"If you can't make it to Milan to visit Armani/Silos, the designer's newly opened museum, this book offers something even better: a VIP tour of his 40 years in fashion, conducted by Mr. Armani himself."
"Chronicling his life from war-stricken beginnings to the building of his clothing empire that soon became known and revered the world round, you can immerse yourself in Armani’s world. . . Beyond juicy tidbits previously unknown to the public, the book also takes a look at the slow but steady rise of the Armani Empire."
"The images speak for themselves, the stylistic arc of a man whose career, which took off in the late 1970s, captured the loyalty of a rising feminist wave of working women and Hollywood stars of both sexes, and eventually came to rule over an Italian empire recognized all over the globe. . . But more than anything, what emerges is the first real insight into the mind of a man, and it is humanizing."
“Giorgio Armani is a very beautiful and distinctly no-nonsense book, by and about a designer who spent many years at the very top of the fashion tree— simply by ignoring what other designers were doing and following his own aesthetic."
