We’re all going back in time in 2016! Let’s remember our youthful days of endless fun and colors. The new Emporio Armani pre-fall 2016 collection will lead your new youthful style this year. The collection has all the bold, playful, and daring vibes you will need. Some of you probably picture Armani as the manifestation of elegance and glamour itself, but it’s not the only side of the world-known designer.
Here is the proof. A very girly and free collection made of garments you can wear to the lunch with besties or a crazy night out with no clear ending.
Let’s start with the color palette. It’s a pre-fall collection after all, so, naturally, colors are mostly reserved to darker shades. We see a lot of black, especially in jackets, coats and accessories. If you’re a black loyalist, you’ll love the black jacket with sleeve puffs and buttons on the front. It’s an architectural design, engineered to look fantastic on any body type. It’s ok if you don’t feel particularly fit today; the jacket brings its own fit.
Then come the brighter colors that you don’t usually see in fall collections. There are a few surprises if you’re the playful customer. What about surprise linings in the coat? The combination of green with blue and yellow? What? You think it’s too much? I think it’s the exact amount you need to make a lasting impression.
The red hues are also worth a mention. Mostly found in overly black looks, the juicy red provides ideal contrast for the eye. There is pink for the pinkies, turquois for blue-fans, grey for monochrome dressers, chartreuse yellow, fuchsia, and PRINTS, prints all around for the rest of us!
We love the classic Armani prints that you can spot in almost every collection. They look great in every color and are the signature look to answer the question about what you’re wearing.
The centerpiece of the Emporio Armani pre-fall 2016 collection is the T-Shirt with the text “Emporio Girl Power,” quite the attention-grabber. A secret code for all Armani girls out there?
Ok, enough about the colors, let’s talk about the coats and jackets! Just like every pre-fall collection, this one also will add a few items to your to-buy list. Fur and fabric, loose and tight, the collection does offer options, but jackets have tighter fits, while coats are left loose and comfortable. You could even wear a tutu under some of them and won’t even show, so your secret is all safe with Armani.
We should also say our thanks to Giorgio Armani for not letting the shoulder pads disappear into the archives of fashion. They’re still hot and current. All these awesome outfits are styled with ankle socks and platform heels, either in black or in the bold colors of the palette.
Watching the Emporio Armani pre-fall 2016 collection, we couldn’t help but notice the comeback that boyish style is having. A-line dresses hiding the curvy features of your body (same goes for the coats) constitute a sort of tomboy-glamour mixed look that was once so popular in the ‘20s.
