Emporio Armani Fall/Winter 2015-2016 collection was shown in Milan Fashion Week, on February 27, 2015.
A few words about collection:
Emporio Armani is classic Italian fashion in its purest form and this season was as smart, timeless and deadly serious as you’d expect. Overwhelmingly made up of office-appropriate separates, Armani played with subtle changes in silhouette as wide black leather frills wrapped around waists and over shoulders. Those same unfussy frills appeared at the end of sleeves, over hips and on the pockets of a fabulous two-tone fur coat.
Fur was used innovatively on a skirt and jacket as a trim on what looked like purple silk petals, while shapes largely remained conservative. At the same time, there was a folkloric tinge to the floral appliqués on gray wool skirts, or a long quilted red coat, or a puff-sleeved dress that felt like a little girl’s look writ adult. The low-slung, wide-cut trousers had a Petrouchka feel. An artisanal knit subtext peaked with a couple of jumbo mohair sweaterdresses
That’s not to say this collection had no bite, details in red ran through the otherwise dark and muted palette lifting it into something a little more dangerous. . Shoes were secured at the ankle with thin straps or bound on with what looked like thick black ribbon and were wicked in the best possible way.
