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.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
