Androgynous Luxe Velvet Looks

The Emporio Armani Pre-Fall 2012 Collection Features Rich Fabrics

— December 23, 2011 — Fashion
Pre-Fall collections are not about incorporating a shock factor or producing an awe-inspiring show, but rather, are about showcasing what's to come during Fall Fashion Week in a subdued and sophisticated way, which is exactly what the Emporio Armani Pre-Fall 2012 collection does.

While other fashion houses like Chanel went all out and produced an intricate show and gorgeous, but not-so-wearable dresses (in typical over-the-top Karl Lagerfeld fashion), the Emporio Armani Pre-Fall 2012 collection features luxurious separates that are completely wearable to work on a daily basis. Not only that, but there are some stunning cocktail dresses in the mix that are incredibly hard to resist.

From velvet to lush fringe trims, the Emporio Armani Pre-Fall 2012 collection is effortlessly chic and still completely stunning.
