This past June, Giorgio Armani opened Armani/Silos, his own museum in the center of Milan, to showcase his life and work. It’s been a big year for the house of Armani—but not as big as 1975 was.
Forty years ago the legendary brand began, and today it is one of the most successful fashion companies in the world. But this is an industry that tends to favor the future. There were celebrations around the anniversary and the Armani/Silos opening, and then it was time to get back to work.
Recently in Milan, the house presented their spring ’16 collection, and we were lucky enough to get some time with the iconic designer himself.
Here’s what Giorgio Armani had to say to our Senior Writer Laura Cassidy about consistency, passion, dedication and desire.
