Giorgio Armani Latest Designer for ‘Vogue On’ Series
Giorgio Armani is the latest designer to be celebrated by one of the world’s most powerful and renowned fashion companies. Armani will follow in the footsteps of some of the greatest designers the world has ever seen, including Alexander McQueen, Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli and Christian Dior.
Written by Katie Phillips, the tribute denotes the designer’s journey through life, from his childhood years in Piacenza through to his industry domination, colossal empire, and of course the creation of the Armani jacket.
Speaking of the book and her deep exploration of the designer, Phillips explained “I feel that his capacity for thinking in a modern, visionary way is quite extraordinary. To meet him is to realise that those ice-blue eyes miss nothing. You really have to see Armani in the light of other greats like – I would say – Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Cardin and Jeanne Lanvin because he, like them, has done something to move the history of fashion on – to change the structure of the way we dress.”
The forthcoming issue will be released on 4th July.
