Em­po­rio Ar­mani shows us what hap­pens when Ital­ian flair merges with style from the land of the ris­ing sun

Em­po­rio Ar­mani keeps it sleek ala Ital­ian mafioso style, but with a touch of East meets West. The fash­ion house sent their mod­els strut­ting down the run­way in blaz­ers and ki­mono jack­ets ca­su­ally left un­but­toned or adorned with lapel ac­ces­sories. Sil­hou­ettes took on a roomier route in­stead of the slim fit cuts that the mod­ern man is sub­jected to these days. Nonethe­less ev­ery­thing ex­uded a re­laxed air, loose in a very el­e­gantly man­ner. With the ground­ing colour of Ar­mani’s sig­na­ture dark blue, came splashes of vivid red lac­quer hues that pulled to­gether the other Ja­panese el­e­ments present, such as Ja­panese iconog­ra­phy, and the us­age of silk and cuts that im­i­tated the bil­lowy forms of Ja­panese mar­tial arts garb.
