Armani Upgrades Their Website To Incorporate Social Media – 12/2/10

While Burberry basks in the media spotlight in the lead up to their 3-D live screenings of their runway show (see the MO Down for 10 February for details), Armani has been quietly increasing their web presence.

We read in The Independent that Armani relaunched their website earlier this month to bring all of its collections under one virtual roof (Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani, Armani Collezioni, Armani Jeans, Armani Exchange, Armani Junior and Armani Casa).

Offered in Italian, English and Japanese, the new site includes links to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter accounts and lets viewers digitally explore the Armani stores worldwide.

This is not the first time we’ve noticed Armani embracing the internet and social media. In December, they launched an impressive ‘Christmas Wish’ website (click here to see our December 3 article).
