Giorgio Armani S.p.A Expands Its Dealings With David Jones – 13/5/10

Some positive local news: Giorgio Armani S.p.A. has signed an exclusive agreement with David Jones to become the only Australian department store to stock Armani Collezioni, Armani Jeans, and Armani leather goods and soft accessories.

According to an article in Ragtrader, “Over the next two years, David Jones plans to open 16 additional Armani Jeans areas, of which there are currently six. It also plans to launch 14 new Emporio Armani accessories and shoe locations, as well as four additional Armani Collezioni areas to add to the current 13.”

Giorgio Armani S.p.A. definitely have their eye on the Australian luxury market. In July last year, Emporio Armani set up shop in Perth with an impressive freestanding store. Click here for our commentary (Emporio Armani Graces Perth With Its Presence).
