HONG KONG — Giorgio Armani believes in going big, and Asia is his next target.
Armani has opened a retail space here second in size and scope only to his Via Manzoni store in Milan. The store is a physical representation of Armani’s goals in the Far East — Armani Chater House takes up 30,000 square feet, 20,000 of which are devoted to sales. It is the first time anywhere that the company’s two main runway collections, Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani, can be found under one roof, and it’s a stepping stone to expansion in China, which the designer describes as having "enormous potential."
