MILAN — In a new multi-sensorial venture, Armani Jeans is rolling out its new “Aromas” project.
The brand will offer three new styles of jeans for men and men inspired by a metal: iron. A vial of perfume will be contained in a pocket on each pair of jeans.
Iron was chosen because of its “ability to change its appearance by acquiring a new sheen through chrome-plating, and by ageing with the passing of time to become rougher and more worn-looking,” said the company in a statement. The models are named “Iron Base,” “Chrome,” and “Rusty Attitude,” depending on whether the material is presented in its original form, chromed, or with a rusty patina.
A different fragrance is associated with each theme. “The intention is to link styles of jeans to their own specific scents,” said the company. “Iron Base” jeans are available with the Armani Code fragrance; “Chrome” jeans are paired with one of the company’s best sellers, Acqua di Giò, and “Rusty Attitude” jeans are linked to the Attitude scent. A shoulder bag, also with a pocket that holds the perfume miniature, will be included in the purchase.
“Aromas” will be available at Armani Jeans stores and select Emporio Armani stores until the end of December.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
