As always Armani’s 2016 Spring Summer Menswear line is cool, sophisticated and timeless. It is vintage Armani at it’s best and uses a lot of neutral colors to allow the collection to move from a casual to more refined feel without hesitation. This Fashion House known for it’s omnipresence in Men’s Fashion, gave us a curve ball that is both pleasing and thought provoking at the same time.
Instead of shirts, the models donned vests under their coats. The waistcoats were almost always buttoned diagonally. The use of pleats in the trousers gives us the relaxed feel of a casual night on the town. In addition, the use of sandals among the models on the runway further re-enforced the laid back aspect of the collection. The Fashion House has decided the look of 2016 should be one of the unconventional hipster who hasn’t given up on being sophisticated. What is clear with the new direction Armani has taken is that rules are meant to be broken.
