MILAN — Italian fashion label Emporio Armani is going coed for its show in September.

As Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana president Carlo Capasa revealed during a press conference on Thursday presenting the schedule of the upcoming Milan Men’s Fashion Week, the fashion label will skip its traditional men’s fashion show in June to host a coed runway show in September during the city’s Women’s Fashion Week. The coed show won’t take place at Giorgio Armani’s theater on Via Bergognone, as per tradition, but in a still-undisclosed location. That said, the signature Giorgio Armani men’s show will be held on June 18 at the theater.

Emporio Armani joins the likes of Gucci, Bottega Veneta, and Furla. At the press conference, Capasa also announced new entries in the June calendar including London-based Besfxxk and Italian label Vìen. Korean fashion house Spyder, French brand Ih Nom Uh Nit and Italian fashion houses Doucal’s and Triple RRR, the line designed by Roberto Cavalli’s son Robert Cavalli. Diesel Black Gold will not hold a show, but will present its spring collection to retailers, while the second Diesel Red Tag capsule collection will be unveiled on the catwalk.

Men’s Fashion Week, originally scheduled June 16-19, is now running June 15-18, and will include a range of women’s labels unveiling women’s resort 2019 and spring 2019 lineups. Along with the already announced shows and presentations of Alberta Ferretti and Stella McCartney, hosting events on June 15 and 18 respectively, Finnish label Aalto will make its Milanese debut with a show of the brand’s resort 2019 collection, and Sunnei will present its first women’s range with a coed show on June 17.
