Let GIORGIO ARMANI be your wingman this party season
When it comes to formal suiting this month, it’s hard to look past Armani
Everythursday night, the great, the good and the genetically-blessed of Milan (so, most of them then) descend on the Armani/privé Club for a “members only” evening that has become an exclusive, seductively-lit fixture within the city’s high-end social calendar.
Inspired by the earlyhours ebb and flow of his own Rsvp-only Shangri-la, Giorgio Armani’s latest capsule collection is not only a celebration of beautiful Italian eveningwear — midnight blue jacquard blazers, patent leather loafers, pristine white cottontwill shirting and immaculate textures — but also a demonstration in alternative black tie. Both are perfect for late nights out on the rarefied tiles of Italy’s capitale della moda, and beyond.
