Emporio Armani Ready To Wear Fall Winter 2014 Milan

At the Emporio Armani fall/winter 2014 show on Friday, Giorgio Armani was in a bit of a playful mood. How else to explain the enormous bowler hats - think Pharrell Williams- the designer places atop his models heads that almost totally obscured their eyes?

Ok, so maybe those hats weren’t just for an ironic effect. Perhaps their purpose was to balance the equally voluminous wide-cut cropped paints that the designer favored this season. They certainly helped to accentuate Armani’s finely tailored suit jackets and put an emphasis on their fitted, nipped in at the waist shape.

But if we put aside the eye catching broad brimmed hats and wide trousers, there were a number of other beautifully executed ideas in this collection. In particular, the cool and refreshing introduction of turquoise into the black and white dominated show.

This ultra feminine color helped to soften the masculine nature of the collection. While simultaneously giving the dark color palette a zesty highlight as say the lining of a black halter dress or a cool counterpoint color to gray on a lovely chevron coat.

Also, by adding prim and proper pearls to everything from flat loafers and neckties to jackets and trousers - for a decorative pinstripe effect -Armani found another way to feminize his masculine base shapes. In fact, it really was through the way he embellished his garments with beadwork that the designer was able to most successfully meld his two sartorial worlds.
