Armani launches anniversary exhibition in Japan

Eccentrico exhibition by Armani, Tokyo

To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the opening of Armani/Ginza Tower in Tokyo, Giorgio Armani have unleashed the exhibition “Eccentrico”, an exhibition of accessories, clothes and jewellery from his collections to the Japanese public. The Eccentrico exhibition launched in Milan in September during women’s fashion week and will be open to the public in Japan from November 30th to December 13th.

The exhibition showcases 51 dresses from the Giorgio Armani and Giorgio Armani Privé collections – 51 refined creations, dating from 1985 to the present, that with their evocative beauty conjure up a vision of exquisite elegance, and feature fantastic, imaginative ideas that appear to transform the very essence of things. In addition to these, there are over 200 accessories on show including jewellery, shoes, bags and hats.

Giorgio Armani says, “After Milan, I wanted to bring Eccentrico to Tokyo to celebrate five years of Armani/Ginza Tower, to pay tribute to my love of Japanese culture and aesthetics, which have often inspired me in my work.”

A private preview of the exhibition took place during the anniversary event. The Armani/Ginza Tower was specially transformed for the occasion: on the two floors that house Emporio Armani a DJ played a set, and cocktails were served in a casual environment; on the floor that houses Giorgio Armani womenswear there was an exhibition of 28 sketches of dresses that are being shown in Eccentrico.
