Giorgio Armani is first in line, kicking off the resort season by presenting his Armani Collezioni line in New York. The designer caters to all aspects of his customers’ lives, providing looks for every hour of the day. But he infuses most of them with a laid-back attitude, focusing on sporty pieces such as a fitted denim blazer, slouchy pleated shorts and athletic-inspired, zip-front outerwear. He has also evolved his knitwear, offering plenty of luxe cashmere cardigans and cable sweaters. Working primarily in neutral tones, Armani adds shots of color, chief among them yellow, lavender and peach. But an Armani collection wouldn’t be complete without his signature jackets, and he provides plenty of new shapes to choose from, ranging from a casual waxed linen unconstructed version to a variety of tailored evening blazers complete with rosettes or bows.
