Giorgio Armani has partnered with Mohamed Ali Alabbar of Emaar Hotel & Resorts LLC. to create 10 hotels under the name of Armani Hotels and Resorts. This collection of exclusive hotels, resorts and residences bringing to life Giorgio Armaniâ€™s vision of stylish, harmonious environments for living. From the room designs to the carefully selected textiles and fabrics to the impeccable service, every aspect of the Armani hotel experience will bear the Armani personal signature.
Giorgio Armani said:
â€œThis marks the beginning of a new chapter in the Armani story. In this our thirtieth anniversary year, I cannot think of a more energising prospect than bringing my philosophy of style and design to a collection of hotels and resorts. Today, more than ever before fashion has expanded to encompass our way of life, not just how we dress, but where we live, which estaurants we eat at, which car we drive, where we go on holiday and which hotels we stay in. I strongly believe that for those people who enjoy the Armani fashion and home furnishings collections, there will be a real enthusiasm for the possibility to now stay at an Armani hotel or resort.â€
The first Armani hotel is set to open in late 2008 as part of the Emaar Properties Burj Dubai development, which will be the world’s tallest residential and commercial development when completed.Read more
