The Emporio Armani fall collection failed to excite today. Armani played it safe this season, showing a collection full of black against a backdrop this season of designers being experimental with colour and finally breaking away from the expected.
Although there were some strong pieces that worked like some floaty black maxi dresses styled with thick scarves, the collection lacked the wow factor. Shapes were largely relaxed with trousers coming in wide leg loose-fit styles under simple dresses. Later on in the collection he did introduced some structure particularly on a black asymmetric all-in-one with a tulip pleating detail on one hip and halter neck dresses. Unfortunately, the collection didn't get more experimental than that.
