MILAN Emporio Armani wanted to bring a touch of freedom and openness to women's wardrobes for next spring, with the Italian designer brand presenting a light travel inspired collection at Milan Fashion Week.
Veteran designer Giorgio Armani opened the presentation for his second label with lightly coloured looks, made up of fluid jackets and loose trousers, which were accessorised with black berets and bags.
Models wore long shirts over pants, sarong-like skirts and loose tops - all with flat shoes at the show, held on Thursday afternoon.
Armani said in a statement that the collection expresses a idea of freedom and openness, and he wanted to give everydaywear the lightness of holiday looks.
Designs came in shades of blue, green, turquoise and mauve. For the evening, there were beaded tops, shimmering and embroidered sheer dresses in pastel hues.
On Sunday, Armani will present the latest collection for his main line, Giorgio Armani, on the penultimate day of Milan Fashion Week.
