"These clothes are less casual, less easygoing. They're layered, yes, but not thrown on," the designer said of his AW15 Emporio Armani collection, which was partly inspired by the sophisticated manner of a man in uniform.

Jackets with small lapels and cardigans with multiple zips headlined this unique collection, which came in unstructured jersey or Harris Tweed, fitting models like a tight T-shirt. While fez-style hats were worn tilted as a chic accessory, as well as round futuristic sunglasses, adding an oriental and other-worldly vibe to the tailored collection.

There were ribbed jackets with shawl collars and delicate peacoats, with trousers seen in an array of comfortable fabrics, coming in sportswear silhouettes and high-waisted styles worn with leather belts (a style you could definitely see Mr. Armani himself sporting). 

Adding some cultural influences to the collection – adorned in lots of navy, black, caramel and grey – Armani also used flashes of gold and silver as artsy brush strokes on knit jackets that were inspired by Japanese calligraphy.
