Less than a month after announcing its partnership with Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana, e-tailer Yoox has said it is readying an online destination to shop all of Armani’s ranges under one virtual roof.
The new armani.com Online Store “Powered by YOOX Group” will be launched in the second half of 2011.
Armani.com will be mainly active in Europe, the US, Japan and China, and will feature the Giorgio Armani, Armani Collezioni, Armani Junior, EA7, Emporio Armani and Armani Jeans brands.

Yvan Rodic, the street style photographer behind the Face Hunter, has released a new video as part of Armani‘s ‘real people’ campaign.
For the debut of its new Heritage Frames glasses last month, Armani previously enlisted some of Rodic’s colleagues.
Tommy Ton shot print ads for the Frames of your Life project, designed to showcase the collection on people on the street, not professional models.
Rihanna will replace Megan Fox in the next cycle of underwear and jeans ads for Emporio Armani.
Rumors were previously swirling when the star tweeted: “U would NEVER guess what I’m doing right now!!! Hint Hint #Armani,” but now it’s official: she will star in the campaign for both lines starting this fall.
Rihanna is upping her advertising game at the moment, also having just been named the new face of skincare brand Nivea.

David Beckham has lent his face and body to Armani in the past, starring in the Italian label’s underwear ads to the joy of female fans worldwide, but it seems the star athlete has had enough of sharing revenues earned with his good looks.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, Armani‘s turnover almost doubled during the time Beckham was spokesmodel for the brand.
“It proved to me that there is a real market for good-looking, well-made men’s bodywear,” Beckham told the paper, adding that “the push to do something of my own really came as a result of my collaboration with Armani.”
Giorgio Armani, the man behind one of the world’s biggest fashion chains, is in talks with advisers over funding to build his first hotel in Britain.
The 200-plus room luxury venue could be built in Knightsbridge, west London, near the iconic Harrods store.
Among options under consideration is whether to convert office space or an old hotel into a £300million-plus site, the Dailymail reports.
