While New Year’s resolutions are made to be broken, we’re confident there’s one that a great number of us will have committed to this year that‘s sure to prove more successful than any other: making 2023 a year of destinations. If you’re anything like those of us here in the Man of Many office, you’ve vowed that the next 12 months or so will see you rekindle your wanderlust by discovering new places both at home and abroad that enable you to explore, indulge, and reconnect with the world beyond your computer and phone screens.
Man of Many and Emporio Armani ventured to the beautiful Bangalay Luxury Villas to shoot the below Spring/Summer 23 Emporio Armani Campaign.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re searching for that perfect stretch of idyllic white sand, your own personal oasis, or an undiscovered piece of vibrant, beautiful wilderness, this is the year to make it happen.
Having said that, anyone looking to make the most of such an experience will also need just the right outfits – if you ask us, few things set the perfect relaxed tone once you arrive at a destination quite like shoes that slip on and off with zero effort. Fortunately, the next evolution in must-have getaway footwear does precisely that, coming in the form of Emporio Armani’s Sabot, a cornerstone for the iconic brand’s escape-ready SS23 collection.
While the entire collection is designed to help you make the most of your destination getaway in 2023, the Sabot is pure destination-ready perfection. From pool lounging to beach strolling or seeking out your chosen locale’s hidden gems – be they bars, restaurants, or something entirely unique – you’ll be grateful for the Sabot’s mix of comfort and style (as well as its unique wave-esque design’s ability to turn heads).
This footwear icon-in-the-making fits perfectly with the rest of Emporio Armani’s SS23 collection. Whether you’re pairing the palm tree blouson with the matching reversible tote, embracing the island vibes served up by the cotton blouson jacket and cotton bermuda shorts, or keeping things luxuriously cool yet impossibly chic with one of the collection’s double-breasted suits – crafted from either pure linen or wool/cotton tropical weave – the Sabot is the only footwear you’ll need.
Further, while we’ve got our hearts set on the collection’s jacquard patchwork blouson, accompanying jacquard patchwork pants, and matching woven hat, you may be more drawn to the styling of the double gabardine cotton blouson and cotton pants, topped off with the canvas baseball hat, or the timeless striped ottoman stitched sweater. No matter what catches your eye, we’d recommend starting with the Sabot and building from there.
