EXPANSIVE ARMANI: Armani Group and Swiss watchmaker Omega both announced plans to open retail stores in Shanghai in January 2004. Armani will open a multistore location that will include a Giorgio Armani boutique, an Emporio Armani store and an Armani Caffe. It is only the second time that the Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani collections will be available in the same building — the first, at Chater House in Hong Kong, opened last October.

The new shops will be located on The Bund, which is fast becoming Shanghai’s center for high-end dining and designer shopping. Claudio Silvestrin will be responsible for the design of the Giorgio Armani store and Massimilano and Doriana Fuksas will design the Emporio Armani shop and Caffe.
