Giorgio Armani opened his new 5th Avenue, NYC store.
The staircase is a ridiculously, incredible feat of engineering and design. The whole building looks like functional art.
Pretty much like his clothing.
I have been a huge fan of his in terms of aesthetic for as long as I can remember. His vision is so pure and focused that whatever gets made, created, & designed follows the same theme. Everything works in unison to create the uttermost perfect Armani world. It can be dizzying for mere mortals like me, but definitely something to be inspired by.
Time for a trip to NYC. I never need an excuse, but I will use this one.
Great article in the New York Times regarding the new store and
Mr. Armani's take on it all.
