Born into humble beginnings in 1934, Giorgio Armani dressed department store windows in Milan before training under Nino Cerruti. In 1975, he debuted his eponymous line with a single men’s collection. By the 80s, the Armani silhouette would define the power suit and — with a little help from Richard Gere in American Gigolo — bring a new refinement, neutral palette and classic Italian tailoring, not only to Hollywood, but the American mainstream. In 1981, he introduced Armani Jeans, a denim-based, youthful, more diverse collection than his signature high-end lines. Today, Armani stores number over 2000 worldwide, and his brand, which includes hotels, fragrances, diffusion lines, haute couture and housewares, has become a byword for the quality, elegance, and sophistication for which we look to Italian style.
