NEW YORK — Mayor Michael Bloomberg proclaimed today Giorgio Armani Day. The honor comes for a reason: it recognizes Armani’s longtime relationship with New York City, including his contribution to the local economy and support for public schools here.
The city’s proclamation is also timed with “One Night Only,” the designer’s multifaceted megaevent at Hudson River Park’s SuperPier tonight. The evening will kick off with a display of his “Eccentrico” installation of unique clothes and accessories. Armani has shown this before, but the New York edition will be more extensive, including special new photography of some of the looks displayed imposingly on the walls of the exhibition space (“Eccentrico” will be open to the public Friday through Sunday).
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
