Giorgio Armani has founded its Luxury House in Milan in 1975 with a premiere ready-to-wear collection. Since the late 70s Giorgio Armani is considered as one of the leading international Houses.
The Armani signature item was the jacket: he was the one who reinvented the most classical of men’s garments for women.
He dismounted and recreated the piece, by eliminating its internal supports and the padding, he moved the buttons and modified the epaulets. In 1974 he created the first men’s jacket with a less strict aspect, and its women’s counterpart.
