Armani is one of the biggest fashion empires in the World and they offer a range of high-quality menswear, womenswear, and accessories through a number of sub-brands. Giorgio Armani is sub-brand behind Armani’s signature line of men’s and women’s apparel as well as a range of accessories including Giorgio Armani’s sunglasses collections. Any study of Giorgio Armani’s history is a study of the Armani brand as a whole. The Armani fashion house was founded in Milan in 1975 by Giorgio Armani and Sergio Galeotti. The brand gradually expanded its profile in the fashion industry and by the end of the 90s it had over 200 stores throughout the World, all ran from its headquarters in Milan.
Giorgio Armani — the man behind the brand — gained his first experience in the fashion industry in the 1960s, after he spent a brief period in the military. Giorgio Armani entered into the fashion industry as a window dresser. His keen aesthetic eye and knowledge of different textiles shone out and he was offered a job as a designer for Hitman. In 1975, with several years’ experience under his belt, Giorgio Armani left Hitman and founded his own fashion label, first with a menswear collection, then a womenswear collection the following year.
Famously, Giorgio Armani absolutely revolutionised the clothes women could wear in the workplace. Although he started with menswear, he arguably found his perfect form with womenswear! Because of Giorgio Armani, women in the 80s suddenly had access to smart pantsuits, jackets, and other clothing that allowed them to look great but also strong and powerful.
The Armani fashion empire has since spread out into various sub-brands that appeal to different demographics. Each sub-brand has its own aesthetic; it’s important to find the right Armani sub-brand to match your personal sense of style. Giorgio Armani is Armani’s high-end fashion label, meaning it designs the most elegant and high-status clothing, accessories, and eyewear the Armani studios have to offer. Given its high status, you’re only likely to find Giorgio Armani clothing and accessories in specialist stores, concessions in high-end department stores, and great online eyewear websites.
Giorgio Armani eyewear is classy and understated, with a dark colour palette. There are plenty of vintage shapes and patterns thrown in, all handled with great delicacy and finesse. Giorgio Armani has an impressive range of sunglasses and glasses — we have a huge selection here at Red Hot Sunglasses.
