harness-held hats, seemingly suspended in mid-air.

As the show progressed, the ginkgo leaf motif returned on hoodies, marking a smooth transition back to the quintessential Emporio aesthetic. The grand finale showcased an array of dedicated evening looks, typically featuring the innovative horseshoe waistcoat.

Emporio Armani’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection artfully juggled between Asian and European aesthetics, creating a fluid confluence of culture and fashion. The silhouettes, ranging from stark black to pristine white, echoed the Olympic motto – “Faster, Higher, Stronger – Together“. In essence, this collection heralds a celebration of unity, strength, and style, taking us on a journey across borders and beyond conventions. This is, indeed, a testament to Armani’s uncanny ability to capture the zeitgeist while remaining deeply rooted in tradition.
