Aldo Fallai per Giorgio Armani, 1977 –2021

ARMANI / DECEMBER 2023

The exhibition “Aldo Fallai per Giorgio Armani, 1977 – 2021,” which opened at Armani/Silos in Milan, celebrates nearly 30 years of artistic collaboration between Giorgio Armani and Aldo Fallai.

From Dec. 5, 2023 to Aug. 11, 2024, the exhibition explores the boundaries of a unique collaboration between Florentine photographer Aldo Fallai and designer Giorgio Armani that began in the early 1970s.


The exhibition, curated by Giorgio Armani, Rosanna Armani and Leo Dell’Orco, tells the story of this collaboration, which began when Armani was a young fashion designer and Fallai a graphic designer with a passion for photography. Their artistic understanding allowed them to create a distinctive imagery, combining cinematic, neorealist elements and references to Renaissance and Mannerist painting. The use of black and white and narrative abstraction make their images timeless, capturing moments that seem real but are purely invented.

Some of the photos in the exhibition

The exhibition features about two hundred and fifty shots: intimate portraits, billboards with huge media impact, exploring different Armani lines. Among the images on display are a photo with a tiger taken in Palermo, an image of a career woman impersonated by Antonia Dell’Atte, and evocative settings such as the Venetian lagoon re-created in the studio and the statues of the Foro Italico. The photographs are at once familiar and surprising, taken with inventiveness and intelligence.

👚 Nasce nel 1972 la Polo, l’iconica maglietta con il colletto disegnata dallo stilista designer statunitense Ralph Lauren.

🐎 Ogni dettaglio doveva essere perfetto: il tessuto in puro cotone; i bottoni realizzati a punto croce; l’iconico colletto a coste; il giocatore di polo ricamato sul petto sinistro. 

👕 In questi 50 anni è stata indossata da star del cinema, presidenti, atleti e artisti e da quasi tutti noi!
