Alicia Keys and Armani are once again teaming up. Alicia has commissioned Armani to design a whole new wardrobe for the European leg of her “Element of Freedom” tour. The wardrobe will include several signature Georgio Armani and Emporio Armani looks, including military style jackets, a silk chiffon ball gown and a show stopping LBD in viscoe lame with a cascade ruffle. All the designs will have an extra touch of bling thanks to the many Swarovski crystals Armani embellished them with. A firsthand look at the designs will happen when Alicia kicks off the European leg of her tour in June. However sketches of the designs can be seen below.
Designer Georgio Armani announced today that singer-songwriter Solange Knowles would be their new Global Ambassador for Armani Jeans. Global Ambassador- sounds like a fancy way of calling the sista a spokesperson. This reminds me of the time my friend referred to her laundry room as a fabric care center (lol). Anyway- Solange’s duties as Global Ambassador include wearing the jeans while promoting her album during her European promotional tour, which is due to kick off in early September. Giorgio Armani said in a statement about the singer, “Armani Jeans expresses my vision of a young, independent, casual lifestyle with a strong and cool fashion sensibility. Solange epitomizes this style perfectly and brings to it that swing so evident in her new single, I Decided.
