Autumn begins with a pop of color for Emporio Armani. The Italian fashion house is “In the Mood for Pop” with a fall-winter 2021 men’s collection that utilizes bold splashes of color against a dark lineup. The Emporio Armani man seeks out a softness, which manifests itself in relaxed shapes and the deconstruction of men’s tailoring. One of the prevailing themes of the season, an idea of home life, is conflated with a public face. For example, the sharp and formal structure of coats finds a gentler execution in knit fabrics that mirror a dressing gown’s intimacy and comfort. Inspired by sleepwear, collarless blazers reinforce Emporio Armani’s soft approach to fall. Meanwhile, luxurious materials like herringbone wool and sheepskin elevate casual essentials such as the anorak or simple pullover.
