Mr Armani was in a playful, witty mood for his A/W ‘09 Emporio Armani collection. The main focus was on the short skirts and shorts, which were highlighted by sheer tights and herringbone knee socks. Watch out for some hot accessories too. Brilliant cut-out heeled brogues, velvet heeled ankle boots, sequin courts with mirror-ball front piece were standout shoes. We also loved the peaked caps and gloves with cameo brooches on them. And the jewellery proved really important too - draped over the hip like a chain or embellishing the jackets. Sharp shoulders - the major trend to emerge from New York and London Fashion Week's so far - are still evident in Milan judging by this collection, along with very fitted jackets with nipped in waists.
