MILAN — Giorgio Armani is strengthening his ties with the world of theater with costumes for the play “Letter to a Man,” starring dancer and choreographer Mikhail Baryshnikov.

In the show, created and directed by Robert Wilson, Baryshnikov wears pieces from the Giorgio Armani collection, including a tuxedo in black crepe, a classic dark suit and a selection of white and black shirts.

“Letter to a Man” stems from diaries written in 1919 by Vaslav Nijinsky, narrating the story of one of the greatest dancers and choreographers of the last century, who descends into madness.

After its debut in July in Spoleto, Italy, the show is now being staged at Milan’s Teatro dell’Arte through September 20, before starting an international tour, which includes stops in Madrid, Monte Carlo, Paris, New York and Los Angeles.
