Emporio Armani Pre-Fall 2017 Collection Explores Armani’s Archival Sketches

Archives are always a hotbed for inspiration, especially when it comes to Giorgio Armani. For his newest Emporio Armani pre-fall 2017 collection, the Italian artist immersed himself into all of those old sketches that he has been collecting for more than 40 years of his career in the fashion industry, treating us to a sort of old newness that one cannot help but adore.

As a result, this 23-piece collection will particularly appeal to those who look forward to designers’ second lines to buy (slightly) more affordable, yet always high-end clothes. And since this is Armani’s collection, nothing could be described as predictable, although most of the silhouettes and lines look extremely familiar.

While for his main line, the 82-year-old designer always favors a dark-toned palette, such as black, gray and at times even beige colors, over more vivid hues, for this specific Emporio Armani pre-fall 2017 line-up he made an exception by venturing into the boldest side of fashion, injecting bright reds, pinks and light blues into most outfits.

Black remains the sole protagonist here, but is surprisingly not alone. Cheerfully colored bows, stripes and polka dots also revive some of the darkest looks, adding a distinctive and playful younger touch to the entire collection.

What could be described as standard Armani is, instead, the abounding amount of separates that the Piacenza-born designer delighted us with. From flirty skirts to mannish trousers, from Eighties-inspired quilted jackets with puffed-up shoulders to casual t-shirts, the latest Emporio Armani pre-fall collection comprises a well-balanced array of separates that easily transition from day to night, depending on how we decide to combine them. Signature Armani suits are, of course, still the focal point of this collection, although this time around such suits effortlessly feature fresher cropped cuts and more relaxed lines.

Suits aside, the Emporio Armani pre-fall 2017 collection also quickly introduces us to another important key element, which indeed helps us set Giorgio Armani’s two major lines apart: girly dress.

Playful and definitely designed while keeping a sort of “funky girl” prototype in mind, Armani’s take on the pre-fall frock is a highly versatile one, with the figures, lines and details of the dresses being just perfect for any occasion (with the sole exception of the sequined mini dress that is all about nights out with friends).

Last but not least, the collection delivers a sort of “line within the line” that clearly flirts with all of those women who are looking for garments to wear at the office, whether it is a long coat, a pair of pointy-toe oxford shoes or a beige blazer. Emporio Armani’s pre-fall 2017 collection takes the task to treat them to wearable, office-ready staples, without disappointing us with its results.
