Initial reaction:

Slinky eighties geometry with hints of pyjama dressing.

Clean break:

If the collection’s clean lines – like the thin stripes of optical white intersecting single trouser legs – were inspired by architectural forms, Armani took its prints in a fragmented, Futurist direction, with disjointed grid patterns and broken lines. The mood was dark and monochromatic throughout, with shocks of green and blue on lightweight jumpers offering some colour. 

How it was worn:

With slicked-back hair revealing bold brows, slip-on skate shoes and clean leather backpacks. Whether thick plastic frames or classic clubmasters, this is one for the boys that wear their sunglasses at night.

The soundtrack to Emporio Armani SS15:

Last season Emporio Armani sent a troop of faux-fur clad streetwear dandies onto the runway. See it below:
