Italian designer Giorgio Armani chose a light breezy silhouette for his Emporio Armani line at Milan Fashion Week on Thursday, picking soft colours and loose cuts for the brand’s spring line.
Armani, a veteran designer affectionately called "King Giorgio" in Italy, called the Spring/Summer 2020 collection "Air" underlining the clothes' floaty feel.
Soft pink, blue, grey and beige dominated the catwalk where models strutted under a blue sky lighting in wrinkled jackets and trousers, the latter straight or gathered at the ankle.
Trousers were striped, silk and pinstripe, and at times also see through, while jackets were round at the collar, wrap around or tied at the neck. Duster coats and blazers were shiny or in embroidered tulle. Tops were cropped or long and loose.
The 85-year-old designer, known for his simple elegant outfits, presented an array of tulle dresses that were also light and airy. Models also wore jumpsuits and large silver belts.
"The city is the horizon, the attitude is effortlessly feminine," show notes read.
"A collection in which the clean lines come from a play on subtractions ... The balance of soft colours and surfaces that are worn, wrinkled, lightened and worked on create a syntax of a floaty, immaterial style."
