Giorgio Armani has just recently signed a four year agreement with the Italian Football Federation as its Fashion and Luxury Outfitter.
The collaboration will see Armani designing for the men’s Italian national football team, the national Under 21s and the women’s national team.
The team’s uniforms will now be Emporio Armani and consists of a suit paired with a shirt and overcoat. In line with Armani style, the uniform will be formal but comfortable: jersey is the material of choice, as it is relaxed and practical, and outerwear can be worn across the seasons thanks to detachable linings. The uniform includes shoes, and accessories such as kit bag, backpack and belt, as well as small leather goods and Emporio Armani eyewear.
Giorgio Armani said, “This agreement makes me particularly happy: I am returning to football after my experience with Chelsea and Bayern, and once again I am dressing the Italian national team, as I did for the 1994 World Cup.
“I am proud to partner with the FIGC and to offer our athletes my idea of soft formality and elegant practicality. I have created a wardrobe that is consistent with my vision, designed for athletes who are constantly on the move. It is another way to communicate Italy’s sense of style to the world.”
