For Giorgio Armani's ss12 menswear collection under the Emporio Armani label was more April Showers than May Flowers a sea of grey. The theme was lightness; the fabric were light, the color palette was light, the easiness of the fits was light (it's all just sort of tossed on in an effortlessly chic way). As a whole, watching the models come out one after another, there was a sense that you were walking through a thick fog — the only color to be found were in subtle dip dyes, and the few pieces asserting a bold blue near the end. Once again, another solid, marketable menswear collection; every piece is accessible, and practical. Much as with Dolce&Gabbana's menswear collection, there is a lean towards dropped waistlines for belts — it seems to be a subtle nod at the slouchy belt trend seen in womenswear, only more refined. I certainly saw more than a few pieces I could see myself wearing (if I had the money). Check out more detailed shots after the jump.
