Giorgio Armani’s ‘Si Rose Signature’ dressed in a new couture design

Giorgio-Armani-Si-Rose-Signature_Cate-Blanchett-1-s

Launched in 2016, Giorgio Armani’s ‘Si Rose Signature’ is an ode to the modern woman, with a busy and bold, yet elegant persona. Like a rose—the scent’s hallmark ingrediënt – ‘Si Rose Signature’ blooms each springtime with a collector edition bottle this 2017. With actress Cate Blanchett as the face of this campaign, the scent is reinterpreted with a new couture design showcasing the fragrance’s feminine and sensual side.

Created by perfumer Julie Massé, who created ‘Si Intense’ with Christine Nagel, this Eau de Parfum stands out with its twin rose notes. In fact, ‘Si Rose Signature’ inherits the signature May Rose notes of ‘Si’ and pairs them with Damask Rose.

Giorgio Armani’s ‘Si Rose Signature’ fragrance remains unchanged in this collector’s edition, with the same floral aroma as the 2016 original. The scent has a double rose accord – with May Rose and Turkish Rose – enriched with notes of bergamot, mandarin, freesia and blackcurrant aromas of Cassis Neo Jungle Essence. This is matched with iris and osmanthus, ambrette and vanilla notes. This is followed by base notes of ambrette absolute, Pure Jungle vanilla extract and patchouli.

This year, Giorgio Armani has dressed ‘Si Rose Signature’ in a silky powder pink ribbon that winds around the fragrance’s Onyx lid and falls down over the glass bottle, where its two ends cross. The ribbon evokes the décolleté of a haute couture gown, with delicate and refined style. A discreet black circular badge bearing the fragrance’s name holds the ribbon’s crossover ends in place, echoing the deep black finish of the lid, which has golden rings at its base.

An ode to femininity: Giorgio Armani features actress Cate Blanchett in a stunning new campaign for ‘Si Rose Signature’.

Giorgio Armani ‘Si Rose Signature’ is available in 50 ml (€89) and 100ml (€128) Eau de Parfum. The 2017 limited edition collector edition of ‘Si Rose Signature’ is available now.

Giorgio Armani, The Last Emperor

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).

GIORGIO-ARMANI

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

Giorgio Armani creates clothing and accessories line for Bugatti

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.

003_Lifestyle_Capsule_Collection_Rembrandt_Bugatti

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.

Giorgio Armani

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.

02_GiorgioArmaniForBugatti

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.

Giorgio Armani Book Rizzoli

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.
