Giorgio Armani Design & Style

Armani explained his take on fashion by saying, “I was the first to soften the image of men and harden the image of women. I dressed men in women’s fabrics and stole from men what women wanted and needed-the power suit.” The work Armani did for menswear is somewhat the work Gabrielle Chanel, whose work he “adores,” did for women. Simplifying, streamlining, lightning, freeing. Selecting neutral fabrics with no shiny ornaments. They will keep you company longer from a fashion outlook.
