Emporio Armani: Ready-to-wear AW16
“New pop” was Mr Armani’s title for his latest Emporio Armani collection. I’m sure he wasn’t thinking about Kylie Minogue, nor about coca-cola, nor about Pringles (once they pop, you can’t stop). But maybe he was thinking a bit about Andy Warhol and hyper-pop colour, about squares and circles and triangles, about minimal sharp lines and graphic stuff, because that’s what came out on the catwalk, for both him and her (Mr Armani has caught the bug for mixing boys and girls together in his shows). “Sparkle galore” was his term for an iridescent evening offering of chic short shapes with full skirts, and glittering c coloured heels. Those looked as delectable as bonbons. And everyone will want to grab a pair.
