MILAN — To celebrate 20 years in a market that has become quite competitive, last week Armani lured a crowd of fashionistas and Italian celebrities to his Armani Privé space here, where he showed a retrospective photographic exhibition of eyewear ad images from the past two decades.
Armani pioneered designer eyewear back in 1988, when he signed a licensing deal with Luxottica. His first collection of Thirties-inspired oval frames in tortoiseshell acetate not only charted a new course for designer brand extension but grew into a $300 million business.
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)
