Emporio Armani Release A Jet-Setting Travel Capsule

Do you remember the very first night of September? If you’re a young adult, or parent lucky enough to dump the little ones off with the grandparents, you’re guaranteed not to remember it this year. More and more of us are waiting for the kids to go back to school to jet off abroad for our end of summer piss-ups. Yes, the weather may be a bit nippier, but you can brave your skimpiest pair of short shorts and down as many piña coladas in peace and tranquility. You’ve got your favourite Hawaiian shirts and your suncream at the ready, but why lug all your holiday gems into a plain old suitcase you’ve had to borrow off one of your mates? Thankfully, Emporio Armani are here to get you in the holiday spirit before you even step onto the plane with a brand new travel capsule collection.

The wide range of goodies will ensure your travels flow with ease and simplicity. A spacious duffle stamped with the Armani eagle makes perfect carry on luggage, as does a hard-shell miniature suitcase which is lined with water-repellent and double-elasticated fabrics to ensure your finest clobber doesn’t crease inside. The collection is packed with minimal yet sleek holiday garms – including windbreakers, nylon blazers and joggers for the men, and sumptuous single-button jackets and cigarette trousers for women. Pair these understated gems with one of the canary yellow backpacks, or hot pink drawstring bags and you’re prepped and ready for any destination. Whether it be a wine-tasting excursion to the south of France or a lads weekend in Magaluf – dress in this Armani capsule and rest assured, you won’t be cringing at your holiday photos in ten years time. As for the “Maga2019” tattoo you got stamped on your chest, we can’t make any promises…

The Travel collection by Emporio Armani will be available in Emporio Armani stores and online from September.
