Something Extra | Thursday
Giorgio Armani staged his first live runway show since the pandemic, and following a fall that landed him in the hospital for two weeks, in Italy on Monday. The 86-year-old designer relied on Pantaleo (Leo) Dell’Orco , who joined Armani in 1977 and heads menswear for all Armani’s collections: Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani and Armani Exchange, for the menswear show. Citing Dell’Orco and his niece Silvana Armani, who fills the same roles for womenswear, Armani, who has usually demurred from answering questions about the future of his fashion empire, said, “I am preparing my future with the people around me”. Something Extra brings you the highlights from the show.
