Giorgio Armani: Radical Gender

Giorgio Armani is an important new monograph on the Italian designer who changed fashion history. The androgynous look that characterizes many of Armani's collections reflects an exchange between different identities and cultures, resulting in his iconic contemporary style. His designs highlight the qualities of strength in women, just as his menswear collections emphasize a feminine sensuality and tenderness.    

This volume includes an incredible collection of images by the most famous photographers who have worked with Armani over the years, including Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, and Annie Leibovitz, among others. The result is a vivid and exciting portrait of our times and of the man who, thanks to his innovative designs, has been able to interpret and even anticipate them.
