Emporio Armani's collection of dresses is packed with flattering cuts, colorful prints and eye-catching details. From maxi dresses to midi and mini styles, the label’s pieces will have you covered for a range of occasions. There is a Emporio Armani dress to suit; whether you’re after an airy cotton-blend poplin version that’s perfect for summer days, or an elegant choice for dinners and events.
Demonstrating ladylike dressing with a twist, Emporio Armani crafts its dresses from lightweight, flowy fabrics like cotton, lace and silk. The brand’s dresses deserve to take center stage, so you need only add simple accessories.
Whether your garment is cotton or cotton-blend, there is the possibility that it may shrink if not properly cared for. Generally, cotton should be hand or machine washed at 30°C or below. This will help avoid color fading and dye transfer. Allow to air dry naturally, and give garments a gentle stretch to restore shapes as soon as they come out of the wash.
Garments that are crafted from lace, or trimmed with the delicate fabric, will need special care to ensure they stay looking their best. If your lace becomes stained, it will need to be cleaned quickly as stains can stick to the lace fibers permanently if left untreated for too long. We advise hand washing your lace garment in warm water, unless specified on the item’s care label. Let the lace soak for roughly 30 minutes, before rinsing with water to wash away any remaining soap. Rinse well, and press out excess water. Avoid rubbing the lace fabric, instead use a gentle plunging action to remove any dirt or stains. Lay flat and allow to dry naturally, before folding and storing in a drawer. It is advised to avoid using the washing machine to clean lace, but if it is required to remove tough stains, always use a gentle wash cycle and place in a laundry bag to protect against damage.
Few fabrics feel as luxurious as silk, and in order to keep it in its original condition for longer, we recommend carefully following the care instructions found on each individual item’s label. Some silk products are strictly dry clean only, while others can be hand washed or machine washed on a gentle, cold-water cycle. It is advised to clean silk using a lower temperature to other fabrics, as hot water can affect the material’s natural properties and damage to the fibers. We also recommend selecting a specially-formulated silk detergent, which will be gentler on its natural proteins. Avoid spot cleaning silk, as rubbing in only one area can cause the material to lighten in just that spot. Avoid putting in the tumble dryer and instead lay flat to dry naturally. If you must wash in the machine, select a gentle, cold-water cycle, place in a laundry bag for additional protection and promptly remove from the washer to reduce any wrinkles. If the care label on your silk item says that it can be ironed, then use a low iron setting and ideally iron while it is still slightly damp.
