T
he Armani man is sophisticated, masculine, and mysterious; this season's menswear collection was no exception, despite its namesake, "Printwear." The mystique of the sleek, Italian gentleman was undisturbed: the prints employed were in fact so subtle, that one might not even consider them prints when juxtaposed alongside those from the likes of Versace and Marni. The monochromatic tone of the show was dominated by cobalt, silver, navy, white, and slate grey; the cool palette was complemented by the light tailoring of the suits.

Among the prints in the collection were checks, plaids, zigzags, and houndstooth.

The amalgamation of the color palette and the check patterns which faded into ombré resulted in a cool, hushed, and serene color story.

Weave patterns which resembled scales gave the collection an almost science-fiction-like quality, a motif predominant in Armani's last couture collection.

Gauze-like sweaters and cardigans established a light, quiet, and casual look to the collection.

The collection featured a trend in detailing: trousers featured tapering via buttons at the ankle.

This season, Armani has chosen to appeal to a more relaxed, casual crowd, with the thinner, lighter fabric used on the deconstructed jackets and pants. The collection also featured a raised waistline.

The timeless charm of an Oxford enables the man wearing them to transition from work to drinks with ease. The oxfords, in all forms of leather, complete that dapper, Milanese look that has become synonymous with the house. For a less formal, but just as charming look, the boat shoes with which Armani has accented his designs are the way to go. See all accessories here.
