We are pleased to announce Films of City Frames, Giorgio Armani’s initiative to connect with the world of cinema through the rich fictional universe built around Frames of Life.
This is a comprehensive joint project, created in collaboration with Rai Cinema, which involves the most promising students of six prestigious international film schools. The students will be given the task of creating short films that feature caught moments, metropolitan landscapes, and emotional situations, using Giorgio Armani’s new Frames of Life eyewear as a perceptual filter. Eyewear becomes synonymous with point of view, an instrument used to emphasise and express feelings, to tell stories of special encounters and urban adventures.
Paolo Sorrentino, Golden Globe, BAFTA and Academy Award-winning director , has enthusiastically joined this initiative to support young talent. To create the pilot film that will launch the project, Sorrentino has chosen Piero Messina, who graduated from the Italian Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia and works as his assistant director. The young director has produced an emotional, lyrical short film inspired by Louis-Ferdinand Céline’s first novel, Journey to the End of the Night, using unseen sequences from Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty.
Giorgio Armani says, “I felt that Paolo would be the best person to share this project with. He has a clear and inspiring view of reality; he captures the most exciting and poetic aspects of everyday life with a neat, contemporary style. Above all, I think that Paolo embodies the real magic of cinema, which is a barrier-free language: he speaks to everyone, but with an undeniably Italian eye. And this is precisely what we wanted students to grasp: the importance of having a personal perspective.”
The stages of production of these short films will be documented on a dedicated section on the website www.framesoflife.com and shared on Armani's social media channels. Films of City Frames will be a visual and narrative collage that captures the growing wealth of the contemporary metropolis without stereotyping it, using individual points of view as a filter and to create work that possesses distinctive character.

A cocktail was held to celebrate the opening of the new Giorgio Armani Accessories store in Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and to showcase the new men’s and women’s Spring/Summer 2014 collections.
The occasion also marked the debut of the new iconic Giorgio Armani Borgonuovo Bag, a satchel named after the eponymous street in Milan - a tribute to the city and to fine Italian craftsmanship.
Giorgio Armani has said that "Accessories are no longer a simple addition to the collections; over time they have become a real point of strength of the Armani style and represent an increasingly important part of the group's business. It seemed to me that it was time to give proper visibility to the accessories collections for men and women in a store specifically designed to showcase these. The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is the perfect location, as it is a historically important building in Milan and a high-traffic destination for international tourism."
Take a look at some friends of the house that have been spotted wearing the bag.

While sport is synonymous with body language, the values it teaches are what gives each gesture a deeper meaning that goes beyond the action itself. Determination, perseverance, friendship and strength are the values that lie at the very heart of this Giorgio Armani’s institutional campaign, focused on striking images and their evocative power.
The short film, directed by photographer Kurt Markus, was shot on super-8 film to obtain its stand-out grain and density. Powerful images, portraying men and women in action who rediscover the endless expressions of their body and the behavioural philosophy that they reflect, such as a balance, determination, team spirit, elegance.
The partnership between Giorgio Armani and CONI (Italian National Olympic Committee) is set to continue. Indeed, Armani, as official outfitter, will supply the entire sports kit and all formal wear worn by the Olympic and Paralympic athletes in the Italian teams participating at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics and the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016.
This initiative is the fruit of a three-year partnership agreement between the Armani Group and CONI, and is further proof of the strong relationship that links the designer to the world of sport.
“Italy is built on the country’s passion for sport, a pastime that promotes positive values and brings people together. I am extremely pleased to renew my collaboration with CONI for the 2014 Winter Olympics and the Olympic Games in 2016, two important occasions for our athletes, who will have our utmost support” says Giorgio Armani.
The wide range of sportswear supplied to the athletes from the Armani EA7 line will include the clothes and accessories worn by the athletes during the day, except when competing, for the entire duration of the games in which they are participating.
The garments supplied to the Italian team for the games in Sochi, for both men and women, will also be sold on the Italian sportswear market. All garments bear CONI logo and Olympic rings on the chest, while on the back they feature the original silver ITALY logo.
The ski suit, in navy blue, is in stretch fabric and features an ergonomic design that ensures maximum comfort for the wearer. The seams are heat-sealed and decorated with the colours of the Italian flag, which can also be found inside the hood. The second layer of the suit is available in white or navy blue.
The same colours and decorations also feature in the leisurewear, which includes cotton sweatshirts, tracksuits, long- and short-sleeved polo shirts, and T-shirts. A range of accessories completes the collection: ski hat, scarf, gloves, glasses and backpack, all in navy blue with Italian tricolour details.
The watch is not part of the official uniform but it was designed with the fans in mind as a way for them to support the team at the games in Sochi.
