Giorgio Armani On Exhibit
Giorgio Armani has signed an agreement with the Milan municipality for the creation of a new exhibition center located in front of the fashion company’s headquarters on Milan’s Via Bergognone. Armani first talked about this project after his Emporio show at the end of June, saying it was meant to coincide with the Universal Exposition in Milan next year, and that he saw it as a museum-archive to be called Armani Silos.
The Italian designer and entrepreneur will finance the works for the requalification of a former Nestlé factory that will host a permanent exhibition of Armani’s creations and drawings. In addition, the center, which will be included in Milan’s museum network, will house a series of initiatives linked with fashion and design with a focus on the promotion of works by new designers, and will offer learning spaces, including classes and a library.

The partnership will be utilized in two phases and will include L’Oréal Professionnel,Kérastase, Redken, Matrix, Pureology, Shu Uemura Art of Hair, Mizani and Essie Professional. Starting Monday, L’Oréal will customize the existing tools on StyleSeat. It will add its branding, profile badges and a variety of other elements to the site so that they have brand representation. The second phase, which launches late this fall, is e-commerce. L’Oréal Professional Products Division and StyleSeat will offer salons their own mini sites so that they can sell directly to their clients.
