Bravo to Giorgio Armani for supporting young Italian designers!


Andrea Pompilio will be the first guest designer to show at Armani Teatro later this month.


Milan needs the freshness of some new faces on the design schedule.  I’ve been pulling for Andrea Pompilio since I first saw his collection in 2011.


Bravo and good luck to both designers this season!

    Bravo indeed, this needs to happen more and more in fashion. And yes especially Milan where new talent really seems to have a long haul and a hard way to go with little support. Great news, hope it inspired other established and new designers to partner up.

    Forgive my ignorance, but where can I get one of those chimp shirts? Are they available online? (I’ll pass on the aerodynmic hat.)

    The shirt is of course the item which jumps out, however I like the part sheepskin hat and belt.

    Hail to Armani (my favorite glasses are Armani), and let’s talk about the dude in the next picture.

    A monkey shirt, a belt from a physical therapy supply catalog, white socks, and flood pants. I wish the lighting had been better. Then I could determine what sort of hat he’s wearing to hide the piece of styrofoam lodged in his head.

    He’s perfect.

    Young designers should be supported, the industry needs new talents so that they could learn from the successful designers.
    Respect for Armani.

    Fantastic to see fashion always move forward. There are so many hidden talents graduating at this exact moment, it’s great there are more and more chances for them in high fashion. It would actually be weird in times like these to not do as Armani does.

    Armani stays on top of my list, when I think about the few creative people with that hero factor, that just have a true and unique vision about what they do. He said something like ” I couldn’t invent the jacket, so I spend my life reinventing it”. Armani forever, he is another guy I would love to have a coffe with!!

    This is a very interesting article, how Armani started in the industry and how his legacy has been a very big influence trough out the years. As a fashion student I found it very appealing to know about the journey and the way he entered the fashion world in such a particular way.His aesthetic has remain very influential in the fashion industry so much that his 70′s silhouette has influence the current 70′s vibe. Armani ad ad business strategies has influenced not only women in the past few generations but also men that are interested in the sense of style and look that the brand offers. no doubt that this was a very informative piece.
