Giorgio Armani subsequently saw himself become a household name after his clothes appeared on Richard Gere in the iconic 1980 movie American Gigolo and he has remained one of Hollywood’s favorite designers ever since.
In 1981 the young line Emporio Armani was introduced - today Giorgio Armani’s flawless style has branched off into a range of collections from the Haute Couture line Armani Privé, to the casual approach of Armani Jeans. An understated sense of chic and excellent craftsmanship are the common threads that bind the Armani World together.
