MILAN, Jan 20, 2009 / FW/ — Showing sensitivity to the current economic situation, Giorgio Armani chose to focus on the working class for his Emporio Armani Menswear Fall 2009 collection proposing a wide gamut of sporty pieces for the dock workers all the way to the sharply tailored formal pieces for the financial district habitués.
Slim fitting jackets and generously cut trousers, there is an air of pent up energy in the collection as if everyone is just waiting for even just a small signal and they will all jump into action. There was no feeling of lethargy. Even the leisure suits project an attitude of conserving energy so that when there is a call to action, they could easily respond.
An interesting proposal this season is the high-waist trouser. Other than that, this is a signature Emporio Armani collection.
