Everything was light at Emporio Armani, from the fabric, to the color, to the mood.

In a chat with reporters after the show, Armani said his latest collection for summer 2014 was aimed at a woman with "tamed energy."

There was little wild in the collection. Instead the positive vibes were sent out through the youthful styles fashioned in pretty pastel shades and diaphanous materials.

The theme of the collection was the water lily, which in Italian is also the word for a nymph. The color palette drew inspiration from a romantic pond, like the one favored by the French artist Monet, from the pale water blues, to the petal pinks and yellows, to the subtle leaf greens.

The light and loose styles are mainly variations of Armani's staple jacket and pants combination. Next summer, the jacket can be either demurely cropped or long and flowing. The new Armani trouser is extra wide and cropped mid-calf.
