It’s All An Illusion-The starting point of Emporio Armani’s fall/winter 2014 collection is a new rendition of the classic man’s silhouette, which is revisited for the season in a shorter and more fitted way. Jackets get shorter and trousers get a ribbed cuff as further evidence of traditional Italian tailoring. Venturing in a new direction intended to explore new textures, Emporio Armani’s fall offering finds in gray its favorite color, joined by rich blue and burgundy hues. These are the essential colors that build next season’s aesthetic, but it is in the fabrics and their textures that the collection delivers its best facet.
Following the motto that “Nothing is what it seems”, the Italian label experiments new ways to treat fabrics, adding to them a multidimensional touch, like for example the classic wool, which is treated to look like luxurious astrakhan. Transforming the collection into a tactile experience, Emporio Armani proves once more the experimental attitude that leads the label’s modern philosophy.
