Emporio Armani SS14

Monet-inspired prints on fluid silhouettes create a sense of calm at Emporio Armani

TextSusie LauPhotographyPaolo Simi

Initial Reaction:

Monet-inspired water nymphs in the city. 


Pastel water lily prints projected on to the backdrop. 


Enchanted gardens, rippling water and abstracted florals.

Stand out looks:

Watercolour plisse silk separates in iridescent colours. 

Most likely to:

Fit right into a Georges Seurat painting on La Grande Jatte. 

Least likely to:

Get wrecked on a Saturday night: the Emporio Armani girl is too serene for that. 


Floral printed briefcases, ombre silvery tights and perspex floral neckpieces. 


Coiled up hair tightly wound around kirby grips, left in the hair as accessories. 

Quote of the show:

"Emporio Armani suggests an evocative future in which nature is reflected in the rigors of high technology."

Left us wanting:

A peaceful walk around a gallery of Monet watercolours.
