Emporio Armani's autumn/winter collection features feminine outfits in shades of grey, brown and black with a dash of purple. Puffy taffeta skirts (right; $2,300) go with slim fitted jackets featuring lifted shoulders (right; $6,500), while delicate gauze blouses are adorned with silk ribbons and bows that escape from beneath jacket sleeves and collars. In addition to the 1940s and 50s looks matched with hats and clutches, the collection also draws on 60s-inspired, high-waisted styles, including a woollen coat in a Prince of Wales check (left; $2,700).
