Take a closer look at the creations from the new Giorgio Armani Privé collection for Fall/Winter 2014 -2015 and see who made it out to Paris for the show.
The Giorgio Armani Borgonuovo signature line of luxury bags, first launched last year as a tribute to the designer’s beloved city of Milan, refreshes its offering through a selection of new hues and textures.
The iconic family of bags is re-interpreted for the new season, mixing contrasting prints and bold tones and adding new versions such as the shopper, in different variations, and bowler case, to the existing satchel and statement handbag.
Entirely handmade by skilled Italian craftsmen with the same attention given to a tailored suit, the bags feature a clean, sleek design and a multitude of styles.
The perfect accent to any look, a Borgonuovo bag adds flair and polish to an otherwise casual or bland ensemble and makes for the perfect transition piece to go from a day to night outfit.
Angelina Jolie and Amber Le Bon were recently seen with a Borgonuovo of their own in hand.
The new collection is already available in Giorgio Armani boutiques worldwide and online.
The Spring / Summer 2015 shows not only gave us an exciting array of new Emporio Armani and Giorgio Armani menswear designs, but also brought together three current faces of the Giorgio Armani fragrances: Giorgio Armani, Chris Pine, and Luca Dotto for Eau Pour Homme, Armani Code, and Acqua di Giò respectively.
To celebrate the occasion, both Chris Pine and Luca Dotto met up with Giorgio Armani, making for a nice little trifecta of sorts. Giorgio Armani himself is the face of Eau Pour Homme, the fragrance originally launched in 1984, which he fittingly calls “his own”.
Chris Pine, of Star Trek and Jack Ryan fame as well as recently having been chosen to represent the Armani Code fragrances, attended the Giorgio Armani show and beamed about the man backstage. “I just have so much respect for someone who built this incredible empire. His art speaks for itself!”.
Just the day before, a cocktail in Chis Pine’s honour had been held at the Bamboo Bar of the Armani hotel where both Giorgio Armani and Roberta Armani turned up to greet the actor. When asked about how he felt about being named the new face of Armani Code, he answered: “It is very flattering. Mr. Armani is a great artist - to be called upon to be the face of one of his brands, and something that he has worked so hard to develop, is just a great honour”.
Joining Chris at the Giorgio Armani show was Olympic swimmer Luca Dotto, who currently fronts the new digital campaign for Acqua Di Giò. On being called upon to star in the new Acqua Di Giò film on digital, he said: "It is an amazing experience and a dream come true. I'm not a professional model, I come from the sports world and I can only hope to deliver!”.
Here, they pose for a photo together and share a few words about their experience.

Hear what guests had to say:
'AVANT - GARDE'
THE BALANCE BETWEEN EXPERIMENTATION AND RIGOUR TYPICALLY ASSOCIATED WITH EMPORIO ARMANI HAS PRODUCED A MARKEDLY URBAN COLLECTION IN WHICH AVANT-GARDE ARCHITECTURAL FORMS ARE TRANSFORMED INTO THE PURE GRAPHIC LANGUAGE OF LINE AND COLOUR. BLACK MOVES TO BRIGHT OPTICAL WHITE AND GREY, MADE SURPRISINGLY FRESH BY THE GEOMETRY OF PARALLEL, CROSSING AND BROKEN LINES. LINE IS THE LEITMOTIF OF THE COLLECTION – SOMETIMES SHADED, OR PLACED HORIZONTALLY USING SPECIAL TECHNIQUES INCREASING ITS CONSISTENCY.
PEA COATS, PARKAS, MACKINTOSHES AND LITTLE JACKETS WITH RAGLAN SLEEVES ARE MADE OF LIGHTER, CRUNCHIER FABRICS AND FEATURE WHITE GEOMETRIC MOTIFS CREATED THROUGH PRINTING AND LASER CUTTING. NATURAL FABRICS, SUCH AS WOOL, ARE TREATED AND PAIRED WITH COTTON OR SILK, LEATHER, OR EVEN PRINTED PONYSKIN. SEAMS DISAPPEAR THANKS TO HEAT SEALING, UNDERLINING CLEANNESS OF FORM.
THE SUIT IS UPDATED WITH SMALL CHANGES THAT REVOLUTIONISE ITS LINE. THE SLIM JACKET HAS A SINGLE BUTTON FOR A LOW WAISTLINE AND THIN LAPELS AND PAGODA SHOULDERS. TROUSERS HAVE LITTLE GATHERS, ARE SLIGHTLY LOOSER AROUND THE HIPS AND ARE SLIM DOWN TOWARDS THE ANKLE.
SHIRTS ARE GIVEN NEW LIFE WITH GRAPHIC PRINTS AND UNEXPECTED SHAPES. MADE OF SILK/COTTON IN VARIOUS DIFFERENT WEIGHTS, THE SHIRT CAN TAKE THE LOOSE FORM OF A SWEATSHIRT, RECALL A JACKET WITH LAPELS, LOOK LIKE A SOFT T-SHIRT OR HAVE A ZIP AND A BIG HORIZONTAL RUBBERISED STRIPE IN A CONTRASTING COLOUR RIGHT AT THE FRONT.
ACCESSORIES MIRROR THE SPIRIT OF THE GARMENTS IN THE COLLECTION. SHOES HAVE AN ATHLETIC LOOK CLEARLY DERIVED FROM SPORTS FOOTWEAR: LACE-UPS, SLIP-ONS AND ANKLE BOOTS FEATURE THE CHARACTERISTIC RUBBER SOLE OF ACTIVE SPORTSWEAR. BACKPACKS, WHICH HAVE BECOME ICONIC EMPORIO ARMANI ACCESSORIES, LUGGAGE AND ENVELOPE BAGS FEATURE GRAPHICS AND DETAILING TO MATCH THE OUTERWEAR IN THE COLLECTION.
AEROSMITH'S JOE PERRY SHARES INSIGHT ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF DRESSING WITH PURPOSE:
RUN is the new project through which Giorgio Armani brings together his refined aesthetic and passion for technology. The result: an original line of sneakers, entirely made in Italy, for men and women, which combines elegance and performance.
Part of the Giorgio Armani accessories collection, the new sneakers have a dynamic and streamlined profile. Inspired by the world of running, they feature an extremely lightweight construction and comfortable fit. From a technical point of view, the sole is designed to perform like that of a true running shoe: the technical rubber midsole provides lightweight cushioning, the heel stabilizer absorbs shock, and grooves in the tread pattern enhance the shoe’s inflection points. In contrast to the hi-tech look and construction of the sole, the base is a multi-material combination of fine hides, colours and materials – pony skin, crocodile, felt, suede, and patent leather. The different combination of materials give the shoes a truly unique character. Entirely made in Italy, and available now for both men and women, these sneakers manage to successfully combine artisanal knowledge, technical innovation and the sophisticated elegance of Giorgio Armani’s style.
