Giorgio Armani Ready To Retire? – 29/10/09

"I'm already organizing staff who will continue my work. Of course I am not eternal, there comes a time when you must hand it over." - Giorgio Armani.

There you have it – straight from the horse’s mouth (via Reuters). Or is this just Armani’s way of toying with the media?

We can’t be sure. All we know is that earlier in the month, there was a major reshuffle of Armani’s senior management team (see the MO Down for 2 October) so perhaps an official announcement is imminent?... We’ll keep you posted.
