Mood board: Returning to Milan after a season showing in Paris, the house offered little bit of everything for the Emporio Armani woman, with an equally diverse soundtrack: floral scribble-prints, Prince of Wales check, shimmering paillettes, polka-dots, and even a huge sleeping bag-like puffer jacket.

Best in show: A series of print-focused pieces at the start of the expansive collection, imagined in modern synthetic materials: checks were printed onto long dresses, trousers and coats, crafted in transparent PVC.

Finishing touches: Among the diverse accessories offering, square and rectangular bags with metal chains came in miniature proportions, some in read and black leather, even clipped to the belts of trousers.
