The Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani accessories lines were showcased for the first time at Milan Fashion Week.

A sharp men’s inspiration ran through the Armani collection, which was displayed in a suite at the designer’s new Armani hotel. The focus was on flat shoes, such as an elongated and narrow brushed calfskin lace-up, with ponyskin or crystal-encrusted vamps in bold tones of orange and fuchsia, and gold details on the toes. Geometric shapes and audacious combinations of materials dominated the bag collection. Case in point: a zebra-print ponyskin clutch with neon pink and gold patent leather inserts. There was also a big focus on exotic skins, including a structured shoulder bag in black python splashed with a zigzag pattern in neon pink and purple.

The Emporio Armani lineup, shown in the brand’s flagship, centered on a velvet floral pattern in cool tones of blues and greens for loafers, booties and handbags, such as a zipped, rounded clutch. Velvet was paired with fishnet on a black bowling bag with gold metallic details and on a pump with a high instep. Pleated leather was also used for a range of bags, including a black square-shaped style with a detachable shoulder strap.
