Emporio Armani - Milan Spring 2009
(MILAN) At Mr. Armani's megaplex on via Bergognone, the Giorgio himself offered up a selection of nautical-via-boardroom looks that were signature Emporio Armani. Navy separates provided the collection's building blocks, while the paper-bag waist governed trousers, minis, and everything in between. White, slouchy ankle-length pants topped with a rumpled pale blue jacket proved just how wearable this collection is. Several military touches, most memorably in double-breasted navy jackets, offered a more serious touch--which nicely offset the transparent silk jumpsuits, rendered decent by a mere pair of minishorts. A flank of six pastel halter gowns decorated with bias-cut sequins underscored Emporio Armani's admirable versatility.
