Couple of weeks ago Giorgio Armani opened his flagship hotel in Milan in an unpretentious atmosphere due to the Italian financial crisis.
Not the best of time in fact to boast a luxurious. 11.000 Euros-per-night presidential suite… The hotel follows the opening of the Armani Hotel inDubai, within the Burji Khalifa Building, which is the world’s tallest building, and anticipates further similar projects by the designer in cities like Marrakech, London, Shanghai and New York.
Located in Via Manzoni, right in the heart of Milan, the Armani Hotel has 95 rooms. Guests can treat themselves to a seventh-floor panoramic restaurant with views on the Duomo and, after the efforts of an intense shopping session in the city, they can indulge in the pleasures offered by a gym, a relaxation pool, and a rooftop state-of-the art spa. What more can one ask for?
Interiors are definitely one of my favourite subjects. Wherever I am, I always look at shapes, colours, fabrics, and all details. Here the concept is based on a sophisticated minimalism, which is also Armani’s signature in the realm of fashion. Clean lines and neutral tones dominate this space in the same way they dominate the designer’s collections. I love the sense of effortless perfection that exudes from Armani’s designs, although I think that the same aesthetics applied to a hotel can create a cold atmosphere – and I like cosy places! But of course, this is just my opinion, and it’s a fact that the Armani is an absolutely beautiful hotel. So if you are planning to come to Milan keep it in mind, this is definitely and incredible place to be….
