Italian fashion house Giorgio Armani is gearing up to launch a 3-piece skincare line dedicated to guys. Armani had previously launched a skin care line for men, in 2008, but it was sadly being discontinued. The launch of the new collection is slated for June!
Part of the ‘Emporio’, Armani Beauty, a brand that mainly focuses on fragrances, has grown to become a three-axes brand that combines fragrances, makeup, and now skin care. The new collection focuses on two trends: a trend of grooming, and that of consumers’ growing demand for sustainable products. The collection, therefore, features formulas that are biodegradable, made of 99% natural ingredients, and come in eco-designed packaging. The three-part range includes the Face Wash, the Toner, and a Moisturizer for face and eyes.
Armani Men The Face Wash
Conceived with purity in mind, both in terms of formula and packaging, The Face Wash perfectly stands out with 99% naturally derived ingredients and a 98% biodegradable formula. Enriched with exfoliating Birch Bark Extract and Jojoba Pearls, this daily cleanser leaves skin perfectly clean, balanced and relieved with a clearer complexion and prevention from a dull, tired appearance.
Armani Men The Face Wash comes in a 150ml tube. The tube, 100% designed for recycling, and elegant tearable box made with carton, are produced using certified and controlled material.
Armani Men The Toner
Conceived with purity in mind, both in terms of formula and packaging, The Toner perfectly stands out with 94% naturally derived ingredients and a 97% biodegradable formula. Enriched with hydrating Baobab Leaf extract, anti-inflammatory Birch Bark extract & a soothing vitamin cocktail, this toner works as a refreshing anti-fatigue booster to offer a vibrantly clear and energized complexion while calming and soothing even the most sensitive skin.
The bottle, 100% designed for recycling, and elegant tearable box made with carton, are produced using certified and controlled material. Armani Men The Toner comes in a 100ml bottle
Armani Men The Moisturizer Face & Eyes
Conceived with purity in mind, both in terms of formula and packaging, the The Moisturizer Face & Eyes perfectly stands out with 98% naturally derived ingredients and a 96% biodegradable formula. Enriched with anti-aging Vitality complex, hydrating & anti-wrinkle Baobab Leaf extract and anti-inflammatory Birch Bark extract, this moisturizer boosts skin with energy, revives skin’s natural balance and fights signs of fatigue.
Armani Men The Moisturizer Face & Eyes comes in a 50ml bottle. The bottle, 100% designed for recycling, and elegant tearable box made with carton, are produced using certified and controlled material.
The Armani Men skin care line is dermatologically tested and is formulated without controversial ingredients — no silicon, paraben, mineral oil, sulfate, MIT, EDTA and PEG. The collection will launch exclusively online in the USA in the first week of June, then in Canada and Europe later that month. Asia, outside of China, will see the range in the second half of the year, and it will arrive in China in 2020.
Officially the most succesfull Italian designer ever (his fortune is estimated over $8.5 billion!), Signor Giorgio Armani celebrates his 82th birthday today (born 11th July 1934).
Particularly noted for his menswear. He is known today for his clean, tailored lines. He formed his company, Armani, in 1975, and by 2001 was acclaimed as the most successful designer that Italy has produced, with an annual turnover of $1.6 billion and a personal fortune of $8.5 billion as of 2013. He is credited with pioneering red-carpet fashion.
As famous for underpants, watches and accessories as for his sharp suits, his has been the style of choice for generations of stars of music, sport and the silver screen, politicians, dignitaries and even the Milanese police force.
He was born in the northern Italian town of Piacenza, of Armenian and Italian descent. After military service as a young man, he became a window dresser at La Rinascente department store in Milan.
Having worked on a freelance basis for myriad designers including Zegna, Cerruti and Loewe, the first pieces he designed under his own name were a series of leather bomber jackets in 1970.
While building his fashion empire, he also designed costumes for more than one hundred films including American Gigolo and The Untouchables
When in 1975 he brought out a womenswear line using men’s fabrics, he set the wheels in motion for the ‘power dressing’ look that became synonymous with the 80s.
Among his many commissions, he designed the costume worn by Spanish bullfighter Cayetano Rivera Ordóñez, the suits for the England football team (twice), and the cover of a book of gospels for the Pope
With a list price of $2,6 million, you can rest assured that most Bugatti Chiron owners won’t be getting behind the wheel wearing clothes from H&M and carrying bags they picked up at Walmart.
They’re more likely to be wearing, say, Armani, which is likely why the exotic automaker has teamed up with that very Italian fashion house for the latest additions to the Ettore Bugatti collection.
The ‘Giorgio Armani for Bugatti’ range is a high-end men’s clothing and accessories collection aimed at sophisticated gents. It features superior-quality materials, such as calfskin, crocodile, cashmere and suede, used to craft a series of limited edition and individually numbered garments and accessories. The items are set to incorporate Bugatti signatures like the horseshoe-shaped grille and French racing blue.
It was very natural to come together with Bugatti. We both worship things that are made well, made to last, created out of the best materials. The capsule condenses this encounter in a series of clothes and accessories designed to be worn by men who only look for the best and who live an active and dynamic lifestyle.
Due to land for the autumn/winter 2016-2017 season, the collection uses the symbols of the Bugatti brand, notably the horseshoe emblem seen on the front of its cars and the color blue. More generally, the collection’s color palette ranges from blue to cognac to khaki green.
The collection includes a wide range of luxury accessories, including a handmade calfskin briefcase – also available in matte crocodile skin – a weekend bag, belts, washbags, wallets and iPad cases.
As for clothing, the ‘Giorgio Armani for Bugatti’ range features a coat and a jacket in double cashmere, cashmere sweaters, a leather jacket, denim jeans, a cashmere cap, a sports blazer in crocodile skin and calfskin sneakers.
Look for the first items to be available in Bugatti lifestyle boutiques and in selected Armani boutiques starting in August. Just don’t ask how much they’ll cost, because as the old saying goes, if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.
The maestro of clothing himself, Mr. Giorgio Armani is releasing a self-titled book with Rizzoli (Click photo to enlarge).
Italian fashion designer, Giorgio Armani’s autobiography was unveiled on the eve of his eponymous fashion house’s 40th-anniversary after his Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 runway show. Published by Rizzoli New York, covers the designer’s personal life, house’s history, the creative process behind the designer’s collections and his impact on women’s fashion and red-carpet glamour.
Giorgio Armani was born in 1934 in Piacenza, Italy. The ravages of World War II marred his childhood, where the young Armani lived in fear of being bombed. He describes how he felt robbed of his youth, never having the carefree upbringing of so many other children. His father worked at the Fascist headquarters, and Armani notes that his father’s required fascist uniform inspired him, along with the black and white movies that were his escape.
