Armani/Silos, artistic space created by Giorgio Armani, that we’ve already talked about in our dedicated article, is a large exposition space inside a building constructed in 1950 which spreads out over four floors, which the stylist founded last April to celebrate his forty years in fashion. On the inside, you’ll find a selection of items of men’s and women’s clothing divided by colour and theme in a magical scenario, which shows a large style story in a discreet and elegant way.
On the ground floor will be shown – up to 27th November – the photographic exhibition Emotions of the Athletic Body. The show is presented with black and white photographic snapshots, the floor recreates the orange colour of the athletics track and the result is a suggestive ambience, full of concepts which spill out of every photo: physicality, dynamicity, force, sweat and emotion.
Each depiction is a work of art which represents a genuine event. As the aforementioned Armani says: “I’ve always been fascinated by the cult of sport (…). This show is intended to exalt the sporting attitude combined with the aesthetic, a concept which has always been a part of my vocabulary. Through fashion I have attempted to interpret the sense of competition by clothing sportspeople for my publicity campaign, choosing from amongst world-famous athletes, but also from colours which still inspire glory”.
Great masters such as Howard Schatz, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott cover the walls. Emotions of the Athletic Body also supports Special Olympics, the international sporting organisation for people with intellectual disabilities. Once again, King Giorgio has created an unforgettable spectacle… Absolutely cannot be missed!
