Linen and cotton
Although Giorgio Armani oversees numerous product lines, menswear has remained central to his success. He has cultivated interest in his clothes through their high-profile appearances – from the wardrobe he designed for Richard Gere in the 1980 film American Gigolo to his tailored evening wear frequently seen on today’s ‘red carpet’.
