TOKYO — Giorgio Armani is eying the Japanese market with cautious optimism as the country’s consumer confidence picks up and the Emporio Armani brand settles into a relocated flagship on Omotesando Avenue.
“I think the Japanese market is one of the markets where we can expect steady growth for the [next] couple of years,” said Izumi Sasano, chief executive officer of Giorgio Armani Japan, which plans to open at least another 10 stores in the country this year.
