How would you celebrate 40 years in fashion? Just weeks ago in Milan, on the exact same day that the city’s 2015 Expo opened, Giorgio Armani nodded at the past and the future with Armani/Silos—a museum of his work and times. Set to be open through the end of October, the first exhibit is a showcase of the sleek, structured yet expressive looks that established the designer’s name in Italy, America and beyond. Says Architectural Digest: “The straightforward structure, named Armani/Silos for the building’s origins as a 1950s granary, is yet another testament to the legendary designer’s practiced minimalism.”
“I thought that bringing clothes, accessories, bags and technical drawings together in a single space, as an archiving project with a particular, personal perspective, would be a concrete way to turn the past into a foundation for the future,” said Armani.
