Emporio Armani 2006 Spring RTW

Emporio Armani seems like an unfocused show, and it also seems to be trying to show us ALL the different ways each idea can be translated into a style. That's fine, but a little more discrimination would have helped, I think. There are 95+ looks in this show. That's about 3 times what a really tight, well-edited show generally has. Menswear is also shown in this collection.

A very interesting waist treatment, but the bag adds nothing.

A high-relief braided passementerie as edging.

There are a series of jackets and tops with a seam right under the bust, as well as princess seaming. The skirt would be adventurous, but I could see it about 6" longer, with a semi-sheer layer underneath. I like the shape of it, though.

There are a lot of variations on these curved pleated ruffles, including tiers on skirts as well as tops. Cute jacket closure.

A real slip-style dress with this jacket in front. Behind is the same smocked yoke on a skirt this time, showing the versatility of the idea, although I'm not sure it's a success on the skirt.

A cute T-shirt style top.

Yet another variation on the Twist Top.

A darling jacket, and almost the first thing in this show that's not somewhat "sloppy" in feel.
