Could you comment on the fact that, when you photographed Mr Armani before (as reproduced in your book) you said that he would only be photoraphed against a dark background which showed off his white hair. Yet here vhe allows you to photograph him against a pale sky…???
you're right Scott, he would still look as quietly sophisticated and smart regardless of who it was. it is so refreshing to constantly see well dressed men whenever I visit here! Older gentlemen in particular who still value their appearance as much as they did in their 20's…that really means something special to me. I just sent you a picture into the vintage photo contest of my mother Karina…I hope you enjoy it! xx
I Doubt hes wearing his own brand… thats a simple man….. hes approaching the 80 y/o now…and thats the new 50s … u can do everything when u take goiod care of yourself…. i admire him a lot…. he still makes clothes for every budget available.. and thats a true genius shot…. haute couture for the ones who can pay for it.. and still… the basic for the ones who simply cannot or for the ones who live basic…. i may not like most of his garments… but it doesnt matter… he hit the spot… and i bow my head for him
Great picture – much more interesting than the heavily doctored picture of him where he appears to be far younger than he really is. His fashion is a bit greige for me but he certainly looks great on this picture and he has had the genius to diversify brands, lines – & successfully so!
I worked for his company in the late 90's – early 00's. I always admired his class, elegance, and simple style. He looks old here, but still radiates the same classic grace. I may not wear much of his clothes anymore, but I will always be a fan. G-d bless Armani!
Hail to the King! Elegance personified. I have been a fan of his for 3 decades. His clothes are timeless, almost. The great thing is that you can dress up and/or down, from A/X to Giorgio Armani, and the look is seamless.
Great man, great gentleman! I am 63 yo, and I love to dress Armani since the seventies. So it is more than 30 years of admiration. Was like that when I lived in London, Rome and now back in Rio de Janeiro. Congratulations Sartorialist, Congratulations Armani Keep well!
Looking at his expression I have the feeling that Mr. Armani would not have let anybody else take this photo. He was just glad to see you, Scott! :-) You can see it on his face. Plus he liked the idea to be a street fashion ikon as well :-))
