The Emporio Armani Fall 2018 collection featured twinkling, lush fabrications usually reserved for eveningwear were transplanted into daywear.
“I would not overdo it with easy emotions at all costs [when] creating a spectacle. One can do whatever if he wants. But if I put a head under the arm—severed—on the runway, we have reached the limit,” said Giorgio Armani.
Suits and short suits in pinstripe or check came with the enhancement of micro-rhinestones embedded within the fabric. A great mid-height cowboy boot that ran through the collection was sometimes a rhinestone cowboy boot, sometimes a silver cowboy boot. It was effectively teamed with a green jumpsuit in patched jersey and velvet, and a beautifully cut black double-breasted coat-dress with twisted gather in its arms.
Like many collections this season, the house logo was expressed every which way: EA, or its eagle, or the full name of the label popped up as belt buckles, on the waistband of black satin sports shorts, and in bold size on the front of mohair knitwear.
The real party in Milan was in the backstage of the Emporio Armani Fall 2018 fashion show.
