Armani Museum, Milan

The exhibition space was opened in 2015 and is a living, open-to-the-public space illustrating Giorgio Armani’s professional experience, revealing a rich heritage of unique know-how: a space in which to design the future, a showcase of new attitudes and lifestyles that capture changing times and cultures. Armani/Silos*, located at Via Bergognone 40, is in what was originally the granary of a major international company. ‘I decided to call it Silos because this building used to store food, which is, of course, essential for life. For me, just as much as food, clothes are also a part of life,’ explains Giorgio Armani. Following the renovation, the building, constructed in 1950, measures around 4,500 square metres on four levels. The designer conceived and oversaw the renovation project himself.

Collection

The opening exhibition, covering all four floors of the building, offers an overview of the designer’s career, including 600 outfits and 200 accessories from Giorgio Armani’s collections from 1980 to the present. The selection is divided up on the basis of a number of themes that have inspired and continue to inspire the designer’s creative work:

  • Ground floor: Daywear
  • First floor: Exoticism
  • Second floor: Colour Schemes
  • Third floor: Light
