The main difference between Emporio Armani and Armani Collezioni is that the former aims at a younger age group and focuses on each season’s trends like other designer brands in Milan fashion week, while the latter is a former & business style aimed at an older age group.

This line does not feature Giorgio Armani’s signature simplicity. The colors used are more diverse than those found in his higher end lines. Brazilian Midfielder Kaka was signed to endorse the jeans.

Armani Exchange

To accelerate development of the nascent line, Giorgio Armani co-established the joint venture company Presidio Holdings Ltd in 2005 alongside Como Holdings, the company owned by the Singaporean tycoon Ong Beng Seng that, since 1994, has held the production and distribution license for A/X Armani Exchange in the United States, Canada, Central and South America and Asia-Pacific.

Initially, the Italian company held 25% of Presidio Holdings, the remaining 75% in the hands of Como Holdings. Giorgio Armani had nothing to do with the brand itself other than the owners using the name “Armani”. In 2008, however, Giorgio Armani acquired an additional 25% stake. It has now acquired the remaining 50% “ensuring full ownership of the brand, which has 270 stores and over 3,000 employees,” the company said in a statement.
