Taking Milan Fashion Week by storm, the invites to Emporio Armani's SS19 runway arrived asking for TSA approved information and a reminder to not forget your passport. Set inside the hangar of the Milan Linate Airport, Armani presented his Emporio Armani "Boarding" collection with over 150 looks to satisfy any fashion consumer this coming spring season.

Designer Giorgio Armani says, “Airports are places full of symbolism. They suggest unbounded openness to the world outside. You take off to discover and learn, or come back after experiencing countless adventures. I liked the idea of staging this event in the same hangar which has been labelled with the “Emporio Armani” insignia and its iconic eagle logo since 1996 — an image that welcomes the thousands of travellers who land at Linate Airport or functions as a farewell as they depart from Milan. The airport is the perfect space for Emporio Armani, the brand that embodies a free, adventurous spirit and continually reasserts its essence through a contemporary style."

Delivering a collection that holds jet-set sentiment with fashion forward flexibility, Armani's casted militia of models evolved from surfers to chic metropolitan sidewalk babes, each en route and on a mission to whatever their final destination may be. Remaining tailored as ever, the collection holds the youthful spirit the mega brand embodies, giving young professionals, bright young things, and wayfarers on their way, a balanced wardrobe feeling ever-modern and ready for the all to real on-the-go hustle.
