It’s no secret that Emporio Armani is a staunchly Italian brand, so it makes sense that, for their Spring campaign (which debuts exclusively on Style.com), the label took its easy his-and-hers looks to southern Italy’s seaside for a sun-dusted film and photo shoot. Naturally, the film embraces that fiery Italian passion we’ve come to know and love. Models seemingly long for one another while lounging on a Mediterranean beach as waves rush over Emporio’s swimwear, stare off into cloud-dusted horizons, and stroll through flowery fields—a galloping white horse even makes an appearance. Sure, it may only be January, but Emporio’s new campaign has us in the mood for a spring fling.
Watching the models shoot down the runway at this morning’s Roberto Cavalli show, we found ourselves doing a triple take at look 41. Is that a young Emmanuelle Alt? It was Brazilian up-and-comer Muriel Beal (pictured), who we also saw at Emporio Armani on Thursday as well as Proenza Schouler and Theyskens’ Theory during NYFW, but with those razor-edged cheekbones, that shock of dark hair, the spray of freckles—there’s no denying Beal’s resemblance to the lanky Paris Vogue editor. It’s not the first time we’ve noticed doppelgängers for fashion’s power players on the catwalks, either. In-demand Marie Piovesan would easily pass for a young Marie-Amélie Sauvé, while we’ve imagined Kel Markey to be Carine Roitfeld’s long-lost love child.
For Fall, Giorgio Armani channeled film noir for his Emporio Armani collection. For the accompanying campaign, Armani and his lensman, Mario Sorrenti, mined the same vein—this time mixed with the urban sensibility that underscores the Emporio label. Iselin Steiro and Simon Nessman star in the print spots, as well as Sorrenti’s murky, atmospheric new video, debuting exclusively here on Style.com. The print ads have already begun to appear in July glossies; check out the video above, and keep reading to go behind the scenes with Sorrenti, Steiro, and Nessman on set.

The pre-fall shows continue to roll out: We’ve added Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani, and later today we’ll be publishing Alexander Wang’s pre-fall ’11 collection. Wang’s famous for wearing his hallmark stretched-out T-shirt to even the occasional black tie gala, but for the ladies, he’s proposing a more traditional formalwear—the tux. His slouchy take on the menswear staple was shown with a white turtleneck (above center). He’s not the only one offering gender-bending women’s tuxedos, either. Armani showed them for both his eponymous and his Emporio collections (that’s the GA tux, above right), and Burberry’s Christopher Bailey had slinky his-and-hers versions (hers, above left) at Burberry Prorsum‘s presentation last month. And at Reed Krakoff and Jason Wu, the designers tweaked tradition by cutting out a piece: Krakoff (below left) lost the shirt, while Wu (below right) blew up the bowtie and nixed the jacket.
