Milan Men's Fashion Week SS16: Emporio Armani

Neapolitan athleisure

Text: Pakkee Tan

Far from the razzmatazz of colours proposed for spring, Emporio Armani streamlines silhouettes and colour palettes for the new season

A looser shape for spring was put forward... on the runway as models strutted out with softly structured jackets paired with wide-cut pants for a flowing effect. Jacket shoulders were left natural for a pleasing sloping effect as opposed to the power tailoring of seasons past.

Did anyone notice that pants hems... had ribbed cuffs such that they resembled joggers? Not to mention the luxe trainers that came in everything from patent leather to suede.

Sporty  round-necked leather jackets with no lapels... were a key highlight of this year's collection. When layered over soft silk shirts with their collars upturned, it gave off just the right amount of Neapolitan insouciance.

Dusky turquoise... was injected into an otherwise neutral colour palette of navy blues, blacks and greys. It was a subtle nod to the changing of the seasons without straying too far into pop bright territory.

Let's discuss those berets... We're not sure about you, but we're convinced it's high time these hats made a comeback. Especially with those über cool mirrored sunglasses.
