Giorgio and the Empire he built is on a roll! We can’t believe just how many looks (close to 100) Emporio threw at us at Milan 2011 – basically they’ve kitted the contemporary man in everything he needs to look his best from day (casual looks, formal suiting and sportswear) to evening (great long coats, structured dinner jackets and velvet – always a winner for those long winter nights).
The collection is dark, moody, almost belligerent; charcoal blacks layered with strong reds and subtle greys; an aggressive, no holds barred approach. The dark assault continues with Armani’s injection of military nuances into the collection, the theme captured most radically in a pair of seriously asymmetrical knee-high, kick a** leather boots.
In his quest to outfit today’s gentleman with everything for every season, Emporior Armani Fall 2011 is a watershed collection that’ll leave the wearer and his admirers with a taste of sophistication and pure luxury; style that is very much grounded in the label’s tradition.
