The Armani Group reopened its newly designed Giorgio Armani boutique in Los Angeles, at 436 North Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills recently. Fascinated by the vitality and spirit of the city, as well as the world of cinema, Giorgio Armani first opened this historic store in August 1988.
The reopening and renovation underscores Giorgio Armani's strong relationship with the world of film, entertainment and music. In honor of the opening, a private cocktail party was held this evening hosted by Roberta Armani in celebration of longtime friend and muse of the house, Nicole Kidman, for her Best Actress nomination for her performance in “Being the Ricardos”. Guests from the entertainment, fashion, society, arts and business worlds gathered with top clients at the newly renovated Giorgio Armani boutique for this exclusive Oscar weekend celebration.
Raff Law added: ‘Sharing the frame with my father for Brioni is very exciting. Although we naturally both have different tastes and perspectives, we share a lot of the same passions too. One of those is that we both have a love for clothing and Brioni is something we agree on.’ Mehdi Benabadji, CEO of Brioni, said: ‘Jude Law is a great master of his art and Raff is a rising talent in the same universe. Both of them have a strong personal style and a natural complicity. This authenticity makes the Laws a perfect pairing to reflect Brioni’s modern vision of menswear, in which distinctions of age and personality are blurred by a shared passion for genuine craftmanship and elegance. All of us at Brioni are excited to be working alongside Jude and Raff.’
By contrast, the JCXM STRAP celebrates the art of shoemaking, with strapping that worships the foot with tiny buckled leather straps - an homage to the fine leather sandals of Jimmy Choo in the 1990s, and a signature of Mugler. Here, they cross not only the ankle but the vamp and toe, a graphic tool to frame the foot. They are translated into trompe l’oeil for the JCXM SOCK PUMP - a boot that instead resembles a high strapped, crystal-studded pump on a leg encased in a Mugler stocking - a true fusion of both fashion brands in one statement piece. The logical conclusion to a collection that celebrates the body in every form is the JCXM SANDAL, a shoe that plays with plexi appearing to magically float under the form of the naked foot, only anchored into position with a sparkling crystal ball balanced between the toes. The ultimate marriage of the female form divine and an uncompromising modern glamour - it is unmistakably Mugler, and quintessentially Jimmy Choo.
“Casey Cadwallader’s Mugler is all about celebrating femininity - that’s what drew me to him, to his world, and to the amazing array of personalities he dresses. There’s an inherent connection there between the language of Mugler and the language of Jimmy Choo - our roots in the 1990s, the resonance those have today with a younger generation, but the urge to update, to re-engineer and not just revive. On a personal level - Casey adores shoes, the possibilities for transforming both a silhouette and an attitude through footwear. It’s been a joy working together on this collection, dedicated to the strong women that are at the heart of both Mugler and Jimmy Choo.” Sandra Choi, Creative Director Jimmy Choo. “’A shoe finishes the look and defines character. I have always associated Jimmy Choo with a very strong sense of sculpture in shoes, a balance of sharpness and curve. Both Mugler and Jimmy Choo are forward and sensual, and both worn by strong and confident women. That's why this collaboration makes so much sense. There’s a clear synergy between Sandra and I when we work together.” Casey Cadwallader, Creative Director Mugler.
