TOKYO TOUR: Giorgio Armani’s fascination with the East continues. Just returned from a grand fashion show event in Beijing, the designer exclusively unveiled his fall Emporio Armani ad campaign to WWD. The images, taken by Alasdair McLellan in Tokyo, show models Anna De Rijk, Tao Okamoto, Paolo Anchisi and Alfred Kovac posing against the city’s nocturnal skyline or brightly lit-up billboards, as the graphic and strong signs of the Japanese characters put the spotlight on a sleeveless, beribboned velvet dress or a softly draped cape.
The campaign will debut internationally in July.
