This show contained many collections wrapped up in one EA experience.
In the middle there was an EA7 aside (military skiwear) and at the end, a new R-EA (recycled Emporio Armani) sub-collection in which Armani presented presumably all-renewed, all-navy pieces of attractive, tactical streetwear.
Oversized baseball jacket/parka hybrids in scarlet herringbone wool were mixed with matching pants, oversized black notch-collar puffer jackets with buffalo-check pants, and evening-biker looks (in pleather) with fine red irregular herringbone and oversized gilet; there was also a turn to expressively progressive formalwear: black jackets etched with silver beads and suits in silver-etched pinstripe.
After that, we progressed through the recycled workwear of the final R-EA chapter.
1. Herringbone emerged as a hero
2. Recycled fabrics and sustainable style in R-EA
3. Slick, aerodynamic black nylon and leather
