ROME, July 2 —Italian fashion house Giorgio Armani and the French carmaker Bugatti have joined forces for a capsule collection of luxury ready-to-wear clothing and accessories, showcasing the elegance and expertise that characterise the two brands.
The “Giorgio Armani for Bugatti” range is a high-end men’s clothing and accessories collection aimed at sophisticated gents. It features superior-quality materials, such as calfskin, crocodile, cashmere and suede, used to craft a series of limited edition and individually numbered garments and accessories.
“It was very natural to come together with Bugatti. We both worship things that are made well, made to last, created out of the best materials. The capsule condenses this encounter in a series of clothes and accessories designed to be worn by men who only look for the best and who live an active and dynamic lifestyle,” explains Giorgio Armani.
Due to land for the autumn/winter 2016-2017 season, the collection uses the symbols of the Bugatti brand, notably the horseshoe emblem seen on the front of its cars and the colour blue. More generally, the collection’s colour palette ranges from blue to cognac to khaki green.
The collection includes a wide range of luxury accessories, including a handmade calfskin briefcase — also available in matte crocodile skin — a weekend bag, belts, washbags, wallets and iPad cases.
As for clothing, the “Giorgio Armani for Bugatti” range features a coat and a jacket in double cashmere, cashmere sweaters, a leather jacket, denim jeans, a cashmere cap, a sports blazer in crocodile skin and calfskin sneakers.
The “Giorgio Armani for Bugatti” collection is due out August 2016 in selected Giorgio Armani stores and in Bugatti lifestyle boutiques. — AFP-Relaxnews
