Armani is among the most prominent Italian brands created and still led by Giorgio Armani. No matter where we go, Armani boutiques are present in every bigger city all around the world. In the last twenty years, Armani has reached which not many designers can do: to become really one of the most known and appreciated brands in the world. Dubai has several deeper contacts with Armani, through the love of fashion and through the Emaar Properties, which in cooperation with Armani has created the Armani Hotels and Resorts and the Armani Residences concept among which we can find already two present in Dubai.
Armani has always represented the eternal Italian elegance and the Italian desire of both men and women who always aim to look their very best, no matter where they go or what they do. Since the opening of the first Armani Boutique in Italy in 1975, the brand today represents through its different lines in 37 countries. In Dubai, we can find several Armani Boutiques in the biggest shopping centres of the city, the Dubai Mall, the Mall of the Emirates, the BurJuman Shopping Centre and in the Deira City Center. Armani boutiques are also present in different hotels, through their watches and jewellery line. Armani accessories, preferably handbags, scarves, belts, watches, sunglasses and suits for men are very popular among Dubai locals and Armani is a place where also expats and tourists love to go shopping. The reason for this it that the prices are much lower in Dubai than anywhere else, because of them being duty–free.
Armani started its cooperation with one of the biggest Dubai construction companies the Emaar Properties in order to make a joint group of luxury hotels and residences, which would all wear the name of Armani with the interior designs and concepts designed by the Italian designer himself. The first Armani Hotel and Resort have opened in Dubai in a really high-profile place, which is none other than the highest building in the world named Burj Khalifa located in downtown Dubai. The beautifully designed hotel wears the trendiest Italian colours of interior designing namely the shades of warm brown, beige and black and looks fully stylish with a huge Spa, 5 restaurants that have their menus also created by the world famous designer. The Armani Hotel has great services and it occupies the bottom 39 floors of the Burj Khalifa, which also contains the Armani Residences created for those who wish to invest in a luxury flat designed by Armani in the trendiest building, in the trendiest Middle Eastern city. Of course, the hotel has its own great Armani boutique too.
Armani watches are highly popular in Dubai. The brand’s local dealer is Ahmed Seddiqi and Sons who are the most prominent dealers of luxury watches. We all know the great love of Dubai for all sorts of luxury jewellery, so it is no wonder that the stylish watches of Armani have a great success in the Middle Eastern city.
