The Emporio Armani spring summer 2014 woman has racked up her frequent flyer miles this season and is ready to travel the world in business first.
Comfort and attention to fabrics was evident in the cropped palazzo pant suits and cool monochrome check, and rolled-up-at-the sleeve pastel colored blazers strutting casually down the catwalk.
Cross body and luxuriant totes in black and shades of green emphasized the escapism theme in this collection. Casual outfits were paired with floral print sandals and heeled black toe booties.
As with many Armani collections, a touch of Asian class was apparent in the harmonious simplicity in contours and abundance of silk materials, and the water lily motif.
While forgiving pajama-like pantsuits and generous robes hit a frumpy note, a sense of fragility was achieved through the use of delicate floral mesh patterns, shimmering silk sleeveless blouses, ankle length pants, and kimono like skirt suit ensembles fastened with floral belts.
A dream-like stream of evening dresses with flapper-ish layers and off-the-shoulder ruffles were illuminated with luxuriant fabrics, and a dusting of crystals on tulle.
"I loved the iridescent materials and the dimension of colors," said singer Chrysta Bell in Milan for her first Italian concert, which took place on Sept. 18.
Emporio Armani was her first fashion show ever. "It's a universally kissed moment," she said.
