There were no surprises at Emporio Armani today—feminine shapes, muted grays, khakis and blues and a very flirty attitude ruled the runway. The pantsuit was a key look, particularly single-breasted, narrow jackets and wide, low-slung trousers that ended just above the ankle with an uneven hem. Feather-light day dresses, worn with sun hats, scarf-blouses with knee-length skirts, and double-layered slips are perfect summer garden-party attire.

Armani kept the mood simple for evening, sprinkling strapless, one-shouldered or spaghetti-strap dresses with silver beads. Three gelatto-colored miniskirts with matching transparent shirts closed the show.
