Giorgio Armani’s latest Milan Fashion Week show followed Emporio Armani’s collection, making use of Armani/Silos’ exhibition area to reinforce the designer’s creative philosophy. The reflective runway was highlighted with streaks of blue neon lights, representing the accents that appear throughout the collection.

The men were fitted in tailored suits as per Armani’s signature aesthetic. Hints of utility wear appeared in the form of goggles while the womenswear continued off from last season’s offering of more ornamentation as seen in accessories and details.

The dominating evening wear looks were contoured in peplum, bows, and ruffles on collars and handbags. Velvet and leather pieces offered a contrast of textures that differentiated the otherwise united color scheme.

The collection’s palette was set against soft twilight colors of indigo and violet and transitioned into the calm spectrum of a night sky, featuring pieces of Prussian blue to lighter shades of cerulean blue.

The walk’s steady and leisurely pace neared its end as Armani walked hand in hand with a model in a dark evening gown. The duo’s outfits were a cohesive conclusion to closing off the evening.
