Emporio Armani’s Fall 2015 collection, appropriately titled Crossing Colors, was as much a combination of patterns, genres, and even decades, as it was hues. As each model took to the runway—androgynously and homogeneously donning identical black wigs—it was evident that Mr. Armani would also be crossing boundaries.
The blended colors in question were predominately grey with pops of rich red seen mostly on cowl-neck collars, cuffs, and fitted jackets. Pairing black with deep shades of purple added vim and vigor to serious business attire, as did the juxtaposition of dainty plaid designs on over-sized, pleated trousers. Masculine leather oxfords were given a playful punch of color at the toe, crossing shades of red with nude leather.
The ever present 60s-inspired square print was seen in a variety of proportions and often combined with embroidered or ruffled skirts, crossing colors, patterns, and limitations.
