When one visits one of his many spectacular homes, it’s easy to draw the connection of his interiors style to his fashion designs. We particularly increased our appreciation for his accessories and scarves after understanding how he plays with vintage, silks, and ethnics as well as he does. Softening the spaces of his home are an array of colorful pillows and traditional carpets. Silk wall coverings sheathe the bedrooms, and cotton sheers are elegantly swagged across the glass ceiling of the loggia. For the house’s furnishings, ­Armani chose a mix of antiques found at the Saint-Tropez flea market and pieces from his own Armani/Casa label, most clad in muted, monochromatic upholstery. One spirited exception to the visual serenity is a pair of vintage armchairs in the entrance hall that he fished out of a warehouse and covered in a spicy tiger-striped velvet. “This is the great folly of the house,” he says with a laugh. “It’s a bit kitsch, but I can have a little fun with exotic things.” And what of the Armani/Casa desk sitting in his tranquil studio? “I put it there thinking, I like this corner,” the designer explains. “Who knows, maybe one day I’ll want to sit down and write something.” For now, however, any autobiography is on hold, though the first monograph on his brand will be published by Rizzoli in the fall. “People always ask me how I have fun,” Armani says, alluding to his unrelenting schedule. “I have fun with my homes, which have been my greatest investments. I don’t buy Picassos, I buy houses. This is a passion I’ve had since I was young—creating ambiences that make you want to stay.” Source: architecturaldigest.com #muslim #designers #IFDC #islamic #islamicdesigners #modest #modest designers #islamicfashion #fashion #art #Islamicfashionanddesigncouncil #islamicclothing #clothing #islamicart #ifash #idez #islamicdesign #islamicfashiondesigncouncil #hijab #hijabdress #dress #hijabclothing #hijabwear #streetwear #abaya #abayawear #abayaclothing #modest #modestwear #modestfashion #modestclothing #fashioncouncil #islamiccouncil #muslim #muslimdress #muslimclothes #muslimclothing #fulldress #covered #modernfashion #culture #culturalfashion #halal #halalfashion #tayyeb #tayyebclothes #tayyebfashion #hijabnews #fashionnews #abayanews #news #fashionshows #events #fashionevents #islamicevents #muslimEvents
