Watch the show:
In their words…
Emporio Armani | Autumn/Winter 2011-2012
In the style of a film noir, beauty is concealed behind a pair of dark
glasses and under a hat tilted over the forehead to suggest a hidden
mystery. This enigma is heightened by the perception of a life without
frontiers, according to a plot that follows an aesthetic journey between
different worlds. A precisely defined vision, treated ironically to give an
effortless and contemporary image. A stylish take on international
espionage, travelling through time and distance, referencing the beat of
great nightclubs and the silence of famous hotels.
Total black, with a flash of arctic white: a colour combination that
explores the interplay of light, shape and proportion. In this way each
outfit becomes an end in itself, telling a personal story through the matt
density of the cloth, the sheen of the velvet, the light touch of Mongolian
fur and the restraint of eco fur.
Seductive and practical jumpsuits, with full trousers cut as sharp as a
blade to emphasise the long, fluid silhouette. With raw-edge finishes and
sculpted jackets featuring concealed or covered buttons. Just a single
element of colour – the palest pink of bare legs worn without tights, of a
scooped neckline, and of gloveless hands clutching perfectly designed bags.
